Please stop being so offended when someone thinks differently than you do?
God makes things good.
The enemy tries to take good things and make them bad and destroy them.
God made us each different.
And this is how He decided to create us. He could have done things ANY way He wanted to, right? And He did it this way. So being different is okay. Having different opinions is okay.
It’s just one more thing satan tries to use to separate us from each other; to make us huff and puff and “unfriend” each other in person and online. The very differences we should appreciate about each other are the very things satan is using to create havoc.
God made you different from anyone else in the world for a reason and His plans for your life don’t exactly match anyone else’s purpose.
AND THAT’S OKAY.
Yet as is his nature, satan sees something good and does anything he can to make it bad. In this case he has grabbed onto the fact that we are each made different on purpose and given it a name. The name that fits right now is “Offended.” Oh my word are people offended!! SO easily! It makes me sad!
“I like cheese. So therefore YOU need to like cheese or else I won’t be friends with you. There! I’m not going to play with you anymore.”
Please stop it?!
Don’t you see what’s happening? That old devil is up to his tricks just like he always does trying to destroy sex, family, marriage, service, and just everything!
The world is in chaos and confusion. Literally.
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. He didn’t say there is some way or find the way.
He said HE IS THE WAY.
Keep your eyes on Him and don’t look away.
If you’re not sure how to find Him, ASK Him how to do this. “Jesus, how do I find You?” Just say it! Read the Bible. If you don’t have a Bible, buy one. If you can’t afford one, ask a friend to borrow his until you can get one. Ask church for one. If the church you ask says, “No,” then ask another church!
And it is okay with me if you don’t like cheese. I will still love you. I will still talk to you. I will still care about you.
Please, PLEASE find some grace and love for the people in your life!
