June 13 – Cyber-bullying

Cyber-bullying has become a household word almost overnight. Have we opened a Pandora’s box? Intimate damaging photos posted on the internet have led to a rash of tragic, unnecessary suicides of young people. Present day technology is available to a society that rejects the idea of a personal God in most educational institutions. When this is combined with the idea that there is no right or wrong, no absolutes, we reap what we sow. Paul the Apostle warned, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” But it is not too late! God is not dead. He is alive and still invites every one of us to turn away from godless lifestyles. When people, young and old understand and accept the hope offered in Jesus, change takes place, lives are transformed. Peter wrote, “…The Lord is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
