So it’s the government’s fault … or Minister-for-whatever’s fault!
I’ve got to admit, I’m very frustrated with how many things are popping up on news feeds and other social media streams that are full of criticism for … well pretty much anything and everything that isn’t right at the moment.
It’s as if blaming a political party, a politician, or a senior “official” makes things better or makes it ok!
Why do we find it so essential to apportion blame?
I’m not saying that we don’t ever hold people responsible for things that need to be accounted for, it’s more the way so many people seem to take an almost sadistic pleasure in making others squirm, that I feel is so inappropriate and damaging.
Most of us are not making the absolutely huge decisions that have to be made at a time of crisis, as well as getting on with all the other issues that have very little, if anything, to do with CV-19!
Surely we can find it in our heart to give some grace and understanding to those under extreme pressure to fix everything!
I’m sure after this Crisis is long past there will be more criticism of the way things were handled and a post-mortem on who said what, when, why and what they should have done.
Can I ask for some kindness toward our leaders and decision-makers? There’s kindness going around for people in need and isolated people… let’s have bigger hearts and extend the same kindness to those in jobs and positions that most of us will never be in or have to cope with the things they need to decide! 🙂
1 Timothy 2: 1-4 TPT “Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. 2 And pray for every political leader and representative so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. 3 It is pleasing to our Saviour-God to pray for them. 4 He longs for everyone to embrace his life and return to the full knowledge of the truth.”
