"Part of the problem with the word disabilities is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These it seems to me, are the real disabilities." --Fred Rogers
I love this quote. When I think of Jesus, I think of how He came and turned accepted "truth" on its head. He was the exact representation of God (Hebrews 1) and behaved in almost a completely opposite way from the religious, world system. He surprised everyone, and many could not accept the differences.
What does our world system value?
Physical ability (our pro sports encompass the first three!).
You fill in the blanks!
I think we could add Mr. Roger's to the list: healthy emotional lives, fulfilled, joyful, loving lives...
How about some more from you...
