Ever made a bad decision in life that brought you down to your lowest? Haven’t we all? Have you ever felt judged by others for doing so? Or have judged others( intentionally and unintentionally)? How did it make you feel? I don’t know about you, it’s no fun. It makes me feel even worse. We all have our lessons to learn. We are human, we will make mistakes and bad choices. But it is what we do with them that matters. That will be what tells what is in our hearts. But some of us are weak, that doesn’t make us bad. It just means we need some help, some guidance, love,mercy and grace. Even those who are stronger needs that. God knows His children, through and through and if we let Him, He will give us the strength when we are weak. Sometimes, He sends others into our lives to strengthen us, to help guide us. There is no mistake so great that God can’t forgive. When He forgives, He truly forgives. He doesn’t remind you. He is not sitting on His throne judging you, telling the angels what you have done or what others ( including the media) say you have done.
So, how do we treat others? Lord knows I have been guilty and have repented.God pointed these things out in me and I didn’t like what I saw. Everyone is human,we all fall short.(Romans 3:23) And when we point out what others have done, be it you,me, our President, actors/actresses, musicians etc,even our Pastors, when we point out their wrongs, we make ourselves look bad and sound bad. It shows we have no self respect or control. The tongue is a deadly weapon. For one, it is none of our business whatsoever, what these people do. It is absolutely none of my business what my neighbors do. I am responsible for my own actions. That being said, we are our brother’s/ sisters keeper. It is our business to build them up. We are all brothers and sisters, not just blood. To edify each other, not an alarm bell to their mistakes or sins etc. I would not want that done to me. It is hurtful to yourself, me and everyone around you,including those who read the posts or comments on social media. This country needs to come together as a whole and take care of each other as a family.
Here’s something else for us tto be chewing on, if you are a soldier ( whether it be marine, army,navy,air force etc,all have the same goal in the end) and you have spent your life fighting for this country, how would it feel to you to finally come home,barely making it alive, to find your country fighting against each other and tearing each other down? It would make me feel like I have wasted my time putting my life at risk for nothing. I will say it, our soldiers do not go overseas just for some land. If that were the case, they would get them some land of their own and say the heck with it. No, its for us, so we can have our freedom. Their families are sacrificing the same. There’s something to think about.
And y’all, we can’t believe everything that the social media of any form says about another, or our government, President or anyone else. Even the most reliable sources can be mistaken. My rule of thumb, if i wasnt there, i have no clue, its none of my business unless they tell me. It doesn’t matter to me what this singer,or actor has done. It does matter some what decisions the President makes when it affects us, but if I disagree, complaining, or tearing him down, being a drama queen ain’t gonna solve anything. But prayer will. It is our jib to lray for our President and soldiers and everyone around us. God is the Solution. And that I will keep in mind when the flesh starts to creep up, Look in the mirror.
And by the way, do please support our soldiers, whether it be in prayer, however. They may not admit it, they need us. They need our love,prayers and support. Once a soldier always a soldier.
