We turn on the news, and we see negative stuff happening, we look on the streets and see riots. We look all around us, and see fatherlessness, and broken homes…so what will you do about it? There are lots of complaints, yet there are the few that do something about it. Kinda reminds me of this video right here:
God is calling us to be Thermostats, not thermometers. A thermometer only tells how cold or hot things are, but a thermostat can change the temperature of the whole house – that’s what Christ is calling us to do. To be the ” salt of the earth” and keep folks from going down destructive paths.
I’m reminded of Jeremiah when God spoke to him saying, ” You must influence them; do not let them influence you” ( Jeremiah 15:19). He tells the young prophet that he will protect him ( v20 -21) and that he should turn away from worthless words ( v 19 ) .
It’s easy to get caught up in ” worthless words “, acting like everyone else, and adding to the problem instead coming up with a solution. But since Christ rose from the grave, we too can rise above our circumstances! #Beleave
Be who Christ calls you to be, and leave your past behind.
