Have you ever noticed the back-biting, cursing, hateful words that come from someone’s lips up until the time someone says they’re in a bad situation? People will slander each other and say the most cruel things to each other on Facebook, through the grapevine, email, and occassionally in person until someone is in dire straits, then the situation changes! They say, “God bless you” or “our prayers are with you,” with a furrowed brow and pouty lip. Do they really pray?
Could it be that they suddenly believe in God? Or could it be that this is the extent of what they’re willing to do to help, and it takes a front seat to outright ignoring the person? At least they’re not being rude, right? They’re sort of passing the buck–to God!
Where has sincerity gone? They’re all allowed to fake concern, because unlike an orgasm, concern is alright to fake. So, ask yourself, is it selfish to anticipate God being behind someone who uses Him as a shield to be slothful and dishonest? That’s a good question! Perhaps those who truly believe in God, should pray about it. Those who won’t, you know where your sincerity lies, and next time you should consider where your words come from.
