If there is anything that is exposed quicker in this time, it is the American Christian lack of discernment. Somehow we act like discernment is some gift of the Spirit… you either have it or you don’t. To which I simply scream: GROW UP. PLEASE!
If you want to believe that some secret lab created this as a biological weapon, and now everyone is covering that up, I can’t stop you. If you want to believe one of the dozens of conspiracy theories already circulating, that’s your call.

Just the past few days I had one of those problems where I knew it was bad news. But just a small whisper to go get it checked. Finally, I obeyed. The problem was not “cheap” to fix, but it was doable. A few more days and I would have probably been in a worse predicament.
Listening to small promptings are for every day things at times. I’m thankful for that.
