Be Good to People

‘Be good to people.’
– Joyce Meyer

Simple, right? Well yes and no.

It’s a very basic command of course. Unfortunately it’s one that doesn’t get followed enough.

Talking about people behind their backs, not helping someone who needs it, doing things only for ourselves, passing judgment on others…there all all kinds of ways we fall short of living up to this.

But then again we are just humans. We’re not perfect. But Jesus was, and is, and He forgives us when we ask for it. Anyone else thankful for that? I know I am.

So just take a minute and remember that we are all brothers and sisters on this Earth and in the process, let’s all remember to be good to people 🙂

Have a great day.

Be Good to People – Colleen Ritzer’s Legacy

Be Good to People

For those of you who may not follow the news, Colleen Ritzer is the 24-year-old Danvers, Massachusetts high school teacher who was killed earlier this week – allegedly by a 14-year-old student.

She posted this tweet a few months ago and from looking at the others posted on her Twitter account, it is very apparent she was a person who loved teaching math, loved her students, and loved life.

Folks, you just never know when your number is going to be called. Our time here on Earth is fleeting. I would just encourage everyone to follow Colleen’s advice in the way you live your life.

Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind. Colleen, you did just that. Rest in Peace.
