The Sin of Apathy: People Gives Up Their Dreams and Hopes Early in Their Life
The world is rife with negative energy, too much anger, sorrow and indignation. Too much bitterness, too much anger and too much depression around the world, what stops us from having a beautiful life?
What’s the difference between a blessed life and an easy life? Are we good enough to take the blessings from God? Do we disappoint God again and again by wasting our talents or leaving our duties and responsibilities behind? Countless people feel they are badly rewarded by God. They believe they deserve more. They assume their effort or benevolence deserve a better life or more blessings for being a good-hearted person. Are we the captive of fairy tale?
As I delve more into the Bible, I came to realize the importance of “temperance.” Most people ignore the potential damaging effects of unlimited freedom. The key to happiness and blessing is not unlimited freedom but self-discipline in which is also identified as one of the 7 heavenly virtues.
Without executing self-discipline, habitual compulsive laziness makes us disappoint about ourselves. Because we can never get what we want out of life by being indolent.
Social prejudice is much like air pollution that people breathe it or spread it without awareness. Social prejudice is everywhere and people are unaware of their faults.
Pride is a key element of social prejudice. Any form of prejudice initiates implicit bullying and persecution. For instance, those who stigmatize divorce are the culprit to imprison women in toxic or even abusive marriages.
What ruins the harmony of the world is that too many people suffer from an unjustified sense of inferiority from the mainstream global society, which stops people from chasing what they truly want out of life.
Prejudice is but an implicit form of discrimination. There’s a strong connection between social prejudice and any form of violence in the society, such as collective bullying, discrimination, verbal abuse and exclusion.
According to the Bible, the all-knowing God knows our desires and motives. Situated in a capitalist society, are we living in a world lack of compassion?Are we living in a victim-blaming culture?
Countless people recognize life troubles or traumatic events as God’s punishments. What about the great figures in history? According to the Bible, God only disciplines those He loves. And most people are unaware of the fact that “easy life can be temptations.”
Post-traumatic growth is possible for everyone is there’s no foolish social prejudice or malicious false beliefs.
What’s the difference between God’s discipline and God’s punishment? The former demonstrates God’s love because God only disciplines those HE loves and the latter shows God’s wrath to the injustice.
God see things differently from human beings. As your life differs from your original plan, don’t be scared. God has a better arrangement for you. In a sense, life troubles can be the chance to secure personal awakening or personal growth. Because “God has a better plan for us” or we are chosen by God to complete a mission to make the world a little better. As to God’s discipline, there will be compensations. Again, you should not identify life challenges as life troubles or God’s punishment if you don’t deserve it.
When it comes to the definition of a good person, most people think of boundless forgiveness, obligatory tolerance and charity, but countless people have no idea about the 7 heavenly virtues and 7 deadly sins, all of which should be the life principles for everyone. The fact is that most people underestimate the sins of prejudice, anger, habitual laziness and apathy, all of which are included in the 7 deadly sins.
Countless people find themselves not good enough “yet” to be loved or “not successful yet” to be respectedP
God’s always watching over us. Keep goodwill in the hard times. Stay positive. Never loss hope in the future. The best plan or love choice in your eyes in not absolutely a good idea in God’s sight.
 The seven heavenly virtues refer to prudence, justice, temperance, courage, faith, hope and charity.
 The seven deadly sins refer to pride, envy, anger, dejection, avarice, gluttony and lust.
 Apathy is one of the 7 deadly sins.
 Give your anger a deadline.
