Come On, Christians!

A local merchant used to purchase space in our newspaper to voice his concerns about what he perceived to be a decline in patriotism. He always ended each brief article with the appeal, “Come on, America, we can do better than that.”

Facebook has put me in touch with many friends. Some are young; some are about my age (not as young as we used to be). Some are Christians; some are not yet Christians. I enjoy getting updates from all my Facebook friends, but some updates by a few of my Christian friends concern me. Occasionally the language is crude or vitriolic and contains swear words. At the risk of offending those friends, let me point out what they already know: Christians should honor the Lord by their words as well as by their actions. We are called to a higher standard than our non-Christian contemporaries.

So, come on, Christians, we can do better!
