Why does it have to be that way?

There are Christians that live to disable people by their actions and hurts.
Why does it have to be that way?

There are Pastors that say, "Ministry would be great if it were for the people."
Why does it have to be that way?

We call working to buy material items while working full-time in the ministry "Tent-making"
Why does it have to be that way?

There are people that look at others' actions instead of their heartfelt intentions.
Why does it have to be that way?

There are great people that put their friend between them as they wage war and demand allegiance to each's cause.
Why does it have to be that way?

There are people that watch for those whom God has set on fire and eagerly ambush them with buckets of water to quench the Spirit.
Why does it have to be that way?

There are people that complain about an issue, even make threats, but in no way want to be a part of the solution.
Why does it have to be that way?

There are churches that live for the status quo and refuse to take risks.
Why does it have to be that way?

Why does it have to be that way?

(Believe me, this isn't a "Boo-frickity-hoo story" but, rather, one to stimulate you.)

I just got back from the most amazing conference of my life where God moved totally. Wow, freaking amazing. during the process, I decided to sling my "shield" (The emotional protection we all put up so that people don't hurt us). When I came back to work, I found that with most people I was allowed to let down my guard. however, one person saw the vulnerablility and took a solid shot to the "gut". "Man, that hurt." it was only when I thought further about why that bothered me so much that I discovered I had let my guard down. then, another dude put a drop kick to the sternum this evening. Man, why does it have to the that way.

Christian, have you ever wondered why people are so jaded in this world? Take a look at how you act with people. I am guilty too. We all have a snide snap or a hurtful "hand". Why can't we just love each other for our differences?

Christian, they will know you are a Christian by your love. Love, love, love. Not kick you in the face when you are alone and isolated. Hmmm....

Well, I love you all. May God guide your steps.
