Sometimes, in this world, bad people do bad things and get away with it. Sometimes they even do horrible things and never get caught. But that’s only in this world. They won’t get away with it forever. Wanna know why it’s never a good idea to do bad things to others? Well, keep reading…
You may already know that none of us, here on Earth, live forever. But did you know everybody will live or exist forever…somewhere? It’s true. And the way you’ll know if you live forever with God, or exist forever without Him, is to get to know Him.
There’s a place in the Bible where it says anybody who lives a life of doing bad things to people will be in trouble with God. And God doesn’t care how much money you have, what kind of house you live in, or even if you have the coolest smartphone. None of those things matter to Him.
What matters to God is that you love Him…and you love others. Know why? Because you’re made in His image. So is everybody else. That means you’re more like Him than any of the animals, fish, or birds in the world. You can talk to God, and He’ll hear you. You can choose to love Him. Animals, fish, and birds can’t. You’re special to God. So special He sent His Son to Earth to become a man and make a way for you to live with Him forever.
That should make you want to stand up and sing, or dance, or laugh with joy. It should keep you from wanting to do bad things to people. All you gotta do is get to know God. And that’s not so hard. Just start reading about Him in the book He wrote…the Bible. It’s full of wonderful things to help you live better now and live forever.
What do you say? Will you start today? I hope so because changing your mind and your heart is gonna change where you’ll be forever. Don’t think just because some people do bad things and get away with it that you can, too. And here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
Bad people do bad things
And never seem to care.
They think they won’t be caught
As they do what they dare.
But they will have to stand
In front of God’s white throne.
That’s when they’ll find out how
They’ll always be alone.
