Sometimes I ask why God lets bad things happen to good people,etc,. What I forget is that God gave man free will & what worth would free will have if someone was always interfering with it. The truth is that man has agency/choice & it is up to man to decided what their actions will be. People are mean, cruel, rude, shirk responsibility because they choose to. The only comfort I can take from this knowledge is that everything is recorded, nothing is missed. I believe Jesus already has died for our sins. Which means the anger, wrath & um-bridge to take is the Lords.
So I figure the old phrase is true "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me". After all God does not want us to be stagnant & stupid. So follow the Lords example and turn your cheek, then run away from that evil. Bottom line change your actions to avoid people & environments that are made to drag you down. Surround yourself with people who show they follow God through their actions not just their words (after all words are cheap).
