Last week, a gunman killed more than 10 people at a small community college in Oregon & there’s been a renewed outcry for greater gun control in the US. For Americans, this is a difficult quandary for lots of reasons, including something about the right to bear arms, somewhere in our Bill of Rights.
Whether you agree or disagree with gun control, I think that it’s worthwhile to consider that the gun user is most likely more dangerous than the gun. And for that matter, let’s take an even bigger step back & think about how frequently we might use our mouths to shoot up another person’s character, mock their personality or magnify their mistakes.
It’s easy to point the gun, so to speak, at someone else. But let’s be sure that our words, character and actions reflect Jesus, if we claim to be His follower 🙂
