Something to think about;
Finding the point of power
It amazes me how many people do not like or agree with the extreme left or right on sides. But are not willing to stand up and speak the truth in a calm manner. Their out of control slander and bullying has good people running for cover. I understand that because most of us are just too busy to play their game and they have no shame so they will do or say anything to hurt people.
But just like the bullies of old the only way to stop them is to stand up to them and tell them no, not yell it but calmly speak it. Let them slander you, let them attach you because in the end good will win, and none of the good people listen to it any way, every one knows its just how they try to hurt or shame people in to silence. If the people that fought for free speech in the days past saw what they were doing now, shame would not be a strong enough word for it.
The problem with this is that it causes a break down, in what could have been a workable scenario. As soon as the extreme point, doesn’t get what they feel they want, or they think they are intitled too, they shut people down and bring name calling and accusations into it. Once that happens and emotion takes over then the point of agreement is gone.
Whenever different parties find common ground, where they can agree it’s called the point of power, the point of agreement, is the point of power. As long as people take their focus on the issue and turn it on each other the point of power can never be reached, thus agreement and mutual happiness can never be found.
So, here’s the deal people, listen more than you speak, and think about the words you are saying and how you are saying them. Will your words help or just cause problems, is your goal to find the point of agreement or to destroy it? So, to finish this I turn to a passage I feel fits.
Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets”
