Your Words Build Walls

Standard

I saw this picture on Twitter this morning with a tweet that read,

This is how the Republican Party should act if they want to call themselves Christians.

Am I the only one that cringes when I see words like these? Regardless of whether you are republican, democrat, independent, Christian, atheist…shouldn’t we all be quick to invite someone to our table and less excited and willing to judge? Shouldn’t we extend kindness and invitation despite the size of our table or whether or not we even have one at all? 

Don’t words and posts like the one we see here build the biggest walls of all?

 I personally am sick of hypocritical nonsense. When is the last time you have invited anyone to your own table? I am ashamed to admit I haven’t invited a single person over to mine in a very long time. 

Words are damaging human relationships. Words are building walls that are becoming impenetrable. We are the wall. We build the wall with every word, every action of disrespect and contempt for another soul. When we stand in solidarity to destroy one another, the least we can do is admit we are not only the material but also the ones who construct it. Be the wall or don’t. It’s your choice.
