For Real?

May 6, 2014

There are so many things taking place in our Country while we sit quiet. It took a remark from Donald Sterling to awake this Country. Church properties are being sold, children are being murdered, starvation in the land, homeless increasing, guns allowed in church buildings, children being kidnapped, murderers found “not guilty”, people devastated and losing their life as a result from hurricanes, flooding or tornadoes but people were awaken to the remarks one man.

How can we allow one man to “shake our faith”? Sticks and stones may break our bones but words will never hurt. In the past, certain people were racially profiled in public. Nothing has changed except people have become wicked and the gap between “man and God” has broadened.  Whatever is in the heart will surface. We can try to hide it, cover it, and camouflage it. Hate, racism and bigotry is real. God and “LOVE” is real.

Don’t let hate destroy your walk with God. We should be placing our focus on the “real problems” in the world.  Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body.  Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.   But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. (James 3:3-4, 8)

Don’t worry about Sterling statement. There are many like him. We are to love and pray for them. The Apostle Paul warns us: “Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!  For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. (Philippians 3:2-3)  Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:5)

I don’t try and belittle Sterling statement, nor do I give it a second thought. Since Sterling is not doing anything for me, why would I let his words hurt me? My goal is to please God and not Sterling. Sterling did not save a wretch like me, forgave my sins or healed my body.
