1. He lacks compassion.
The Bible says: “As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with #compassion, #kindness, #humility, #meekness, & #patience.” (Colossians 3:12)
2. He appeals to fear and anger- “But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; if you insult a brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; if you say ‘You fool,’ you will be liable to the hell of fire.” (Matthew 5: 22)
3. enamored with “greatness” & ego not goodness
“Blessed are meek, they will inherit earth. Blessed are those who hunger & thirst for righteousness, they will be filled. Blessed are merciful, they will receive mercy. Blessed are pure in heart, they will see God” (Matthew 5: 5-8)

1] Dear World,
Tonight my heart has broken. As I look through the Twitterverse, I can smell the hated, see the seething self righteousnessof people who no longer have any compassion, dignity, moral compass or love for any human being.
2] The political turmoil in every country around the world is at a fever pitch. Left Vs Right, every shred of common sense, decency and respect afforded to us has been thrown out the widow.
To take a break from the insane world I was viewing, I took a step away & went inside...
3] I went to check on my sleeping boys to ensure they were okay....then it hit me...& it hit me like a sucker punch to the gut. What sort of world were my boys going to inherit, how could they possibly survive the onslaught of everyone telling them what they should be....

1/ On #WorldKindnessDay let's talk about two ideas in alleged tension, both of which should be re-framed by their relationship to kindness. (1) "Political correctness" and (2) #civility
PC is always a complaint. Civility a demand. They're used as weapons of the status quo.
2/ When people complain about political correctness they're saying opportunities for kindness are oppressive. POC, LGBT, women, or disabled say "X language is unkind. It hurts us and it's a symbol of oppression and dehumanization." Reaction: you threaten my freedom.
3/ Freedom for what? To hurt your neighbors, to treat them as less human, to put them in their places, to retain your own discursive place at the top, a bull in a china shop. Make no mistake: complaints about PC are objections to human decency. That's it.

1. Have you ever heard of the butterfly effect? The gentle flutter of a butterfly’s wing can effect great change across the world, triggering something as massive as a typhoon. While the flapping of one butterfly’s wings does not actually

2. & directly cause a storm thousands of miles away, the lesson is powerful. The repercussions of our actions, both spiritual and physical, are far more complex than we can fathom. A sharp or snarky remark can be the arrow that pierces a person’s self-esteem.
3. A seemingly small, kind comment or good deed can be the key that unlocks another’s untapped strength. Every thought, word, and action, is like a pebble cast into the sea, causing immeasurable ripple effects. You may think to yourself, “But I’m just 1 out of 7 billion people?

THREAD ABOUT LIFE.
This is my wife with Presidents @BillClinton and Bush. We’re now back from an incredible few days in Little Rock for her @PLSprogram program. Highlights included talking to President Bush about his Mom, and the total madness of
Cori being seated next to W. for dinner. More important, in this time of massive political divisiveness, perhaps my favorite part was watching these two men — from opposite sides — find common ground, laughing, sharing, and being open and honest about their hardest days and
greatest regrets. As they pointed out, it is far easier to see our enemies as two-dimensional villains, rather than three-dimensional people. (I’m saying this especially to all the people who will write comments below about how they hate Clinton or Bush or Iraq or

1) We are each a spark of the Divine. Worthy as ever. And yet, sometimes we lose sight of our inherent value. That inner voice can become muffled by the narratives we play over and over in our mind. What are the messages that wear us down? In this moment, let’s challenge them.
2) What has caused us to forget that we are deserving? In this moment, let’s remind ourselves that our capacity for growth and strength is incredible. How can we reframe our experiences and begin viewing our lives from a more elevated perspective?
3) Are we ready to stop buying into old thoughts patterns and start trusting more empowering ones? Know this – there is so much more in store for you. The more we begin to believe this, with God’s help, the sooner we will receive what we hope, pray, and strive for. #believe
