I am not depressed, but I am sorrowful because of all the hate and contention and killing that is going on today. I found myself crying hard when praying to God the other day, asking Him to guide us and for all of His children to grow in love and the Fruits of the Spirit. When will the world stop using Christ as a crutch, professing to be a Christian while, yet, hating someone or some group or some race or some party of association, etc.It seems too many people are rooted in greed, in power, in hate, in clicks, in status, and/or in so many other inconsequential things. We have got to put God and His teachings first. I ask you, my heart, in the name of Jesus to strengthen me and give me courage to try to do that which in right in God’s sight: to hate no one; to judge no one; to try to do something for the less fortunate; to read the Scriptures; to try to respect all people and to pray to and honor God daily. I ask God that I may never be rooted in any of the (seven)things He hates. Let us all examine our hearts constantly for God is.
