woah….

OK, so i was reading through Acts 13 and Paul says this to Elymas the sorcerer:

You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord? Now the hand of the Lord is against you. You are going to be blind for a time, not even able to see the light of the sun.

I was really struck by Paul’s harshness. Our generation (i’m including myself in this) seems to have such a tendency to not confront people with truth when it may be offensive. Crazy stuff. I hope that I’m close enough to the Spirit to discern when this harshness is necessary and when it is destructive.
