Worth A Go?

We Leave A Mark,
How We Live Determines What Kind of Mark,
Fleeing and Best Forgotten
Blesses and Remembered.
So the Lord kept watch over this calamity until he brought it upon us. Indeed, the Lord our God is right in all that he has done; for we have disobeyed his voice.
… it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies the one who has faith in Jesus.
Words of Grace For Today
If one sees the fires, floods, droughts, earthquakes, rising oceans, melting polar caps, sinking foundation through the not-so-permafrost, violent storms and winds, tornadoes and hurricanes, as God’s answer for our collective sins, then certainly one cannot claim that we do not deserve them and even more.
These symptoms of climate change are consequences of sins, sins of excess and privilege far too many of us have enjoyed much too much as others struggle just to survive.
God though is not like us, tit for tat, revenge and Rache, an eye or more for an eye! God is loving, gracious, forgiving, and life-giving (if we want to live as God created us to live).
So it is each day, instead of seeing calamities great and small as God’s answer to our sins, we can confess our sins and make right (as right as we can) what our sins have cost others (and ourselves), and change – yes it’s nearly impossible but God made us able to change or we’d have been extinct long ago – and change not just our clothes but our hearts, minds, and souls.
What to change to?
See Jesus’ grace, healing, teaching, and love?
Try that as starters
and main meal.
No desserts, though until the next life, and then what a feast!
Worth a go, eh?
