MASKS: Act like Christians

| December 4, 2020 1:00 AM

“All things therefore whatsoever you would that man would do to you, do you also to them.” (Matthew 7:12)

It’s the golden rule. We teach it to our children. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

We are in the midst of a horrible, temporary plague that is randomly striking, sickening and killing people. Mask wearing is a simple deterrent to the virus. It’s shown to help. Not only can it help keep cases down, but it can help keep businesses and workplaces and schools stay open safely. It’s a win-win!

People who think it’s an affront to their freedom are showing that they care more for themselves than for the community they are part of. It’s adolescent and selfish behavior. I’d even say it’s Unchristian. God is watching!
