Don’t Over Think the Problem

For it is we who are the circumcision, we who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh– Philippians 3:3 (NIV)

Monday Motivation: Don’t Over Think the Problem

Last week there was a great deal of focus on the riots in Baltimore.

On the talk shows over the weekend, the subject of black neighborhoods and what is lacking has and will continue being an over talked topic for politicians, sociologists and those with expertise in economics and urban planning.

The unfortunate missing truth of these conversations is what is the black community willing and ready to do when there isn’t a national spotlight placed on a black male being killed by someone in law enforcement.

One can applaud the efforts of the various religious leaders in Baltimore who decided to put aside their denominational hats and converge as one to help to quell the violence.

But, the truth of the matter is that black folks must also take on the responsibility immediately in being pro-active and hands-on in our neighborhoods, rather than being reactive and anticipating yet another unknown black male or female being eulogized before street cameras and on Facebook.

We as a society have to deal with the facts about our young people but don’t over think the problem. Rather, we need to meet it head on.

We have a crisis within our head and heart because some of us choose to believe that one’s circumstances in life determine one’s fate in life.

Of course, if you are engaged in this kind of mindset, you will water the seeds of discontent and failure.

However, for those of us who believe in Christ, we know that the real enemy is always fighting mankind from knowing the truth, to set him free. We know it as sin.

Right now, our young people in America need men and women who are not afraid to stand beside them and firmly but,  with love, guide, teach and instruct them in Godly wisdom and truth.

If we truly care, despite the obstacles, we will eventually see the seed which is being water by time and patience, will bear great fruit in our young and their future.
