We live in a land that is starving for shalom, for peace. As followers of Jesus how do we step into this divisive culture and say anything meaningful? Who do we say anything meaningful to?
The best listeners will be people we have earned the right to speak to. People we have listened to and maybe even served. When we give a cup of water or otherwise serve another human being, it shares the concept that we care about them. The old saying nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care has never been more applicable.
