I don't know about you guys, but I have to admit, there are many times when it comes to obeying God, the inner five year old in me is literally screaming out " this is not fair". This inner child always seem to come out when things that are harder to obey, such as love one's enemy, bless them and do not curse, and always approach your brother and trying to seek reconciliation , especially when they have done something vicious and may not feel particular apologetic..... and I think to make the whole thing even harder is the reality most Christians, if they are being honest with themselves, is that they themselves ignore those commands in their daily lives more often then they are willing to admit, but it does bring out the inner five old in me, stomping me foot at my Dad, and ask Him why I should obey Him, when so many of mine siblings around me aren't doing it. now I am not condemning anyone here, because when it comes obey God on the hard stuffs, I will be the first one to put my hand up and admit I ignore them far too often. The best I can manage at this point is not to return evil with evil, but I cant remember when was the last time I try to overcome evil with love. I mean I have started to pray for people who have hurt me, but still, praying is a start, but translate into actions? I don't know...... but lately I have been pondering on Galatian 6 9 'Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" as well as 1 Corinthian 14 HisManySongs often quotes "Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it—because it does"
