It’s a “cultural” phrase you hear all the time: “Live and let live!”
Problem is—it’s a maxim that doesn’t work!
“Live and let live” isn’t a biblical principle—that why it doesn’t work!
David said in bringing his sacrifice to God, “How can I bring you a sacrifice for which there is no cost?”
If you have good things but you didn’t sacrifice to get them, you’re merely standing on the sacrifices of others.
In other words, what you enjoy in this nation you enjoy because other people did not have a “live and let live” philosophy.
Quite the contrary! They had a “give-my-life-away-to-others” philosophy.
And they and everyone else were the better for it.
Narcissism never works. Self-centeredness destroys families, organizations, schools, nations.
Don’t live and let live. How about “live and help others have life!”
