Life Has Not Treated Me Well

Where Living Begins

life treating you

The salesman in the store greeted me by asking, “How’s life treating you?”  I paused a moment and answered, “Not very well.” Clearly uncomfortable with my answer, he fell silent.

We live in a fallen, sinful world under the curse and judgment of the Almighty God. Life has not treated me well. I get sick and am dying. I see violence and poverty all around me. Man knows no limits to his cruelty toward his fellow man.

While life has not treated me well, God has been very good to me.

Life gives me what I deserve; but God shows me love, mercy, and grace unending.

To attribute the good things in my life to life itself, is a subtle form of idolatry.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! Because His mercy endures forever(Psalm 118:1).

SOS from Syria. “The Christian Valley” between the city of Homs and Tartous is under a massive attack. Uncharted Ministries and its 8thirty8 prayer team just spoke to their National Leaders in Syria and the situation is horrific.
