Don't Be Cruel - Mini Article Now Available

In the Old Testament, God exposed “bullying” when He said, “You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear your God: I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:14).  It is cruel for a “deaf” person cannot hear the curse and respond.  Putting a “stumbling block” in front of a “blind” person when they cannot avoid it is despicable.  No examples bullying could be simpler to understand. God corrected this when He commanded: “Execute true justice, Show mercy and compassion Everyone to his brother” (Zechariah 7:9).  If you were in their place, how would you like someone to do you that way? Jesus summed up this anti-bullying teaching when He said, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 7:12).    - February 23, 2020
