It is very easy to speak out against what we see, but in true love that is directed by God we are to stand in faith while sharing the love of Jesus Christ. God shows us what is not right by Him in others to help shape us into who He wants us to be.
As we mature and learn to trust in God it is our duty as a true Christian to stand fast in love with patience for God to correct what needs to be corrected. It is when we take matters into our own hands that we can cause a division in our relationships to the point that they cause anger and even divorce. Rather than focusing on what is negative in the picture we should be looking for the positives to help us learn to overcome the negatives.
Many divisions in the church and in our homes have developed from a lack of understanding the true meaning of a commitment under God that teaches us to work together through our trials to build something stronger for our children’s future. What are we teaching our children when we don’t work together and when all we do is point out what is wrong in others?
In order for our children to understand a commitment under God we must be an example in our commitments to properly teach them how to work through the hard times to reach the good times. By separating ourselves and blaming one another for our shortcomings it only teaches our children to place blame on someone else rather than taking responsibility for their own actions.
Real change comes when we commit ourselves in prayer for God to bring things together rather than trying to fix it ourselves. So many times we get in the way because we interfere with how God is working to correct what we see. It should be our goal to work on ourselves and allow the light that we carry to help someone else to see the proper way to believe. Rather than taking matters into your own hands and possibly causing a division or even a divorce learn to trust in God while communicating in the love of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter where we go or who we meet there is always something that can be done but it is our place to focus on the positives rather speaking out on the negatives…amen
