Love and Civility
Civility: Formal politeness and courtesy in behavior or speech.
Be careful. No one following Jesus will ever standby and let evil reign in the name of civility.
Speaking the truth without love is wrong, but those who speak the truth in love are often accused of lacking civility simply because those to whom they speak don’t want to hear the truth.
A byproduct of our call as the followers of Jesus is that people who are clinging to the unjust systems of this world are going to feel uncomfortable around us. That’s okay. It’s expected. It’s what you signed up for when you decided to follow Jesus.
Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.–Jesus (Luke 6:22)
