In the hands of the current and loud culture, lost is the freedom to disagree and still respect and love one another.
Look at our country right now, it has been turned upside down. Everyone has their own truth, and if you don’t agree with it, you are labeled as a bad person.
The media wants you to believe that the majority of American’s hate America and they are trying to force us to hate it too.
But what you may or may not see is this is an attack orchestrated by Satan!
Satan is a force of evil as great as you can ever imagine. A force determined to take everything from you.
Masquerading as the “new normal" parading around as acceptance and calling for anyone who disagrees to be silenced, shutdown, cancelled and even hurt.
He is working in and out of the lives we lead pretending to have our best interests in mind while shaping our future right before our very eyes.
Did you know that God warned us how this happens?
In fact, he warned us to be on our guard as Satan prowls around like a roaring lion. Did you catch that? He prowls around.
How many of you have a cat? Have you watched it lay low in the grass and sneak up on its prey, then at the right moment, he pounces! That is what the devil does to us - he pounces because we are standing idle, doing nothing.
We cannot afford to sit back and tolerate or accept that which is morally wrong.
Truth that is flawed and allow society to dictate out next steps. We cannot be afraid to lose business, relationships, or even our job, in the name of “well its just the way it is?”
No it isn’t. We need to not be idle and act.
What if we blessed someone by telling them the truth.
Telling them they matter, showing them that we are willing to put our money where our mouth is.
What if we took the money from a business that isn’t aligned with our values and supported one who does?
Could it be more expensive? Maybe. Maybe not.
Would it be an inconvenience for me? Perhaps. Perhaps not.
Would it hurt a relationship? Possibly. Possibly not.
All things we certainly would not like to have to happen, but doing the right things are often not the easiest. Yet, another trick the devil uses again and again to get his way.
But what if a small sacrifice to us, leads someone to a lifetime of truth, hope and love.
Now that’s a great possibility worth moving for.
In my experience God blesses those who sacrifice on his behalf. If we aren’t willing to sacrifice, be inconvenienced, speak up and act, then maybe we do hate America too.
P.S. May this encourage you in the choices you make and the actions you take.
