“Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to the man by whom the offense comes!”
We all can see that the world around us is offensive on so many levels, just look around, we can see and hear it everywhere! Jesus is saying the offensive, abusive and vulgarity must come. It’s part of the godless world around us, but we don’t need to get involved or be the creator of the offense!
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials.”
We will all fall or walk into various situations (trials); it happens! What we need to do is walk right back out of them and run to the LORD! Don’t get caught up in life’s drama.
“And Elijah came to all the people, and said, How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him. But the people answered him not a word.”
1 Kings 18:21
The same question goes for us today, do we choose to follow the LORD or follow the world? Don’t get caught up in the offensive drama of life, but instead get caught up in the joy giving life of the LORD! Have a blessed day!
