Yesterday we talked about ignoring those people in our virtual lives that just don’t seem to have a stinkin’ nice thing to say. We all know someone like that here’s hoping I’m not one of them! I didn’t mention one thing…because I figured I would offend someone…but here goes anyway:
21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. 22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.
A few years ago I was having a hard time dealing with a situation in our lives where we were wronged. We lost friends, and it hurt. I just couldn’t get over it! Finally a beautiful, Christian friend of mine told me, “Looks like I need to come over and help you heap some serious coals on some heads!” I knew of the scripture but I had a feeling she wasn’t talking about heaping coals of kindness…it was more of a good Old Testament stoning!
I laughed. Hard!
I actually had several opportunities to poor kindness all over a few key people and it felt good.
So when that old high school “friend” gets on your Facebook wall and turns into a teenage drama queen…just think…how sad for her! She must be very insecure to feel the need to do that. Give her some grace, pour some kindness on her and then Click -> “unfriend”!
You don’t need that kind of junk in your life. *serious eyes*
