We live in an age of ruthless greed. The latest sexual harassment charges that have hit the media-news allege that Judge Roy Moore had a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl 38 years ago. Here’s my point: At this juncture we have NO idea if these allegations are true or false. Yet, the media puts them out there with no regard—NO INTEGRITY—as to what this does to a person’s reputation. Let’s say these allegations are false, the damage has been done. The false, fake news, is out there and has planted seeds of discredibility in the minds of many, especially Mr Moore’s opposition/enemies. It’s just NOT right!
Ephesians 4:29 instructs us to “Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building up the one in need and bringing grace to those who listen.” As believers lets be different than a greedy world wanting attention and ratings regardless of the damage it does; let’s make sure our speech is seasoned with grace.
As to this weekend—it’s Veterans Day, which gives us the opportunity to honor and say “thank you” to our self-sacrificing VETERANS.
PS - As to the photo—I love the thought. How true!
