More Like KLOVE

Why can’t we be more like KLOVE?

Not that I think we need to play Third Day and Casting Crowns all day. Not that I would mind either of those bands. In fact some days I may even play more of Third Days music than KLOVE does.

I also don’t think that we need to sing “Better Than A Hallelujah” ever two hours throughout the day. Granted since I started thinking about this post I have been.

If you listen to KLOVE for more than 15 minutes you’re likely to hear “Positive, encouraging K-AY LOOOOOOOOOVE.

So many times we are not careful about the words that come out of our mouths.

Ephesians 4:29 tells us: “ Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”

I can be prone to joking and picking on people. I’ve tried to get better recently. It is easy to pick on people thinking it is funny and never thinking about what they might feel because of what we’ve said.

Is being funny or clever worth hurting people’s feelings?

When is the last time you stopped and thought about how others might feel when you are funny?

As a youth leader does making fun of homeschoolers show the love of Jesus to those who are watching?

One thought on “More Like KLOVE

  1. I think the pertinent words are “…to those who are watching.” When there are people around who are outside the core group-be it youth or any other, including family-we need to act differently. It also depends on the dynamic of your core group. If those who always hang out together are a little sarcastic, but completely understand that attitude, I think it’s okay to act that way. However, if someone is around who does not always hang out with you, the words and attitudes have to change. That person will not understand the difference between goofing off and making fun. Paul says we need to conduct ourselves in such a way so as never to offend anyone. Even in our everyday dealings with those in our core group, we need to be sensitive to attitude changes. What is said teasingly-and taken that way-one day may hurt that same someone’s feelings on another day. Relationships aren’t easy, but they’re worth watching our mouths and attitudes for.
