Do You Really Care?

Many people, including Christians, feel so sad & shocked when famous actors, singers, comedians, sports’ players suddenly die. Many admire these people’s lives & talents. However, why do many think that famous people are invincible? They're not just admiring a “make believe” character; they are admiring a soul that will one day give an account to God. If we really cared about these people, we would be concerned about the condition of their souls. The first question that should come to mind is – “Is he/she a believer of Jesus Christ?” Whenever you’re watching a movie, TV show, or game, be more concerned about where your admired person will spend eternity than how well they perform here on earth. If they haven’t trusted in Jesus, the Word says...

* You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:43-44

*Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. I John 3:8

With these verses in mind, we should NEVER look at people the same. See them as Christ does and pray for their salvation…that’s the best way to show you really care.

I couldn't agree more! When Lindsay Lohan was going really crazy... in and out of rehab... KSBJ said that instead of bashing her, we need to pray for her. It is so true! A lot of people look down on Lost Hollywood, but we should be lifting them up!

Well said! Hopefully, the Christians in their circle of influence are trying to influence them for Christ, just like I try to do the same for whoever is in my own circle of influence (which right now is mostly my neighbors and the neighborhood kids since I am an at-home mom).
