Punching Bags

Some people blame Christians when they turn away from the faith. And Christians happily take the beating. Didn’t it ever occur to anyone that maybe the reason they turned away from the faith is because they consciously made the choice and rejected Christ in their hearts?

It is important that we need to be watchful on how we conduct ourselves everyday to keep the testimony of Christ in our lives untainted. But it is equally important that we don’t beat ourselves unnecessarily for other people’s decisions. Not only because it’s not healthy but because in the greater scheme of things, I believe that God didn’t mean for us to become the world’s blame catchers, fall out guys and spiritual punching bags.
