Don’t Take the Bait – Shine Through the Darkness

No matter what our way of life is, when confronted by the hardships and injustices of life, the easy road is to respond with hatred, bitterness, and feelings of discouragement.

I refuse to take the bait that our media and certain political individuals are stirring up.

Regardless of what comes my way, I choose to respond with prayer, faith in Jesus, and to let my voice be herd in a nonviolent manner. In doing so, I will do my part to disprove any false stereotypes that other individuals may have regarding my race and religion.

I encourage everyone else to do the same. Don’t allow anyone or anything to rob you of your joy and hope for a brighter future.

It may be easier to hate, but it is stronger to love.

Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Ephesians 4:26-27
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.

Ephesians 4:31-32
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Romans 12:1-2
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Romans 12:21
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, there is no better time than right now. Jesus is the only person who can help us navigate through this life successfully. Apart from Christ, the darkness will eventually consume us. Don’t fall for Satan’s trickery, and the bait to hate that this corrupt world system is very slyly promoting. Choose Jesus, and the wisdom and love that He provides.
