Manic Monday – Be Nice
Hey there this is Pastor Brad with another Manic Monday. I have been awaiting the show “Song Land” on NBC for a month or two. Well it’s finally here and I love it. The show has amateur song writers come in and pitch their song to a featured artist that week. This past week Will.I.Am from the Blacked Eyed Peas was the featured artist. He chose a song called “Be Nice” by Adam Friedman. The hook of the song is “Be different, Be nice.”
It got me thinking why is it so difficult for people to just be nice to one another. Regardless of race or religion just be nice. The world is filled with hate. These days if you are genuinely nice you stand out from the crowd. You are different. Even as Christians we aren’t always nice. We should be, but we aren’t. I can have a bad moment, or I can even have a bad day. I can say when I’m not nice the Spirit of God convicts me. Unfortunately church people can be some of the rudest, most hateful people to others. If that is you or I on a consistent basis then shame on you. Shame on me. We are to model our behavior after Jesus is we call ourselves Christians. After all we are following Jesus. So how about be different; be nice.
