NEVER HURT FOR FUN

No matter the area of life or endeavor you find yourself, it is safe to mind the way you treat others, the repercussions of intentionally hurting others for fun is grave! many people have planted ignominy and thick cloud of struggle over the years ahead of them. Don’t let your mindless actions empty your future. The future is delicate! Some years back, a teenager profoundly defined fun and pleasure as things and activities that get you off normal for a while. There is one thing I have discovered life keeps a file! In the habitat of fun, many have incurred long term struggles over their life. Many years after men would have forgotten their deeds, time keeps the record and maturity of hurt brings them to bear!

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. James 3:5-6.

Years ago I saw a movie where a woman who had three children as they walked along the road, a reckless drunk driver ran through them and murdered the three children and sped off. The woman out of the agony of pains with almost nothing to live for and the sour memories of the tragic death of her children spoke ill words “may the one who caused her this pain never find help”. The reckless drunk thought it was fun but for over 20,30 years he labored in vain, his life was full of pains, struggle and emptiness. help was far from him and his family. He had forgotten where he wronged and it was no longer fun for him again. Are you carelessly hurting someone? Have you hurt someone intentionally and laughing it over? Are you putting someone through pains? Think again and rush back for forgiveness and mercy now! Hmmm.. When we forget ourselves, we do things that are remembered.

But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. James 3:8.

Words are powerful; a pronouncement from an afflicted heart will be honored. The tongue is such a lethal instrument, it curses and blesses. The wish of the afflicted will be granted without hesitation especially when the hurt was an intentional wicked act or hurt for fun. It is wickedness to delight in hurting people for fun. Some friends will stab the other so badly that the other party in the midst of the cry of pain will make painful pronouncements. They may be few words but can damage the entire life of the callous offender. A very bitter person may barely say, as you have made life tough for me, may life be tough for you or may you not find a helper!may you not attract battles of pains to yourself in Jesus name!

Some people just derive fun from hurting people. They just laugh carelessly over the pains of others but a careful sorrow of grief awaits them also. What a culture of cruelty! God said owe no man anything except love. Anything outside love for and to a fellow man is share wickedness. only a wicked soul laughs at others calamity or rejoices at the fall of others! Woe unto him by who offense come. There are people you think can’t do anything to you because you may be more than them in everything(probably richer and more influential than they are for now) but may they not use their tongue against you. i admonish you Never undervalue anyone or say you can’t do anything especially when you are oppressing such a person!  it maybe your spouse or friend, colleague , family member or even brethren. The same way a heartfelt prayer gets answers so also painful negative pronouncement launches sorrow into the life and generation of the wicked.

Listen well, you may take your wicked act for fun but you will be under the tribute and curse of your action. Actions are investment. These days, some young men just go about getting ladies pregnant for fun and abandon or deny them, they raise the child in struggles and some may never be fortunate to settle for another family again, hence they live in pains and hurt. Some of these people out of pains may sometimes just make terrible pronouncement and that pronouncement will form a canopy over the offender. There is nothing that the offender will do in his life that will see the light of the day, it will be struggle upon struggle. Life will be acidic and corrosive to such.  Dignity starts with the man! Stop enjoying irresponsibility!

The message is that when we refuse to take responsibility, when we are callous and careless, we attract battles of struggles in life!

Don’t hurt for fun, it is disastrous. stay truly amiable!

what do you say?

    “Don’t let your mindless actions empty your future.” This line is powerful.
    It flashback my thoughts of how I related with people even when I wasn’t guilty!
