When people don't treat people like they should. When people vent angers from one situation on innocent bystanders. And when people just say it without giving others a chance to defend themselves.
Lord, please help me to understand. Please.
Thank you Sarah for your concern! =)
It's amazing, isn't it? I did my quiet time last night asking God the same questions, and he gave me this verse:
"For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace" -Romans 8:6
Then He asked me, "why do you look at the flaws of the flesh, rather than the Spirit of man in God?"
Oh right. *sheepish smile*. When I think about it, that verse did apply to the situation. Wow.
Then He went on to say, "Don't judge and condemn, but instead, be an example for others to see; most of all, do not be disobedient, honour ____". True that, if I continued to harp on the problem with people, I probably drag my own spirit down further. If my own spirit is down, how can I go on shining for God? I'd probably have few streaks of light coming out but everything blocked by a temporary stronghold over my life. BAD. Cannot cannot!
How powerful is the Word of God, that through one simple verse God can reveal so many things to Me. I feel so much happier now!
Although I have serious muscle ache now >.< My dear Hip Hop I class yesterday could've easily passed off as Hip Hop Intermediate; and of course after teaching choreography at church - OUCH.
