When there is a turmoil and upheavel in a location, God’s children should leave the place immediately. The world may call this as cowardness.It is another way of managing the situation. A hero need not always stand in front line, as wrongly depicted in cinema .
Our divine Master (Jesus) didn’t want to die at that spot -because it was not our Heavenly Father’s appointed time for crucification.When there was a much precious need to shed His Holy Blood in the cross, He didn’t want to die early. Hence,Jesus was hidden and went out. (John 8:59).The Lord who created the universe (Jesus) was meaningfully handling the situation.
Emotion and emotion based action may make a man take wrong decision. Idle mind is devil’s work shop.Youths with immense energy at times feel difficult with out any work in lock down period. We have seen such people going against curfew and got punished by Police.
We have to learn how to control our “spirit “.Like a city whose walls are broken is a man who has no control over his spirit (Proverbs 25:28).Surely the meek alone will inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5).
Emotions always will mislead us.In the guise of patriotism, we should not develop hatred over our “enemy” country. Love one another. It’s God’s typical fruit and major commandment.
At times, when wrong thing happen, just like Elisha we should not ask God to send Bear to destroy the erring persons.That may be Old Testament “spirit ” which our Lord Jesus didn’t like.Jesus rebuked His disciples and told, “Beware of what spirit you have “.Jesus projected only the spirit of love .In the cross also Jesus prayed to His Heavenly Father to forgive the people who killed Him.
Love your “enemies”. If two hands dash against each other, sound is produced .If you withdraw one of your hands’ support, there won’t be out break of turmoil. Satan will be defeated. Satan alone should be our only enemy .
Forgive each other ‘seventy times seven times'(490 times/unlimited times).(Matthew 18:22).The Lord’s Prayer also tells us, “Forgive us our trespasses,as we forgive those who trespass against us “.
Every plant not planted by my Heavenly Father will be pulled up by the roots.(Matthew 15:13).You will know them by their fruits (Matthew 7:16). Guard your heart with all diligence,for from it flow “SPRINGS OF LIFE”(Proverb 4:23), and not at all riots and blood shed.
Amen and Amen.
