Today, its officially been 7 years since our Country was attacked.
Think of all the families that are greiving today still. Think of the kids that were orphaned, or the ones that have to grow up with only one parent.
Think of the women that lost their husbands, and the men who lost their wives.
Think of all the fireman, policemen, EMTs and others who were lost.
When you think of all the death and pain that those terrorists put our country through, what is the first thought that comes to mind?
Wanna know what mine is?
"I hate them!"
I know, not a very spiritual answer huh? If thats my veiw, what do you think everyone else has? What about the ones I mentioned above...those who actualy lost loved ones? What about all the families that have sons, daughters, husbands, wives that went to war for our country over the 9/11 bombings? How do you think they feel?
Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but guess what?
We can't hate the terrorists.
Why? Because the Bible says so. It says in Matthew 5:44 "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" This by no means excuses what those evil men did. Do not put words in my mouth! But it does say, that no matter what they did, we shouldn't and can't hate them. Because no matter how much we may disagree, or dislike it, Jesus died for their sins to.
So today, on the 7th anniversary of 9/11, pray for the families, soldiers, & our President.
But also, pray for the terrorists...the Iraqs and Iranians not involved in the evil their country is doing. Yes, I did say to pray for the terrorists by the way. They need prayers, because God loves them just as much as He does you and I.
