Anger, Hatred & Name Calling Only Hurts YOU

I am saddened by all of the anger and animosity I see being spewed around the internet.  I think the worst part is that these angry, hurtful, nasty things are being spread by so-called Christians.  Do we need to be aware of what’s going on in the world?  Yes.  Do we need to post horrible name calling nastiness about someone who we THINK isn’t doing a good job?  ABSOLUTELY NOT!!  My God teaches me to love my enemies.  My God teaches me that no matter what happens, I am His child and I will be OK.

It saddens me to see people claiming to be a child of God and then getting all caught up in name calling and rumor spreading.  It saddens me to see people claiming to be a child of God and then harboring such animosity for others that they are probably making themselves sick.   Then they use God as an excuse.  “Well…I felt God led me to speak up because if I don’t no one will.”  I’m sorry, but God would NEVER lead you to name calling and spreading rumors.  God would not tell you to be nasty toward another human being.  That is not how He works.  If you are a believer in the bible and our creator, you know that you will always be protected and OK.

I really don’t want to make this a religious post.  It’s more of an awareness post to let those who are being nasty and calling names to others that it will only end up hurting you in the long run.  We will never agree 100% with everyone. Just because someone does something you do not like does not mean you have to let it control your life. Anger and hatred will destroy YOU if you hold on to them. They don’t hurt the other person, they hurt you.

    Hey Roxxstarr

    And I thought your headline was directed at your first week of not smoking. And all the things that can come from it.

    Best of success in your venture.

    Have a great weekend.

    LOL Gary!!! You’re right though. These things can all come from not smoking. I’m doing pretty good at cutting down. Even though I’ve not quit completely, I’m making great progress I think.

    Have a great weekend yourself. :-)
