We must pull back and rest our souls.
How is this done one may ask? Because no one can do it for us, we have to find a way to limit what we see and hear, especially through the internet, from those who would deliberately harm our peace of heart and spread their evil thoughts.
Example: The hateful messages sent over the internet concerning Senator John McCain’s diagnosed brain cancer…and those attributing it to God’s wrath for McCain’s political views. How insane!
God does not bring illness or evil to the people of the world that He sent His Only Son to die for. We have natural causes for illness…whether it is the environment, disease, genetics, or things about which we know nothing. We must put our entire lives in God’s hands and do our best to correct, through medicine and prayer, what we can of human sufferings.
Years ago so many died of the black plague and other diseases. Thankfully God has given us the intelligence to research for cures still unknown. We at Boyer Writes wish Mr. McCain the blessings and peace of God.
Those physical afflictions, not caused by natural causes, would be wars or individual decisions that bring pain, not only to the body, but to the spirit and soul. These are caused by human beings, which usually starts with the words that come from the mouth or hatred in the heart. ( Shown above is McCain when he was released after 5 years as a prisoner of war and Senator McCain today. )
For all the good technology give us and the ability it gives every human being to spread quickly words of evil or encouragement, we may once again be reminded of what one of the greatest geniuses of our time had to say. Human kindness and interaction is one of our most important qualities.
The Holy Scriptures remind us of this in 1st Peter 3:9. “ Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.”
