One Minute with God: Empathy or Apathy
Have you ever experienced a part of your anatomy going numb? Or, have you attempted to stand up from your seat while the flow of blood has been cut off from your limbs? Isn’t it the strangest, if not funniest scene to witness someone attempting to posterize themselves while balancing on what seems to be “two left feet?” So, it is when you and I are attempting to keep a straight face while spiraling into an emotional coma.
Apathy is a silent assassin, and It’s almost impossible to be effective at anything if you and I are being desensitized or paralyzed by our lack of zeal. Most people who have lost any permanent loss of feeling is usually paralyzed or dead. So, losing the love for what you do, or anyone you love may put you in danger of an unexpected involuntary termination. Keep your spiritual fervor in place, and persevere under every circumstance so that you will receive your end reward.
God desires for you to live with empathy, rather than to suffer from apathy!
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.
