The Scariest People An Absence of Love
By Bernadette A. Moyer
The scariest people in the world are the ones who have nothing and therefore nothing to lose. I am not talking about material possessions either, not houses, car and cash but rather a moral code. Whether you call it God or a higher power it seems that some people have no faith and no code of honor. They have no respect for life. These are the people that go out with a mission to hurt people and destroy life. It starts with their lies and dishonesty and mushrooms into more and more angry attacks.
They are void of love, empathy and honor. Everything is about them, their feelings, their belief, their likes and dislikes. These people have no regard for what their words and actions do to hurt others, it is all about them and their gratification.
In the movie, The Help where the evil and manipulative character Hilly is confronted, she wants to hurt the maid Abilene and finally the maid responds with, “All you do is scare and lie and try and get what you want. You’re a godless woman. Aren’t you tired Miss Hilly? Aren’t you tired?”
Have we lost our way?
We used to be a God fearing nation with a moral code and a code of honor. We prayed, said the pledge of allegiance and lived by the golden rule. We knew to treat others the way that we wanted to be treated. “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
Today we see responses of hatred and anger and violence. People that use guns, bombs and weapons that are used for the sole purpose to destroy. Often that destruction is pointed at innocent people that just so happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. They have nothing to do with the person or persons responsible for the destruction.
The scariest people in this world have no moral code and no God source; they have nothing and therefore nothing to lose. How do we help someone or give someone an inner code of values if they are void inside? What causes a person or a group of people to act out in hatred and destruction?
I can’t help but believe that it is about how they feel about themselves. If you were happy inside the last thing you would want is to hurt anyone. We seem to be living in time where there are a lot of angry hate filled people that spend their time deciphering ways to be hurtful and destructive. What kind of people murder and attack innocent and defenseless people?
Sometimes All We Can Do Is Pray …
Pray for the attackers that they find peace, pray for the haters and the mentally disturbed. Pray for the people with wrong thinking, prayers. Pray for the innocent victims of senseless acts of violence and actions of hatred and anger. Pray for the people, all people.
Love is a verb, where we can’t control what others do; we can control what we do. Love is the only answer. The people to be most feared are the ones who have no soul and no love.
“Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins, forgives and disregards the offenses of others.” 1 Peter 4:8
“LOVE OTHERS TODAY! Start your own love revolution by declaring war on selfishness.” Joyce Meyers
Make Me An Instrument of Your Peace
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
Where there is sadness, joy
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
Seek to be consoled as to console
Not so much to be loved, as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
It is in dying that we awake to eternal life
--- St. Francis of Assisi
