Keep telling the truth.
Keep admitting your mistakes.
Keep choosing curiosity over judgment.
Keep defaulting to empathy.
This may all feel like a dead end in an era when so much untruth is celebrated and when hubris is lionized, when takedowns and trolling have become such precious currency. But the alternative is a deader dead end.
Jesus said you’re the salt of the earth, and he warned that the unsalty salt gets trampled under foot. Yes, and the salty salt gets trampled sometimes too.
