Some people are very direct and straightforward but to the point of being rude. Or they say things that the average person wouldn’t say in public that might cause offence, but hey. We should speak our minds right? Now I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with speaking our minds, and that we shouldn’t be honest but saying things that might cause offence to others might be a little tricky to deal with, I mean let’s think about how others might feel if we say certain things. I believe there’s a way to say what we mean in a respectful and thoughtful way no matter what it is. We shouldn’t just go blurting out things, we should keep a tight leash on out mouths as the bible says, before we fall into sin.
An amazing paradox though, Jesus was very controversial in his life, but not because he was being rude but because of the truth he spoke, and the unbelief from others then made it controversial and hard for people to take. Jesus teached in a way that no one did, and that’s what made the people shocked. He exposed them for their sin and hypocrisy but then he spoke of his loves and grace for those that would take in his truth. Sometimes even we ourselves and christians will come across as being controversial, because of the word of God and we have to stand for the truth, but as long as we keep or conduct about his word, there is no shame in this!
I’ve come across some shocking people in my life that just say things that are really not called for and there are reasons. Sometimes it’s for attention, they believe in the motto, any attention is good attention, while other times it’s more genuine, but prehaps less thought out. Even reading some of these controversial blogs just make me think, in a way to hear people like this allows ourselves to deal with things better. The word of God teaches us not to be offend and what better practice can we have than speaking to these people and learning how to peacefully converse or disagree right? It’s so amazing was reading the other day God puts certain people in our lives tp better us. Remember this. May Gods grace and love be with you. Please comment, I’m welcome to hear views!! 🙂
