Control or Injustice

1 Peter 2:23 While being reviled and insulted, He did not revile or insult in return; while suffering, He made no threats [of vengeance], but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges fairly.

I’m not going to type much about this subject but I am going to attach the link from church service yesterday morning.  I cried through most of it.  I’m sure that I’m not the only one who has been dealt a hand of injustices.  I’m also sure that I’m not the only one who has dealt the injustice out.  In the false sense of being in control we say and do things that are harmful to others, without even blinking an eye.  We want so badly to get what we want, have that sense of self security, find pleasure where it’s not ours to have and firm up our place in a certain position that we forget that there are other people around with needs and desires of their own.  We are also sometimes put in the position of receiving the injustices.  Those injustices may be minor in the scheme of life but some can be detrimental to the self worth of the other person.   Some injustices follow a person their entire life.

As you will hear in the attached sermon, a false sense of control and the injustices done always come with consequences.

Those consequences may be here on earth and then maybe not!

Esther 2:21-3:6

Romans 8:28

Philippians 3:10

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

We must live a life in a way that we show love to others and sometimes that means taking ourselves out of the equation.

Lord, thank you for being my protector and defender.  I honestly don’t know where I would be Lord if I had never been told about you.  Daily I am thankful!  Please help me walk a life each day being aware of the hearts of others, the needs of others and the hurts of others.   Help me stop before I speak, think before I act and pray before I judge.  I pray Lord for those that also find it hard to not jump into control mode before looking to You for direction.  I love you and thank You for always being my best guide. Amen!
