The political conventions were really something! It seems the speakers love to use hyperbole to define their greatness and their opponents weaknesses. It’s easy to do. Have we not all exaggerated our strengths and magnified our neighbor’s weaknesses? Putting the best construction on what you hear about others requires a significant level of compassion and grace. Actually being humble about ourselves is not always either. So, we pray daily for a more Christ-like attitude. Our prayer is, “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had…” Rom 15:5 And pray for our leaders too!
