But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
No one likes to be picked on. Some people love to spend time making others unhappy. These people will have to answer to God for their actions. We are called to love one another and to look for ways to give one another encouragement. While the nasty people will answer in shame for their deeds, the kind will rejoice with Christ in heaven.
Prayer: Help me to shrug off the unkind words and actions of the people around me. Lift me above the hurts that come from unthinking and cruel people. Teach me to respond in love, no matter how I am treated. Amen.
Being “cruel or mean” for a believer does not require us to act out against someone. Our inaction’s when we see some else being cruel or mean and do not speak out or when we laugh at the expense at someones mistake or troubles. We are all subject to these temptations that is why Paul reminds us to “Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Mike
