Beware of statements that may seem right, but totally contradict the word of God…especially from our leaders.
Press Secretary said:
“They elected someone to be strong and when he get’s hit he’s going to hit back.”
But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.
(That means don’t hit back)
Peter 3:9 (NIV)
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
(That means don’t insult or insult back)
Strong words are just that…words. Always measure them against the word of God, and not you emotions or what you may think is right.
Proverbs 14:12 (NKJV)
12 There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death.
If it’s contrary to the word of God, it’s in defensible and will eventually lead to destruction.
Pray for all of our leaders to submit to the word of God, first of all for their individual salvation and relationships with God…and for the good of our nation.
