Getting Along--100 Words
Can’t we all just get along?
Obviously, the answer is no.
We can’t get along on the playground. We kick. Scratch. Pull hair. Spit. Cuss. Throw dirt.
We can’t get along at work. We backstab. We gossip. We go postal.
We can’t get along in church. We transfer membership. We fire staff. We worship others instead of God.
We can’t get along in our homes. We yell. Fight. Abuse. Ignore.
Can’t we all just get along? No. Not even as believers. Even though we are commanded to. What’s stopping us? Our humanity? Sin? Lack of prayer?
Shameful. Sad. Really is.
