Ordinary People


It Is Written, Psalm 145:18, the Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.
The world is full of ordinary people.  Lifestyles are different for most people.   Different people also value things differently.  Lifestyles sometimes take people out of the category of ordinary.
One man chooses to make a lot of money, while someone else is happy with a steady job, and another is happy with no job at all.  Who knows why each of us chooses to do what we do.
In many countries you can make your own choices about what you believe, what you do, and how you act.  You can choose whether you believe in God or not, and which religion you prefer.  These are basic rights that each person has.  Your choices are usually governed by what your heart tells you.
With these choices however, comes many responsibilities.  Most people can't seem to accept that.  The idea that each person has equal rights is a good one, and is one that we all should strive to do.
Equal rights means no one is better than someone else.  We should not judge another by what we think or do.  We should not force our opinions on someone else, just as we don't want someone to force opinions on us. If for example, someone is praying in the park, no matter what religion, you don't have to feel offended, just move on.
In our touchy, politically correct society, you almost feel that you need approval in order to breathe.  People get offended by things they are not forced to take part in.  Seems kind of ridiculous doesn't it ?
All of us can make this world a much less stressful place, if we judge ourselves, not each other.  If you don't believe God exists, when someone else does, so what.  You both have the right to have your own beliefs.
One last point.  The rights of whoever it is, should not be at the expense of someone else's rights, or hurt them.  If we all mind our own business and remember that the world does not revolve around us, the world could be a much more peaceful place for all of us.  Have a blessed day.                   Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
