What? No complaining or Arguing?

“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:14-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We had a great message last night from our National Evangelist,  Jay Wilbur, at our CMA "Bikers for Change Rally". It struck me that I need to be different than the world? Am I? Some one you can verify that I am different! LOL! But, does my life portray a life that Christ wants me to display? Sadly that doesn't always happen for me. I get wrapped up in the things of this world. I argue with those that disagree with me. I complain about too many things and too many people. During the political craziness of last fall I created too many enemies by my posts and editorial comments. That is not what I'm about. 

Statement of fact: I love you dearly even if we might not agree on everything or, actually, if we don't agree on anything. 

That includes family and friends. I don't hate anyone. But isn't it just like hate when I don't show them any love. If being a Christian is about loving your neighbor, is it ok just to ignore them? Is that love? What would Jesus say about that?
