It seems the world is well and truly going to shit. Scripture says in Revelation and Ezekiel that basically in the end days the world is going to get bad, and it seems that is true. There are so many good people out there trying to help, trying to encourage and trying to do their best in some pretty crappy situations and then there are those who just wait for the opportunity to crap all over you.
There are always those who will tear down churches because they hate religious people and yet in a crisis that’s where they turn, there are always people who are ready to tear down others because they are successful, or they look a certain way or they have a bigger house, or whatever, there will always be someone there waiting, like a crouching tiger, ready to pounce and devour you just for being you. You can’t even eat what you want these days, there is some crazy person or group of crazy people, ready to get all up in your face about YOUR own choices. There is always someone there to bring you down, discourage, disown, discredit and dismantle you. Those that do good, aren’t doing good enough, those who give aren’t giving enough and those who help aren’t helping enough. These people who lie in wait to attack you lack judgement, character and just plain decency.
Scripture says to love on these people, pray for them and bless them and God will take care of the rest. But I find that very hard to do sometimes and then what happens to me? I am displaying the same behaviors. Make sure that out of your will to do good and defend those who are being attacked that you don’t become one of them yourself. Always be kind, show grace and DON’T BE THAT PERSON!
