Let’s be kind with our words. It’s certainly not your ultimate responsibility in how a life turns out, but you’ll be one of the voices who echoes down the trajectory of condemnation or encouragement. If you’re a condemner, you’ll be the one they had to overcome or the one to which they eventually succumbed. If you encouraged, you were the hand reaching down through the swamp to lift up and out, the one bright spot who unlocked endless possibilities. I’m not about to join the same-sound choir of this condemning world. Even if it’s a tough word of rebuke, I’ll dare to love you all the way.
