Things are left behind for various reasons.
Sometimes it’s part of your heart.
Some of us have had to leave our homes in the past and go on to other adventures in our lives.
Sometimes it’s people we love or used to. Sometimes it’s the life we used to live.
Sometimes we are leaving actual “things” behind. Things we paid for but of no real value. The false importance we placed on the “thing” due to some great marketing campaign and the idea of keeping our economy viable. Truth is, the more things we leave behind, the more we can actually start living again. Many born past 1980 never got to live, they have been “consuming” since birth.

The love of my life and His message to the world is:
Treat others as you wish to be treated. A very simple concept.

You can’t be faithful to God and have an ungrateful heart. Most that don’t believe in God or do believe but choose to hate Him and try to defile Him in all that they do seem to have a childish mindset that God is like a genie that grants wishes. They don’t get what they want out of their life so blame God or think because they make bad choices and have poor impulse control that God does not exist.
The only people who can think this way are those that were not taught spiritual truth. The term is “walking in the dark.” They say ignorance is bliss but in the long run it really is death. Man will be held accountable for deliberate ignorance. God knows if you know something is wrong but choose to do it anyway or when you find something out that you know is true but try to pretend that it’s not and try to blame it on our current liberal propaganda that is obviously destroying His world. I think we were all born with certain inner knowledge, as most creatures, of what to do and what not to do. It is called instinct. Since man is very selfish by nature because of that survival instinct, it is important to temper this selfishness with civility or spiritual training or any kind of civilization would be quite impossible. Sometimes it truly looks like many are completely brainwashed by the low-grade movies churned out by the greedy and depraved. Just cause you watch it on a screen, does not make it real life or anything worth imitating. Man is very easily influenced by others, that’s how we learn. It’s shameful that most of any entertainment that exists in America has so much gratuitous sex and violence instead of instilling values and reinforcing the positive qualities of mankind.
People seem to forget, that much like our earth is being mindlessly trashed, if we are not mindful of how we are raising human beings and treating one another, there could come a point of no return for everything. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, we are not guaranteed the use of this earth, especially if we don’t take care of it. The same goes for others in our lives that are not treated with the love and kindness that Jesus spoke of. This is exactly why He is the truth, the life and the only way.
So yes, I consider myself faithful. How could I not be faithful to someone who loved me enough to die for me?
