"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold" - Matthew 24:12
As the conditions of this world continues to grow worse, the people in this world are becoming more and more heartless and their love for others more and more cold.
Don’t let the conditions of this world persuade you into acting, responding and living n a way that can bring disgrace upon your character, reputation and the gospel of Jesus Christ. You can withstand the test of these times. You can survive this world with a good attitude.
Love, even if you are not being 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. People will give you what they expect from you, but let the response you return to them be with love, compassion and understanding – an unexpected response.
BE DIFFERENT, ACT DIFFERENT, RESPOND DIFFERENT and LIVE DIFFERENT. Be the highest example of life in the light of Christ as best as you can, especially in times like these. Be influenced by God and your life will be an influence to others who will see you as a difference in this generation.
