Truth is no less true just because it is not believed; but a lie believed has the power to destroy lives…and countries.
Countries are also destroyed when we let wrongs go unchecked; when there is no recompense for deception and broken laws. When we turn our heads and let evil stand…when we do not demand truth! God is a God of Justice…Jehovah Misphat…He loves justice; the foundation of His throne is justice and righteousness.
If it’s wrong, it’s wrong for everyone, not just for others.
Remember that oft-quoted scripture, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chron. 7:14)? We sometimes forget that we…Christians, His people…are who this scripture is directing to repent. We can’t look out the corner of our judgmental, narrowed eyes at others wishing they would repent. It starts with us.
And as a final thought…ugly things posted about the candidate of our choice will not change our minds. In fact, the negativity makes me dig my heels in deeper with my decision, how about you? I hope when the DNC is over, social media, news outlets and talk shows will stop fanning the flames by spinning everything the opposing party says and does. Maybe then my blog will get back to being lighter...and funnier.
I sure would like to see a nicer America.
Please Lord, let it start with Your children.
