Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor.
(1 Corinthians 13:5 TPT)
The way of love is so different than the way of self-promotion it’s almost shocking. The current way of self-promotion when seeking positions of power is to dig up as much dirt as possible, massage the truth a bit, and publicly disrespect rivals by rubbing shame in their faces via the media.
What would leadership that places the needs of others above one’s own (or one’s own tribe) even look like?
What if a political campaign was fought with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control?
What if honour was honoured?
I wonder. Could we handle true truth?
