Thank God for assorted flavors! This would be a boring world if we were all cut from the same cookie cutter. Only a narrow-minded narcissistic personality would think otherwise. Hopefully, one who thinks like that will come to realize that type of egoistical thinking would trap them in their own ignorance. It’s through our diversity that we receive knowledge and strength; therefore, we must embrace all the rich culture and experiences that we each bring to the table of life.
No one owns the rights to this WORLD.
During all the uproar the world is facing today, do you think God is sending us a strong message that we are to respectfully come together and work these problems out while His mercy is being offered? Is that why our problems will take universal solutions?
We can’t expect to live in the promises of God when we disregard, mistreat, and ignore one another. Those are barriers built in the chambers of hell to clog our channels of communication with the Holy Spirit. Many times, we haven’t received answers to our prayers because we aren’t willing to meet the criteria attached to God’s promises. No matter how much faith we try to generate, we can’t discount the love factor. (See Galatians 5:6.)
When will we learn to care and respect each other?
- When will we kinda, sorta get it that we can’t be in right standing with God while promulgating hate toward another human being? Jesus told us to love one another; guess who’s telling us to hate one another? I’ll just leave that right there.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another (John 13:34-35).
- When will we kinda, sorta get it that we need the cooperation and help from one another in order to combat COVID-19? However, instead of working cooperatively, many have allowed themselves to be overcome by hatred, selfishness, pride, and defiance—principalities and rulers of darkness.
Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his own interest, but also each for the interests of others (Philippians 2:4, AMP).
- When will we kinda, sorta get it that we are to look out for those who are in need? Throughout biblical history, it is recorded how God retaliated mightily when injustice was done to the least of His people. God is the same today as He was then; He hasn’t changed. (See Malachi 3:6; Isaiah 40:8; Hebrews 13:8.)
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? (1 John 3:17, NIV)
- When will we kinda, sorta get it that God alone is LORD? Nevertheless, man with all his vain glory is trying to push God out of everything and promote himself as the god over this world. King Nebuchadnezzar was the greatest Babylonian king before pride brought him down; as a result, he ended up groping around in the fields like an animal. (See Daniel 4.) God’s wrath isn’t to be taken lightly.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me (Exodus 20:3). I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images (Isaiah 42:8).
All that’s happening now should make us wonder:
When will we kinda, sorta get it through our thick heads . . .?
See you next week on Paulette Talks Faith.
