Attitude Adjustment

Proverbs   19 – 19

A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment : for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again.

1 Peter 4 : 12 – 14

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you :

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings ; that, when his glory will be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye, for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you : on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

Some people need an attitude adjustment when they talk about sick people. I have heard people say that the person got the kind of illness he deserved in life. Christ suffered greatly for our sins and he certainly did not deserve the punishment that he was dealt. God does not punish his loved ones with horrible diseases it is just part of nature that eventually we get illnesses  and diseases that will eventually kill us.

I cannot stand it when people are so rude and impolite to people that are dying from a horrible illness. The person that has the disease is actually a wonderful, kind,caring and compassionate human being. People try to categorize people into neat little packages they  think they know how to unwrap and what makes that person the way they are.

Those of you without sin let you cast the first stone and as you already know no one is without sin. Diseases and illnesses come to us in all of our life’s stages. We did not ask for the disease or illness to stand out in the crowd we want to blend in with the crowd just as we did when we were teenagers.

Do not judge or make fun of ill or sick people you will be their yourself someday and probably a lot sooner then you ever imagined possible. Show the love of God to the sick and ill so they can find peace in this world before they pass on.
