Advent, a week on Love

Blanket statements such as “you’re all terrorists!” Or “you’re all homophobic!” show more fear and ignorance than they do wisdom or reason. 

But my question is to those who hear those statements being directed at them. Have you stopped short in your reaction and taken time to consider what is in the heart of the Person who makes those claims? Perhaps they have been abused and treated unjustly. Perhaps the injustice of their past is the truer cause and it’s not about you at all…would you maybe take time to respond differently, or perhaps just give yourself to listening?
