Our little College Campus Snowflakes have been coddled for so long that they are poorly prepared for any real world challenges, which also include spiritual ones. Participation trophies, which the snowflakes are accustomed to receiving, are proving to be worse than useless because instead of strengthening their immature character through minor fails, they have been set up for epic falure for which they lack any proper foundational preparation.
Every man, woman, and child on the face of this planet has been called upon to engage in a spiritual battle. Failure to engage won’t produce any sort of consolation prize.
1st Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
Girding up – tighten the belt. It references the long loose garments worn by the Asiatics of old which needed to be tightened up, or compacted, for better work, or more effectively running a race, or effectively engaging in a battle. It is incumbent on each and every one of us to engage in such a way as to be able to call forth from within ourselves the courage and strength to fend for ourselves at critical points in time because when reality bites the improperly prepared will go down in flames, crying for nonexistent “safe spaces” as they finally realize the right, which they attempted to marginalize and sometimes to even shout down, was correct all along.
We all have a high calling to be thoroughly courageos, genuine, and sincere. We make our own life compact by the belt of trth which helps us to avoid loose, unsubstantial, unsustainable convictions especially in the realm of spiritual and eternal things. Even if God’s truth revealed to you is only a little bit it is to be cherished as a precious treasure of infinite importance from the King of kings and may be what makes you stable and helpful when others are weak and vacillating like little left-wing snowflakes.
Suck it up buttercup, the enemy of your soul is playing fore keeps and you can no longer afford to hide from reality. Your eternity hangs in the balance.
