You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another.Leviticus 19:11
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.Matthew 5.12
Sometimes a setback is rooted in your own actions or choices. You did something that hurt another person. You disobeyed God. And now you’re facing a storm because of it. But often, the storms we face in life aren’t because of something we did. Instead, we suffer because of other people’s poor decisions. When someone else’s decision turns your life upside down, God uses it for his glory.When someone else’s mistake puts you in a difficult situation, God works through it anyway.
