Foolish Words

It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. (1 Peter 2:15)

Read: Ezekiel 47:1-48:35, 1 Peter 2:11-3:7, Psalm 119:49-64, Proverbs 28:12-13 

Relate: Remember those Red Christmas cups? Was it last winter? No. I think it was two seasons back. Starbucks decided they were going to do a simple, minimalist Christmas design and made plain red cups. Apparently this meant that they were the spawn of Satan hell bent on destroying everything that was good in the world.  Ummm… really?

Then of course for more than a year there was, and still is the endless facebook rants leading up to the election. Granted, this was probably the poorest selection of candidates America has had for at least a century, but never before has there been such a great platform for so many people who have no clue to go on and on and on about the most pointless of minutae.

Most recently the NFL has come under heat. One or two players were making a conscientious decision to kneel during the national anthem as a statement against inequality. There was a little talk here and there for or against what they were doing but it was not really that big of a deal. Then Trump tweets (somebody should really confiscate that guy’s phone, for America’s sake). The next Sunday hundreds of athletes are now kneeling in “solidarity”, the NFL is issuing statements, the sports talk shows are all weighing in and once again facebook is aflame with the ignorant talk of foolish people. I really wish I could say I was not one of them, but I have to admit that I did get sucked in… again.
