Five Minute Friday: Way

It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with a group of writers. We receive a one-word prompt and get to write for five minutes. Our word for this week is WAY.


I looked up the word WAY in the online dictionary. One of the meanings listed was 'a method, style, or manner of doing something,' 'a person's characteristic or habitual manner of behavior or expression.'

A question that came to my mind was this.

What is the way to live a life of love in the midst of a world filled with hatred, anger, and impatience?

  • A driver cuts me off in traffic and speeds off.   
  • A woman is cursing and angrily scolding an airline employee in a crowded terminal.
  • A talk show guest is shut down and the interview ended because her views were contrary to that of the host.
What is the way to live in this craziness?

Here are my thoughts as a Christian:

  • Keep an eternal perspective. After all, God is sovereign and in control. 
  • Pray about everything.
  • Spend time in the Word every day.
  • Look at people with God's eyes of love.
  • Respect people even if they have a different viewpoint from yourself.


Blessings and love,
