Looking after you as in, if you talk about other guys that you like, they won’t get jealous or clingy. Instead, they’ll tell you if you’re wasting your time or to be careful. Those guy friends that protect you from getting hurt. They warn you about anything. They just care for you and you can talk to them about anything. There’s no awkwardness between you two and he makes you feel good. Yeah, that guy. A friend.
I read the news story about the earthquake in Myanmar… the death toll is up to 120 now, after originally being around 77….
another massive earthquake in the world…
I scroll down to see the comments, and over half of them were “Christians” proclaiming judgment, wrath, and the coming Kingdom of God……
It made me sick to my stomache… I was hoping to read prayers… to read of people offering information on aid organizations… I was hoping for something like that.
But when the Burmese need hope—they get THAT……
I’m praying for the Burmese…. but also that the Christians will get a clue…. that is neither the time nor place to shout things about judgment….. things like that make people run from God, not run towards the loving God who is crying in the midst of the pain… the God who weeps when we weep… the God who is offering hope in the midst of the devastation….
Peace and love, friends. Be bearers of light—not voices of doom and gloom.
I never even knew about this last night, but now, it’s quarter after noon and I’m praying for those in this post (i.e. Burmese, fake Christians, etc.), and just when I thought enormous earthquake season was over, BOOM.
