I just realized a signifigant spiritual truth. Wish I could unrealize it. I haven’t considered every aspect of it yet – however let me toss it out there and see if readers have any imput.
“…the goal is to grieve God. We’re just pawns, not the goal. The goal is getting to God. How do you inflict pain? Go for the children of the person you want to hurt.”
I was thinking not just children ~ in fact children and not very good targets because they have not reached the age of acountability – but if people you love – that you feel should know better – are being led astray it does hurt. And it is also promised right there in Matthew 10:34-37 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
I never realized what that verse really was talking about but now it is so clear.
