I’ve seen lots of aggression, frustration, and confrontation today. I’ve seen it in my Facebook and Twitter feeds. I witnessed it in traffic and in a crowded grocery store.
Perhaps the reason it seemed extra noticeable today is because Donald Trump officially became the 45th President of the United States of America. It was the culmination of years of campaigning… much of it with a hostile tone.
Now that the election and inauguration are over I hope that we can all take a deep breath and move forward. That we can leave the nastiness behind us. That instead of focusing on the negative in others that we can look for the good in everyone.
As I reflect on the past few months and pray for our future, Ephesians 4:31-32 (NIV) seems like a great place to start.
