The Discussion

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

Recently we had a discussion about people vs. Corona Virus and surprisingly the discussion was quietly accepted. Admittedly David and I dominated the discussion but it made sense as a matter of fact it made so much sense that nobody dared to argue with us.

We, as the people of the earth, need to stand united in compassion for each other. We need to help each other so we can overcome this pandemic but the problem is that not everyone feels the same way. There are many people, mostly non believers, that feel that this a hoax created by the government for one reason or another or that even if it does truly exist it is highly exaggerated by the government or some third party to devastate the world economy or some such thing. Or maybe because they are thinking only of themselves and not others and they would rather blame someone else rather than be part of the solution.

The Christian people are entirely different.

17 Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king. 1 Peter 2:17 (NLT)

And

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12  (NIV)

Christians will act with patience humility, gentleness, kindness, compassion, and respect for all people. Christians will stand 6 feet apart to protect others as well as themselves. Christians will wash their hands often to protect others as well as themselves. Christians will wear masks to protect others as well as themselves. Christians will not be greedy or think of just themselves. The rest of the world may think this way but Christians will not. Christians will kneel before God and pray.

God bless all that read this with His love, light, grace, mercy, and wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)

P.S. – Thank you David for your inspiration
