Bad things happen and when they do you're going to have decisions to make.
You can choose several different venues but to be perfectly honest, there's only going to be one "right" choice...
So be prepared to stand tall or fall.
Herewith...the following quiz:
1. Someone steals your kid's bike: (You know who this person is.) What do you do?
A. Beat the suspects brains out.
B. Do what you can and trust God. (If a man steals your coat, give him your cloak as well.)
C. Slap your kid because you've told him a million times to lock his bike up.
2. You unintentionally hurt a fellow Christian's feelings. How do you handle it?
A. To heck with her...If she can't take a simple TRUTH once in awhile she doesn't need to be in God's family.
B. Do whatever it takes (Including hugging her and apologizing to her) and trust God. (The Son of Man came to seek and save that which was lost.)
C. Don't worry about it...I'm sure she'll call.
3. Your dog, whom you love, is riddled with cancer. You know that he is dying:
A. What's the problem? He's only a dog.
B. Hold him, hug him, make him comfortable and trust God. (A wise man looks after his livestock.)
C. Put him down.
I'm sorry...I've had a tough week.
Our God is a good God. He is the ONLY God. He isn't less good because He doesn't answer our prayers the way we want Him too.
Don't make the mistake of answering life's questions too quickly.
Fill your mind and heart with scripture and make God's word your daily bread.
If you do, you'll always be able to answer "B".
