SET FREE! FROM THE TWIN TOXINS OF CYNICISM & SARCASM
THESE ARE POISONS THAT DESTROY RELATIONSHIPS, REPUTATIONS and INNOCENT LIVES
Arrogance is the root of this family tree and is quick to produce the bark of hollow judgment, limbs of suspicion and leaves of blatant criticism.
Cloaked in a swarthy ridicule of anyone within earshot, the cynic acts as though they are some sort of word wizard. They conduct themselves as wordsmyth artisans when most of what they have to say are hurtful 'word myths'. Is there way of escape from villainous slavery to empty contempt?
“We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you. Pray to the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. So Moses prayed for the people.”
It's awful to run into cynicism. It makes you want to run the other way but the comments pierce our curiosity like talons grabbing our flesh. It comes in varying degrees every day from people of all walks of life. Just these few comments may have caused you to think of other people but its when we see it in ourselves that's when the truth begins its healing flow.
These twins are as toxic as cyanide. They are like a drug. They anchor conversations with slander and cunning. When cynicism & sarcasm show up in our speech we snicker to ourselves, 'How clever we are'! Cynicism and sarcasm also create their own circle of 'fiends'. They tend to attract others who 'enjoy' dabbling in the art of satire, derision and mockery no matter how hard they hit innocent targets.
If we think we can afford to imbibe at this bar of selfish consumption, think bout the cost: broken trust, broken relationships, broken hearts with no end to their poisonous effects. There is only one way to stop the cynicism & sarcasm (and all their relatives: rumors, jealousy, anger, hatred, variance, spite, apathy, passivity, and you fill in the rest of the list).
Are you ready for the Sword of the Spirit to slay the vipers of cynicism and sarcasm?
