Thank you so much for such an inspired, candid conversation about bullying the last couple of days. Lots of great stories were shared, and I don’t thank you often enough. Thank you for making this blog what it is with your insights and candor.

For whatever reason, Jesus said a lot of things that we just don’t take seriously. Maybe we think Jesus was speaking figuratively, or with hyperbole. Or he just wasn’t talking to us. Or he’s just full of it. Whatever the reason, there’s a whole lot of red words that might as well be changed back to black.
Here are my favorite words and teachings of Jesus to flat out ignore.
