Daily Devotional – 8/14/14 “It’s time for a change!”

I shared a little of this on yesterday and I decided to share it again today because; well it just needs to be shared. I posed the question … What is going on in this world? When did it become normal for innocent people to be gunned down in the streets by the people who have taken sworn oaths to protect them and then have it justified because the kids are being disrespectful? If disrespectfulness equaled death then a lot of our children would be dead. If more parents would use the rod of correction like our parents did, we wouldn’t have so many kids who would find it so easy to pop off at the mouth. Proverbs 22:15 says, “Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of discipline will remove it far from him.” It’s in the word. Evil, depression, despair, sadness, gloom and misery has gotten more comfortable in our homes, on our jobs, riding with us in our cars and it’ll even come along with us to worship service. You don’t have to believe me, just take a look around. Folk don’t smile anymore because they don’t feel like they have anything to smile for when depression is sucking their joy out. Folk don’t even worship the same because misery makes them think other folk are looking at them so they sit down on their praise. Sadness will make them think suicide is the only alternative to living and some even succeed because they never tell anybody. And you want to know why folk don’t tell you when they are going through most time, when they are sad some time, when they are in need that time or when they are without this time. It’s because folk, us; we, judge. When who are we? Don’t we all put on our pants one leg at a time? Don’t we all bleed red blood? Don’t doctors use the same type scalpel when they operate? Don’t they prescribe us the same type medicine? Aren’t we breathing the same air? And when we die aren’t we being buried in the same kind of box, although you may pay more depending on your insurance it was made with the same wood, we are being buried in the same dirt AND we will meet the SAME God?

Saints don’t worship anymore because worship doesn’t even reside in our vocabulary like it should. We’ve gotten away from studying our bibles because we’ve now become fascinated with studying facebook. Isn’t it funny how it’ll auto correct you to capitalize the f on facebook but not the b on bible or the g on God? When will we reprioritize our priorities before it’s too late? Stop thinking that things that has happened to others won’t happen to you because it just hasn’t reached your block yet. I’ve never had depression on my doorstep but I know that it can consume you. I’ve never had grief make me feel like taking my life but it has shaken me to my core. I’ve never had sickness take me to death’s door but migraines make me stumble in my tracks, even today. The point I’m making, we are all going through something so instead of gossiping, putting your mouth on folk, dipping your nose in someone else business, trying to find out what’s happening in someone else church, what her husband is doing, what is his wife wearing, why she don’t look happy, why she post that, why did he like her status, why did he look at her, whose sleeping with who, texting and checking and all that crap; GET YO LIFE. Yea, I was going to say pray but before you can pray for yourself and anybody else you have to be right, so get yourself together. It’s time out for all this foolishness. You don’t have to believe me, scroll down your timeline, pick up your newspaper or turn on the news because you will quickly see that you don’t have time for all the foolishness you think you do because I surely don’t. It’s time for a change y’all.
