Our nation has become a war ground. Not so much from outsiders but from within. A spirit of hatred has consumed our people. President Trump has been a punching bag because he isn’t politically correct and at times is downright blunt. He has lied, made fun of folks and ticked people off. Now, as Jesus said when they brought the woman caught in the act of adultery, those of you who can say I’ve never done any of the above, go ahead and throw the first stone! You can’t, not one of us hasn’t done one of the above in our lifetime.
I have never seen a man so condemned on a daily basis. I know there are many of you who find pleasure in doing this. Are your words more important than that of Jesus?
First Timothy 2:1-2 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”
Are you praying for wisdom and guidance for our president or are you bashing him? If a person is beaten down all the time, that person will not excel in life. President Trump has been beaten to death because he is different. I am not denying he doesn’t go about things the way we are used to seeing a president do. At times he shocks us with his bluntness. But what we have seen in the past has gotten us nowhere.
Instead of fighting among ourselves, bend a knee and pray for guidance for our president. Life isn’t ever going to give us perfection in a human. Pray for him as hard as you slam him and see what God does. A wise man will take the lemons and make lemonade, a foolish man will toss the lemons out the door. Which are you?
Examine your words and actions. Look in the mirror and what do you see? Is the image you are showing the world any better than that of the president?
As the lord said, “If any among you are blameless, cast the first stone.”
I have sat back and watched the bickering and saw friends divided. Everyone has a right to their beliefs but don’t let beliefs destroy our nation and families. It’s time to make some lemonade and share it with a neighbor.
