As a Christian, I am simply trying to orient myself around living a particular kind of way, the kind of way that Jesus taught is possible.
And I think that the way of Jesus is the best possible way to live.
This isn’t irrational or primitive or blind faith. It is merely being honest that we all are living a “way”.
I’m convinced being generous is a better way to live.
I’m convinced forgiving people and not carrying around bitterness is a better way to live.
I’m convinced having compassion is a better way to live.
I’m convinced pursuing peace in every situation is a better way to live.
I’m convinced listening to the wisdom of others is a better way to live.
I’m convinced being honest with people is a better way to live.
This way of thinking isn’t weird or strange; it is simply acknowledging that everybody follows somebody,
and I’m trying to follow Jesus.
