Always I reflect that God is merciful, but is also just
“Abraham said: ‘ my Lord do not be angry, if I say it one more time: what if there were only ten? ‘ He replied: ‘ because of the ten, not destroy ‘. Having finished speaking, the Lord withdrew, and Abraham went back to your tent “(Gn -33 18.32).
These days, I went to mass and was reading this and thinking about the mercy of God.
Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by immoral practices, the debauchery that people no longer listened to God, and that, because of your disobedience it should be destroyed. With the call of Abraham the God, This said if there were at least 10 righteous in those two cities, they would not be destroyed.
Brothers, I was thinking that we Christians should be those 10 righteous people praying every day for non-destruction of the world. Always I reflect that God is merciful, but is also very fair, and he will charge us for each incoherent attitude that we have, for every witness that we don’t do. Sometimes, I wonder if the world is not like that, because I’m not giving my testimony. Therefore, I should fight to be that salt on Earth and that light in the world.
I need to have the courage to contradict the world and to claim to be of God is much better.
