I have to go to get a check up which probably entails getting blood drawn. I hate that, don't you? It would be nice when the day comes that your blood can be tested without the stick of a needle or at least done with a numbing spray. I know that they have numbing spray now, but they don't use it for simple things like drawing blood from a vein or a finger prick. Oh well, such is life.
You can see people who act and talk tough, cringe at a needle when it comes to having blood drawn. Hm-m-m, one thing about talking tough, you will have to back it up one day. Trouble is so easy to get into but it if often very difficult to get out of. One day, you will have to pay the piper if you keep talking tough. You may find yourself wondering just how you got into the mess that you are in and wondering if there is any way out. You may find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place. You may find yourself wondering what to do to save face.
But that is dealing with people. What about countries? Big egos combined with the need to feel dominant of something or someone else have caused innumerable problems in districts, locales, and countries around the world.The sentence above encases the reason that man is often inhumane to his fellowman. But these things ought not to be because one day, we all are going to stand before the Lord and how can we justify our behavior toward our fellowman who we caused to suffer, and oftentimes for our own gain?
It is never too late, as long as we are breathing, to rectify, as much as is possible, any situations that we have caused. This applies to countries and to people. After all, the reward that we have waiting for us is more than worth laying down talking tough and picking up the hand of fellowship and goodwill. That is what I am looking forward to, that great meeting around the throne.
