LOVE

"Most of all, Let LOVE guide your life" Colossians 3:14 Last night the news here in Seattle was covered with violent demonstrators that littered the streets for the "May Day" occupy protest. To me it seemed they were just filled with the energy of being "active" but for what? They were active alright! But their activism was just plain ole silly stupid active. It was just your average run of the muck active. Not one person on the news last night who was quoted as being a protester or and activist had anything intelligent to say. The only people making sense were the victims who said, "This just doesn't make sense, now we will all be late for our jobs tomorrow, have to close up shops that provide jobs, and have to clean up this mess."
I'm all for making a stand, speaking up, and speaking out, but first of all if you are going to the streets with a message you want the world to listen to, then know what it is you want the world to hear. All I heard and saw yesterday was violence. And violence never accomplishes anything.
So today I read these simple, but very true words and it made me think and pause. "Most of all, Let LOVE guide your life" Colossians 3:14 SELAH
The word SELAH means to pause and think about that, or meditate on this. So that's what I'm doing. Stopping here today. Simple. True. And what the world needs now. LOVE sweet LOVE.

I feel the same way. It was all over the Bay Area in CA. What a great way to waste more money ... Tax payers money and put our states (well at least mine) in more debt. If they really feel passionate about what they say they are standing up for, it should be done with love... Or at least respect.

@irishtwins- yeah it's gotta be really frustrating for the people who would really like to get a msg out there, to be over taken by just an angry, ignorant mob.
