The kind of Christian I want to be is accepting of all people no matter who they love, what they look like, what language they speak or what religion they choose to practice. To be being a Christian means not judging others and having empathy towards everyone. Like they say; to able to walk a mile in another person’s shoes. It means being an advocate for the poor and disabled and any other oppressed people wherever they may be. It means practicing what I preach and not being afraid to share my faith. It means forgiving others and restraining myself when I want to react. It means rejecting consumerism in all of its forms and resisting the temptation to hoard money and earthly goods. It means giving what I can to the poor humbly without telling others, because its not about me; its about praising God through good deeds. Its means treating others ( including animals) with the utmost respect; I must treat everyone I know as children of god that deserve kindness. Its means being in constant prayer with God and living my life according to his will. I am not perfect and don’t think God expects perfection. To be honest I often fall short of God’s expectations but I am trying to be a better, more compassionate person who values align more with the values of Christianity and Jesus. I strive to grow in my faith and trust God will guide to me to where I need to be. Amen.

Hello, my name is Dave. I love to write, it is my passion, I try to be vulnerable and honest in all of my posts. I hope to use writing to make a difference in the lives of others and help myself in the process; this blog has been very therapeutic and I can't believe I never took the time to write in the " about me" section. I am not a professional writer but it would be a dream of mine to be published. Please take the time to read this blog and feel free to comment anytime. View all posts by revolutionarymusings
