CLARITY – 6-7-18 Targeting to be Expected


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-7-18


Targeting to be Expected


What’s Happening:  “The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) was seen for the first time (at FEMA in D.C.) since May 10…since having a procedure done on a ‘benign kidney condition.’ Rumors, fueled by an antagonistic media, have talked about a facelift, abuse, and a near-death experience ( Trump Tweeted, ‘During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!’”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Knowing how Trump has treated women, it’s believable.”


Biblical Response:  “He may still be suffering for the reputation of yesteryear (which he may have rightfully earned), but I want to give a guy a chance to change. Besides, where would any of us be if everything we’ve ever done were still held against us? I’m prepared to forgive and move on. The media? Not so much.”


“Christians? Try being the First Lady of the Universe (FLOTU? – the Church). Ever noticed how Hollywood usually portrays the clergy or the Church in a questionable position? However, it’s to be expected and even rejoiced over (Matt. 5:11-12). In fact, one of the requirements for admission to the Council of Nicea (365 AD) was showing the scars of persecution on your body – proof of Christ’s ownership. Targeting is to be expected.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to accept the ‘slings and arrows’ sent our way and to not be surprised ‘as if something strange were happening’ (1 Pet. 4:12); in Jesus’ Name we pray, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
