This week's Sunday Reflection is written by my dear husband that I try to translate as close as possible with the real Indonesian meaning. I wish I can get the meaning clear in both languages. Here you go…
Do you believe that there is sin? Human's life cannot be separated from doing sin. However, we sometimes are not aware that we have made sinful deeds. We judge other people's sin, mistakes, or faults more frequently and finally blame them so that there isn't anything good about others. In fact, the sinners are the one who needs supports, guidance, or suggestions so that they can return to the right track in the God will. We should not judge, isolate, and mock the sinners.
We need to help the sinners with our encouragements, attitudes, and manners so that they can be aware about the life that they are doing right now whether it is on the right track. Sincere love and attention are great action to give them the magical feeling and power to realize others from the cradle of their sins. They will change their mind and think that all their deeds are not right so far. In that moment, the power of love and sincerity become the power that can save the sinners' life.
Helping others needs to be done sincerely (even if the person is our enemy. If you are a christian, you should know that you should love your enemies too.) and don't let your mind choosing or discriminate others subjectively. As God creates the sky with the days and nights, all people whether they are evil, good, nice, sinful or unsinful can enjoy it. Everyone can enjoy all God's grace and gift whether it is days or nights.
When you feel that you were sinners who are waiting for others saving your life, please be thoughtful that you really want and need to change our life first. As the ol man said that “whenever there is a will, there should be a way”. Without a strong will to change, we will never see the love light as we are just like in a sin maze. Repentance needs a great courage to change our life to be better with all of the consequences.
Have you helped any other sinner and save their life?
What do you do for other people who make a sin or wrong doing?
