Entitlement: the silent killer

be a faithful servant

Entitlement: the silent killer
Rachel Witt

Entitlement: the fact of having a right to something. What exactly are we entitled to? The right to have an opinion, and the right to vote. These are a few examples, but I have noticed a few things in society that we feel entitled to but are in fact not.

The Lord promises us His will be done in our lives, which if we are faithful in prayer for Him to reveal that to us He will. But when we go off making our own plan for our life this can leave many of us disappointed. He doesn't say that everyone will get married have children, and have a job that has a high paying salary. That's okay.

We as people need to start looking at the things in our life as blessings, rather than must haves. There are people everyday who struggle with not having a certain opportunities. Many children aren't getting educated. Many couples aren't able to get pregnant, and many people aren't in relationships. If you have the blessing of knowledge use it to teach others. If you have the gift of children, raise them to love others. If you are blessed with a boyfriend/girlfriend, change the world together.

To see a change in society, We need to lose the thought of entitlement. We need to be faithful in prayer seeking the Will of the Father. He guides us to love deeply, and that will allow change in hearts of people. Be a servant and use the gift that our Lord has given. That's where we can see true growth in people, because we are growing for the beauty of the Kingdom.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
