Gone In Seconds
1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
As we’ve entered the heart of spring time here we’ve started to see more of those spring showers. As that rain made its way here I’ve seen more and more pictures of what sone of these storms have done to the south and west of us. The total destruction of the tornadoes that have went through some areas. You can’t help but think how families have put in years of hard work only to see it vanish in seconds. Unfortunately, that’s the same thing that can happen in our lives. The word “appearance” has always stood out to me in our text verse. When you see what goes on in today’s world the truth is often pushed aside for agendas. Wrong place at wrong time. Wrong words used at an inopportune time. These are just a couple things that could ruin a persons testimony and reputation in just a matter of seconds. Our testimony is something that can take years to build. When you think of how hard it can be to earn someone’s trust. The amount of time that can be put in to earn the confidence of others. All that can come crashing down in just seconds. Always give thought to each situation you are in, and the words you may use because those decisions can can change your life in just seconds!
God bless you today! Bro. Josh Richardson
