the power of our words...and our prayers

well, many people have noticed that someone has been leaving comments as an "anonymous" person. and many of you have also noticed that the comments being left by this person are completely uncalled for, immature, obnoxious, and totally pointless other than to perhaps make some of us mad. so this post has 2 messages:
1 - to the "anonymous" poster - whoever you are, i have been praying for you. seriously. something must be going on in your life that bothers and upsets you so much that you try to make others around you upset. i can't imagine what it is since i don't know who you are, but i really do care. however, they was you are leaving comments is wrong. there is no need to be so derogatory. and the random swearing and crude comments that you have made only make you seem very much like the idiotic fool and the scoffer that are spoken of in Proverbs. it makes me sad to realize that the more you do this, the more punishment and unhappiness you heap upon yourself. so please stop. not only for our sake, but for yours as well.
2 - for the rest of us - why do people do things like that? what happens to them to make them so spiteful toward the rest of us? i think part of it may be how we treat these people. whoever this person is knows my name. maybe i did something to them that was ungodly. maybe they just don't like me. i don't know for sure. but i think we can all learn something from this. this person is hurting and they want to make others hurt. what can we do? we can love those around us and try to show them that there is a way to be loved in a way that a human cannot comprehend. so the next time that annoying person in your life says or does whatever it is that sets you off, pray for them instead of mockin them. and myabe say something kind to them. you never know how much a little thing can mean to someone else.

Way to be in praying for him and all. You're right, we need to be thinking of the hurts behind the anger. But question then... why did you call him an idiotic fool? I'm not trying to be mean, but that's kind of shooting yourself in the foot. And your thoughts are good, so go with them.
