I USED TO BE A VERY FRIENDLY PERSON!
“I used to be a very friendly person, but life happened to me,” and that goes the story of everyone who defends their UNFRIENDLY DISPOSITION today.
Now the question is “how is our unfriendly nature working for us?” Just look around you, and you will see the consequences everywhere: Singles who are still not married today, because of their very unfriendly nature. People who are just in their late 30s, and are already divorced twice. Organisations that keep losing staffs, because of their uncaring nature towards workers. Individuals who cannot keep a job, because of an entitlement mentality. Businesses that are losing customers, because of their poor customer service performance. Families that are disintegrating, because of a familial self-serving culture. And the list goes on, and on, and a very bad list of what should never be happening to us.
The Population of the Human Race is fast increasing, while True Love that is supposed to bind people together is on the decline. Rather than turn to God now who alone can change us from INSIDE-OUT, we will rather chose disobedience to God, and obedience to self with strong desire to do it our own way, and so we chose Self-Love, we preach it, we live it, and we seek interventions that can REPROGRAM US to our so called “best self that has nothing to do with God,” rather than humble ourselves before the Almighty God who alone can RESTORE us back to His Image and Likeness in which Man was originally made with the intention of bringing Glory to Him who alone is worthy of our all.
But NO! We are not going to bring Glory to anyone else but SELF! Well that’s exactly satan’s doctrine too, AND LOOK AT WHERE WE ARE TODAY, as the love of many goes cold! And we all suffer the consequences.
Through our REPROGRAMMING INTERVENTIONS, people are learning how to ACT friendly, rather than become friendly which can only happen as we accept Jesus Christ as our Personal Lord and Saviour, then allow Him to LIVE THROUGH US!
Please find time to meditate on Ezekiel 36: 26-27.
26 And I will give you a new heart—I will give you new and right desires—and put a new spirit within you. I will take out your stony hearts of sin and give you new hearts of love.
27 And I will put my Spirit within you so that you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.
May God have mercy on us, and increase our desire for Him.
