Have you ever done a favor for a friend or a relative and not received a favor in return? Does this make you feel wrong? Does it make you feel angry? Maybe you feel betrayed? Well if you do feel this way you are not alone. There are many people out there who do favors, but do not expect anything in return. They do however hope for kindness from friends and families that they always help and support. Should we show kindness and hope for kind acts in return? Maybe we should set a common ground for acts of kindness to get kindness back?
Be Kind One To Another
I have always wondered why so many people were so mean. Why cannot everyone return kindness with kindness. The Holy Bible, God, tells us we should be kind on to another, forgive one another, because God has forgiven us. Why is it so hard to forgive a person who has made a mistake? In the previous years I have studied and have been educated in The Holy Bible and Life. The Bible sometimes make life seem so simple, but growing up from a child to teen years, and then to adulthood can be complicated. Life does not always go as we plan it. When things go downhill we need support from family and friends.
Family and friends need to stand by each other’s side. We all need support in life. We all have good times and hard times, but does everyone have someone by their side? Well unfortunately I have to say, “No!”. Today there are so many. According to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, an American dies every 12.95 minutes. They also tell us that every woman that committs suicide four men do as well, although 3x as many women attempt suicide. There are more than 1.5 million years of life lost every year due to suicide.
You may not be religious, but we all should have morals. If you are a moral person you are, . I hope this is you. I know my baseline is moral, but there are times I stray away and make wrong, immoral decisions. We are all human and we all make mistakes. The good thing about being moral you can look back on the mistakes you have made and learn, and then improve yourself. This is good for yourself, your family, and business.
Do I Have The Right To Get Back At One Who Hurts Or Offends Me?
When it comes to getting back at the jerk in your life, do you think you have the right to get even? Well I use too when I was a child. My dad talked to me about laws. He told me, “It Does not matter if you are the offender or the offended one cannot commit a crime like assault.” I did not agree and fully understand when I was a child. When I went to a Christian School I learned about how to get even. You ask God! Psalms 68:18-20 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.- Psalms 68: 19
Today I have learned that God takes our burdens and He gets even for us as well. I will give you a high school story. When i was in Junior High School I was being threatened by a classmate. It got so bad I transferred to a different school, private school. I left all my friends, my teachers, and times I loved in school. In about three years we were classmates again. He got kicked out of school and had to go to summer school. When my friends found out he was coming they had a talk with him. He changed, he was spoken to by Christ, he now decided to become a morale person that is what my friends told me. I was in doubt, but open minded, everyone changes one way or another, The first day of school came and we met again for the first time. I was shocked he was nice, complimenting, encouraging, fun to be around, and funny. I wish we were friends longer because he was pretty cool. The last year I was at the school I left I said a lot of prayers of the jerks being cool with me. I have met almost all the jerks from school since then and now they are pretty cool. we all change, but having God as our Light in the Darkness gives us Hope.
Life is hard. Always remember God has plans for us in the afterlife. He will give us rewards in Heaven. Are you Saved? Have you strayed from Christ? Say a prayer. Here is what I said to God when I got saved, “God, I love you, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I am sorry for all the sins I have committed in my life, please forgive me. I offer you my soul and my spirit for Salvation. I look forward to the day we meet in the many years to come. Thank -You God for my Salvation. Amen” After I said this prayer I felt the Spirit inside me, I knew I was saved. I have fallen back in my life and have said almost the same prayer, but asked for forgiveness. If you have any questions, especially about Salvation leave a response and I will help you. God Bless You All.
