It’s Good Friday – the day to reflect upon Christ’s crucifixion.
I have many friends who aren’t persons of any faith or that have differing interpretations of and beliefs in the Supreme Creator. Those who are wise have the full conviction of their faith without arrogance in claiming to have all the answers or the “right” way. Indeed, there are many paths up the same mountain.
What we all can take from the life and death of Christ, regardless of our belief in the divine story, is that he lay down his life for others.
We can draw inspiration from his example. We can choose to put others first; be kind-spirited; be non-judgmental; overlook the shortcomings we perceive in others and treat them as we treat ourselves; make our short life-span be about “we, not me.”
