“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” – Matthew 24:12
As the conditions of this world continue to grow worse, people are becoming more and more heartless, and their love for others more and more cold. They are hurting, deceiving, and betraying one another without an ounce of care or consciousness.
But despite the unfriendly and unloving way people are treating one another, don’t let the love of Christ you have for others decline or deteriorate, and don’t let it influence you to act and respond in a way that can bring disgrace upon your character, reputation, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
You can survive this life and the declining condition of this world with a good attitude and a better response to the praise, honor, and glory of God, if you continue to walk in the light of Christ, and not let the negative behavior of others influence your response.
Love, even if you are not loved. Forgive, even if you are not forgiven. Respect others, even if you are being disrespected. Have a good attitude even if the attitude of others is bad. BE DIFFERENT, ACT DIFFERENT, RESPOND DIFFERENT and LIVE DIFFERENT. Be the highest example of a Christian’s life in the light of Christ.
Stay rooted and grounded in your love for Christ, for each other, and for those in the world, no matter what happens, or is going on around you. Let the response you return to people with negative attitudes be influenced by God, and your life will be an influence on others who will see you as a difference in a heartless world.
