The Argument

Have you ever been in a situation where no matter what you said someone else had something to say about it? For some reason I tend to be in the center of these types of conversations all the time, maybe because I’m an easy target, maybe because I’m willing to enter into them, maybe because I invite them. The how is less important than the why. I find it both exciting and interesting how the human soul desires to contend both through our physique and our intellect. It is as if there is something to be proved all the time. It would be an interesting social experiment if everyone on the planet practiced humility for 30 days. I wonder what the world would look like. Could we solve world hunger? Would people talk to each other with love and respect or would it be so difficult for some they wouldn’t speak at all? I’m going to throw out a challenge to anyone reading this; for 30 days would you join me and do your best to be humble? Try not to pick a fight, try not to be rude or disrespectful or proud. Lets see what our worlds will look like.
