I have been away from this blog for a couple of weeks and as I get started again I remind you that what is put in here is meant to encourage you to focus on God and seeking to please Him in your everyday affairs. I was reading an article last night in which was detailed a lawsuit involving an employee who was terminated 3 days after his hire date because of something he had said in a public forum the previous year regarding gay marriage. The employer was Fox Sports Southwest. The employee was Craig James. The comments stemmed from a debate that he attended as he ran in the primary race against Ted Cruz for his seat in the U.S. Senate. His comments regarding gay marriage were based on the fact that it is an immoral lifestyle that is being perpetuated by society today. He believes that homosexuality is a choice. I think that it is important for us to realize as Christians that these are stands we need to be taking in our everyday affairs. We may not have the same outlet to express ourselves that Mr. James had, but we still should not fear speaking out against the perversions we see in the world today and have book, chapter, and verse to back up what we believe. 1 Corinthians 6:8-10 is clear about this lifestyle choice. We should be proud to speak where the Bible speaks. As we get started in this week let us have the confidence to boldly proclaim the truth whenever we have the opportunity knowing that our Father in heaven is watching over us and will care for us and lift us up. Have a wonderful rest of the day in service to the one true and living God.
