Abuse – Spousal, Physical, Emotional

In today’s faced pace selfish driven world filled with unemployment, financial stresses, increasing homeless population, the increased amount of families facing lack of school supplies, food, clothing some men and women turn to physical and verbal abuse.  In many cases the individual turns to drugs and/or alcohol in order to escape.

Abuse is never accepted but we as a society must find it in our hearts to help these families, each individual and the children move from feeling that there is no hope and realize that as a community we can pull together and overcome these challenges.

Forgiveness is a vital part of what God create by the sacrifice of His only Son.  We as a society have moved away from second chances to condemnation.  There are going to be times that a person hurts our feeling.  The day that we as a human race stop forgiving, stop believing that people can’t change we as a society have lost all hope in humanity.

Colossians 3:19 “And you husband must love your wives and never treat them harshly.”

Ephesians 4:26 “And don’t sin by letting anger control over your.  Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.”

Proverbs 14:29 “Those who control their anger have great understanding: those with a hasty temper will make mistakes.”

Proverbs 17:9 “Whoever forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates intimate friends.”
