There are things going on in our world today that could cause us the nervousness of a long-tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
I’m wondering why leaders of our powerful and respected countries take to “twitter and tweets” to draw attention to the undesired policies of their world counterparts instead of going through diplomatic channels. I’m wondering what is the world coming to.
More and more we are seeing and hearing of governments trying to clean up their counterparts’ policies by “tweeting” it out for all the world to see, before concentrating on their own homeland issues.
I’m wondering why they are eager to see another’s faults without addressing the fact that there may be something lacking in their own agendas. It’s a good thing to defend human rights and all the other issues that assail us on a daily basis, no matter what part of the world we inhabit, but I wonder if there is not a proper way to address them.
Perhaps all leaders might want to look to their own infallibility and consider the course of action that would be beneficial to all concerned, and process it through proper channels, after some sincere soul searching.
Scripture speaks of this beautifully:
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? Matthew 7:3,4 NIV
