Will Anyone Love Me Enough to Stop Respecting My Feelings

Among the reasons people are so hard to help (at times) is because they are determined to have their thoughts and feelings respected, even when what they think and feel has failed them.

This desire has no useful place in the life of the successful saint.  Once a child of God accepts, "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."  (Isaiah 64:6 KJV), then the idea that he brought anything to God that should be respected is indefensible.

Perhaps it is the fact that God uses other imperfect people to perfect his imperfect children that generates resistance.  How many times have we heard someone reject sound counsel, not because the words and ideas were uninspired, but because the messenger was not highly regarded or, worse yet, because the messenger did not respect how the one who rejected them felt.

Time to get past the minor failings of humanity because the time for every human being, whether saved or lost, is much shorter than we believe. If anyone believes their feelings are not respected in this life, I can only imagine how they will receive the disregard that would be ehaped upon them in hell.
