The actions of others affects us all. Over and over the me syndrome takes its toll and harms the we. Why does this cycle continue? Why haven’t we learned from the past?
As you think about this, I’m sure your answer isn’t limited to one event or situation. Whether it’s personal, state, national or global, the decisions made by others affects our lives.
Recently, a little closer to home, a small group of parents and teens took action against one person, a person who gave of themself to benefit others. As the story unfolds, those that ousted this person had their own personal agenda to attack and harm; their goal achieved.
In the wake of their destructive ways, there are numerous casualties. Those that are wounded without knowing why they’ve become a victim at the hands of others. Sadly a new war rages as fingers point, insults fly and blame is placed by so many; most are reeling from the initial attack orchestrated in secret by the few.
Ephesians 6:11: Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
