It is no secret that I am a Christian. I always want to be more like Jesus, however, many days I simply fail. But when we fall, we get back up.
Plenty of times, I have not displayed the best of behaviors. Oh darn that humanity! I am a very blunt person, sometimes to a flaw, but I am working on it.
It’s funny to me, most of the occasions that I have been accused of not being a Christian is when I was calling out someone’s bad behavior. They want to say, “well Jesus wouldn’t do such and such”. But, being Christ-like, doesn’t mean getting walked on.
I have also heard people say, “well Jesus said to turn the other cheek”.The issue here is when the Bible is taken out of context. Yes Jesus did say that, but he was teaching about revenge and the attitude behind it.
It’s a heart issue. Jesus said in Luke 6 that what you say, flows from what is in your heart.
People want to fuss about gun control and I have heard everything. But even still, the guns aren’t the problem. A gun is nothing more than a tool, just like a hammer.
A hammer can’t jump up, swing, and smash your hand. However, if you don’t have a good grip on it, you might just miss the nail.
What is in the depths of your heart?
