Godly Principles #70 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” – Matthew 5:16 NKJV
To call your self a Christian and teach hatred, intolerance and violence goes against the very nature of God. Even when you are taking a stance to defend the word of God and our beliefs we must do so like Jesus showed us. He not only spoke the truth but he lived it in all of his work, relationships, and efforts. Jesus put God’s truth into actions and had mercy and compassion on the broken heart, the fatherless, the least of these shunned by mankind. Today, we are to pick up His cross and follow His ways and show through our actions the love and mercy of God upon the orphans, the widows, the prisoners, and the poor including the homeless. By acts of kindness taught in truth, we can help heal the hurting and wounded. We can relieve despair and pain to bring comfort and hope once again into others lives.
