Accountable to God

Whenever I do face difficult situation or people and I feel like reacting badly, this few verses keep me from doing that. It’s not to say that I became perfect, I still do sometimes and God keeps me in check.

Romans 12:9-17
Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.

Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!

Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honourable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.

It’s not possible for me to become so forgiving on my own. I believe that God is real and I put my hope in him.
I am almost 18 and by now I can see a bit on how the outside world is really like. People being selfish and stuff so that they won’t lose out in life. Adults getting cynical as they get older because of their experiences. Life gets more dreary and boring.

It seems naive of me to really hope right? But I know that my hope won’t be shattered because God is real.

Amen!
