the world is for lovers

we've heard it before. "why can't we all just get along?" well...why can't we? there's plenty of reasons i can think of, but all of them suck. sure, we can disagree with something someone says or does, but what right do we have to not love them? of course i'm not talking about the kind of love we feel for a significant other or a relative or a good friend...i simply mean love. plain and for others!

i came across this hilarious website while doing a little research on this post. does that make me a nerd? quite possibly. anyway...i think we can all take a few notes from it and maybe try to apply it to our lives.

for anyone who's intersted in a really cool Bible verse that i think really rocks this idea, check this out:

Galatians 5:13 (The Message)

13-15It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don't use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows. For everything we know about God's Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That's an act of true freedom. If you bite and ravage each other, watch out—in no time at all you will be annihilating each other, and where will your precious freedom be then?

i love you all...and promise to start showing it more!

p.s. i've been on a total tom petty kick lately.
