We are now living in times populated by people who are selfish and who are blasphemers. Selfishness destroys relationships and robs our joy, while blaspheme is verbal abuse and slander towards God.
2 Timothy 3:2, TLB “For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good…”
Five descriptive terms that highlight the damage families may face:
#1 Disobedient to parents; children willfully doing what they want to do.
#2 Unthankfulness; a lack of gratitude.
#3 Unholy; lacks respect in the home, school, and even in church.
#4 Unloving; homes will become harsh and hard places to live.
#5 Unforgiving; rebellious, stubborn, and hardhearted.
Christians can walk in the light. Rather than walking in the things listed above, walk in the light.
#1 Be generous and unselfish.
#2 Be humble and care more for others than yourself.
#3 Teach your children from a young age to respect parents and all adults.
#4 Live thankful lives.
#5 Show your love and be the first one to forgive.
Today’s Challenge: When we walk in the light, we multiply the light of Jesus. What are some of the dangers listed above that you may see in your life? How can you walk in light rather than in those dangers?
