Scary stuff

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Eph. 6:12

Hate, anger, greed, prejudice, selfishness, etc. is scary stuff, but people who have become ensnared in these behaviors are not the enemy. The true Enemy wants us to think these people are not salvageable. Love shoots holes in the darkness. The best way to fight evil is to love others and to do good with much grace.

Lord, protect me and help me to reflect Your light.
