Before


Kindred,

Before you lash out, think about how you would feel if someone did that to you.
         
     If someone did that to you, how would you feel?  

Before you judge, think about how you would do in the same situation.

     How would you react?

Before you get mad, think about who threw the first punch. 

     Who was the instigator? 

Before you blame, think about the circumstances. 

     Under the same circumstances, what would you do? 

Before; what was it like before the troubles?

Before.


Before the lies and hatred,
Before the sins and temptations,
Before the Unholies,
What was it like?

Do you even remember?

Remember when excellence and love was the norm?
Remember when words meant something?

A time when there was honor,
A time when there was regard,
A time when there was respect,
A time when there was standing with the Lord.

A time when there was freedom,
     free from the lies and hatred,
     free from the sins and temptations,
     free from hypocrisy.

Do you remember?

Love.
