Scariest thing in the world

The scariest thing in the world is not terrorism,

It is self-proclaimed Christians’ desire to fight,

Instead of pray,

Speak,

Instead of listen,

Argue,

Instead of care.

The scariest thing in this world is the fact that praying for those who hurt us has been forgotten,

That we are equally guilty for escalating the bloodshed,

And we continue to point fingers,

Instead of listening to God.

Disobedient children,

And we claim his name.

If we want this world to change, it’s not about “doing something” reactionary,

Or spouting off on opinions we’ve already made clear.

Pray. Pray for the people who hurt you. Be prepared when God gives you the opportunity to serve them. Do not be the one to spit Jesus in the face.

This is not our fight. Prayer is what will win the battle.

I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
