I am venting in this post.
Hello Bat Brats,
I am not feeling well today but I am doing my best. I have been thinking about something that has been weighing on my mind. I thought I should share on my blog.
I recently heard about a killing in my hometown. A couple was shot down in their home. I believe the women survived and two children. What makes me upset about it is some people try to justify what happened by saying, at least the children art alive. As if a child’s life means more than an adult’s. I disagree full heartedly, all life is equally valuable. Does the Bible teach us one life is more valuable than another? No it teaches us not to judge others and to love others. So by people saying a child’s life is worth more than a dad or mom’s life they are judging. How does it make it right that a father died? Someone shot him inside his home. How can people justify it and be okay with it? It is very sick to think that the person who killed the father did a good thing by not killing the children. They still murdered someone. I am sickened by how people think like they do. Also just because you love someone doesn’t mean they can do no wrong or can’t be a bad person. This kind of thinking is bad for our society because how can we protect ourselves from bad people if we can’t see past our feelings? Logically anyone is capable of doing bad, evil things. It is in our nature to be sinners.
What The Bible Says About Judging Others:
31 Do to others as you would have them do to you. 32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Even if you don’t believe in God or the Bible this is still a very good lesson. How does your judgement make someone else’s choices good or bad? When you are not being fair if you think they can do no wrong just because you care about them. You can’t change someone else nor is it any of your business what your neighbor does. You are wasting your life by judging others. There is so much you are missing because you don’t take notice of yourself when you are too busy judging someone. Why worry about something you have no control of? Stop rubbernecking and start paying attention to other things that are more important to your own life. Like your family, pets, health, exc. I pray for you all as well as myself for health, happiness, and knowledge to understand right from wrong. Aman!
