Only when you see yourself as a victim do you lose hope. When you give in to the suffering or resentment.
Because there is something else true of life for every single one of us.
Life is suffering and life isn’t fair.
We live in an irrational age. We live in an age where the big lie is life is divided into victims and oppressors.
It’s so easy to blame society, blame our culture, blame somebody else out there for your problems.
That is so naiive.
Suffering is what we all experience one way or another. There is no clean dividing line between victimhood and oppressor. There is no answer in pointing outside of yourself to find the answer to all of your problems.
Your problems are 100% your problems. No, you can’t always help what happens to you. But, you are responsible for how you respond. If you are a teenager or older, you are 100% responsible for your attitudes and actions. There is only one answer. Jesus.
Yes, he dies but he was raised from the dead.
So, get connected to Jesus and stay connected to Jesus and watch what happens.
How have you been suffering lately?
