-Lyrics- Why do we think that our hate's gonna break a hard heart
We're rippin arms over wars that don't need to be fought
Cause pride wont let us lay our weapons on the ground
We build our bridges up but it's just to burn them down
-Thoughts- This "Us verses Them" mentality is killing us.
-The Jesus Prayer "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner." Let's first look at ourselves and not pray begin with Lord have mercy on "them" a sinner.
-After we have done this we follow the example of the God man, Jesus. He forgave "them." Who said Father, forgive "them." The ones who crucified him, he forgave "them."
-Then even it feels like I am losing when I forgive, I know I am winning because I am being like Jesus. Someone has to stop the cycle of revenge.
-God help me, this "us verses them" if not dealt with will corrupt our souls, our nation's soul, the world's soul. We forgive 70x7. Not seek revenge 70x7.
