These are the same people that devour their own and spread lies. I even had a woman come up to me and tell me that I needed to work on being nicer after spending 5 weeks in a third world country eating their foods and living under their conditions. I would like to see her travel for 20 something hours to a country where she's never been and arrive without much sleep where she isn't even sure where she will rest her head at night.
What is wrong with people? I know Job went through the same judgments.
I’m calling this as I see it, “spiritual cannibalism.”
There are those that think for some reason that they are more deserving than others. I remember when I was younger working under a certain woman and she said, it’s just not fair that you have been given all of these gifts, and I have none. You can write and draw and I can’t do anything. I’m more deserving than you! Yes, she said it to my face. It was a bittersweet compliment. The kind you can do without!
She took it so far as to humiliate me as my superior she would buy me over sized clothes and demand that I wear them. I felt like a turtle hiding in a shell. I just wanted to be me, but you know sometimes were stuck in a position and expected to act in a certain way. We’re on the grand stage of life.
I want you to know that I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. I am a follower and devoted several years of my life to lead others to Jesus Christ. I'm not boasting about my works. I am identified by the fruit of my spirit. You can say your hurtful, gut wrenching things. But I know where I am in Christ. And, you, will not take away my joy.
Psalm 51:12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Because Jesus Christ redeemed me by the payment of His blood God can in His grace freely offer us salvation through faith as a free gift. He freely offers us “the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe . . . being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith” (Romans 3:22-25).
Job 33:9 I am pure, I have done no wrong; I am clean and free from sin.
Who are the accusers that stare at me with stinging eyes? The gossip spies that spread their lies. The wise spins their lies, hitting each one with pies in the eyes to end all lies.
Matthew 7:2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
