Flashback Blog: Make Them Believers | 1/31/17

the only thing i'm sure of in this life is love...

“Superman can fly high way up in the sky, ‘Cause we believe he can, So what we choose to believe can always work out fine, It’s all in the mind… ” -Luther Vandross, Make Me A Believer (Busy Body 1983)

I believe a community that builds together, grows together. As I’m playing this lovely masterpiece by the late Luther Vandross, I feel a spirit of community with his poetic words. It empowers me to quote the scripture on love from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV):

"4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

Change the narrative of your community by truly loving them, make them believe in a positive lifestyle by being that positive motivating example in their lives. We choose to believe in a system of government each day. Trusting it to keep us safe from outside danger. Trusting our kids to be safe in public schools. Trusting that all will work out fine, why? Historically it hasn’t always worked, it’s failed. But we continue to believe. So how much more can we believe, when we turn our focus back into our community? Never give up on your brothers and sisters, love is the key, we must love first! Until next time, speak…easy.
