A Reason to Steal (Baltimore, Maryland; It Ain’t a Color Thing!)

changeOnce again riots have erupted over the mistreatment of another human being.  These rioters intentions are not honorable, only self-serving.  For, if they truly believe a great injustice has been done, they would devise a logical, peaceful plan; and present it before their local and state government.

Once again riots have erupted over the mistreatment of another human being.  These rioters intentions are not honorable, only self-serving.  For, if they truly believe a great injustice has been done, they would devise a logical, peaceful plan; and present it before their local and state government.

No, the evil inside of them sees an open door for destruction and stealing! And sad to say, most of their leaders like Sharpton and Jackson are vainglorious. Wrapped up in their own egocentric plans. Their only examples of how to behave in tumultuous situations, come from other devious individuals.

I would like to ask the rioters, “Where are you (rioters) when thousands of Christians, (black, white, indian, asian) are being exterminated across the world? Your “black” brothers/sisters are being killed through gross mistreatment; i.e. beaten, tortured, and beheaded. While your own country’s leaders just turn a blind eye toward it.”

“Will you take to the streets to march for justice for them too?”

Oh, yes, I must remember that would not serve your selfish purpose.

Do I hear crickets?

Because the color of someone’s skin should not be the reason, for the cry for justice. The cry for justice should be, because of the injustice toward any and every human being!  And, a rioters only objective is to stir up added destruction, like a tornado ripping through the land. The path to equality, is for everyone to work toward a peaceful, unified goal.

The bible, tells me what will happen if I take matters into my own hands. And since I fear God, His words cause me to pause before  running out to take advantage of a fiery situation. It might be something you would like to know, too.

In Genesis 9:6 it says,“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in His own image.”

So when you flip someone off, cuss someone out, assault someone, or loot property; you are directing the action toward the image of God or God. And, God says that He will not let it go unnoticed either.

Genesis 9:5, “And for your lifeblood I will demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being.”

God has just told me and you, that your actions will have a boomerang effect on you, your family, and your home. Without asking forgiveness and changing our ways, we will never know peace in our lives. Who wants to wake up one day and ask how did I get here?  In a bad way.

Not me!

Be the voice of a Godly man or woman! Our communities need someone to rise up, and speak truth and peace back into the people’s lives. Take the opportunity to be real change!

And if you need something to say, write this down and put it in your pocket to recite.

In the great words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr (a Godly man.)

 “We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear… That old law about “an eye for an eye” leaves everybody blind… The time is always right to do the right thing… Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”

 Because if the color of your skin is the basis of your life, you will endure great pains and struggles. God says we are to have no other God except Him. So, don’t make the color of your skin, god of your life. The real and only God is waiting for you!
