My boy, a great lesson for you:
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Paul is saying, keep your mind and your heart stayed on the good things of God. Christians should not be negative. We should always look on the bright side. There is more than enough despair in the world without the Christians adding to it. Be positive in this negative world; bring hope.
It is the responsibility of every Christian to be a bright light, reflecting the Light of Jesus to this lost world. You may be somebody’s only look at what Christ is all about. Give them hope, not more despair.
It won’t be easy……. there will be times you want so bad to say “I told you so”. Let it go, don’t get sucked in by everything you hear at school or see on tv or social media. God expects us to be different, to be above it all.
Love you bud!
