try being nice

Thursday June 9th, John 17: 1 after Jesus had finished speaking to his disciples, he looked up toward heaven and prayed: Father, the time has come for you to bring glory to your Son, in order that he may bring glory to you. 2 And you gave him power over all people, so that he would give eternal life to everyone you give him. 3 Eternal life is to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, the one you sent. Jesus was given power over all people so that he give power to all people. Along with this came the gift of eternal life. Eternal life is to know God. To know Jesus is to know God. Can it really be any more simple than that? Jesus was given power over all people to give them eternal life, which is to know God. Our job as the children of God is to live out our lives knowing that everyone we meet is a brother or a sister through Christ. If we don’t like it or if they don’t like it, well that is a problem to deal with. So far humanity has tried to deal with that problem by trying to be big deals (Manna & Mercy, by Dan Erlander, check out the link on the left) piling up stuff and killing other brothers and sisters. Maybe we should try being nice, being a child of God for a change.
