I imagine that bullies have been around since the beginning of mankind. That fact doesn’t help anyone who is bullied feel any better. Bullies in previous generations were limited to the school yard and neighborhood taunts. Now they are on the internet and can target their victims in numerous ways.
Why do we feel the need to bully? Does it make us feel better? Do we like to make others suffer? If we are bullies as children, do we grow up to be bullies as adults?
If you are a bully, stop and confess it today. Repent and ask God to change your heart. If you are being bullied ask God to strengthen you – it won’t last forever. Those who are taunting you will soon leave your life and forget about you.
Reach out and love someone today. Pull them up and give them a hug. You may turn a life around for eternity.
2 Kings 2:22-24
Elisha Is Jeered
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.
