Thought for the Day

People who feel powerless criticize to feel powerful. If they can crush your ego, reputation, and spirit with their words, they feel somehow they are significant–at least more significant than you.

Better to build together than destroy.

  1. I thought about your wise words as I listened to the debates . . . it seems to be applicable to more than just individuals, but also a reflection on our entire society. I think that all of us collectively are feeling powerless and overwhelmed by the world these days. Even those who are supposedly powerful and influential feel this way, and lash out and criticize and call names.

    I pray that we will learn to build together, as persons and as a people.
