what would the world be like if... - the view from her

What would the world be like if we actually...

...turned the other cheek? (Matthew 5:39)
...loved each other? (John 13:34)
...were not afraid? (John 14:27)
...were willing to be fools? (1 Corinthians 3:18)
...did everything in love? (1 Corinthians 16:14)
...overflowed with comfort? (2 Corinthians 1:5)
...lived a life of love? (Ephesians 5:2)
...submitted to each other? (Ephesians 5:21)
...considered others better than ourselves? (Philippians 2:3)
...did everything without complaining or arguing? (Philippians 2:14)
...were content in any and every situation? (Philippians 4:12)
...were not afraid to testify about our Lord? (2 Timothy 1:8)
...quit quarreling about words? (2 Timothy 2:14)
...saw to it that no one missed the grace of God? (Hebrews 12:15)
...were content with what we have? (Hebrews 13:5)
...were quick to listen and slow to speak? (James 1:19)

Thanks for the link, Bryon. I don't know if I manage any of these objectives (certainly not on my own!) but it's good to try and remember them.

I am going to use these questions at Toastmasters for the Table Topics. That means I pick around 5 questions and someone answers the question extemporaneously (did I spell that correctly?)

Thanks Papa for the good idea!
