Getting up on the wrong side of the bed is a phrase that has come to describe a day gone bad. I would like to modify this with a new phrase ‘Getting up on the wrong side of faith’ (which from now on will be referred to as WSOFs) to describe moments of faith gone bad.
The Crusades are a BIG TIME example of getting up on the wrong side of faith. The Salem Witch Trials were another not so bright and shining moment ‘executed’ (insert pun here) by organized religion. Dare I say Snake Handling is not on the radar of what the Lord intends.
These are a few WSOF Hall of Shame moments while most WSOFs fly under the radar without the extreme consequences of misguided Crusades, Witch Hunts.. or snake bit parishioners.
The following are a few every day WSOFs whose accumulative affect is definitely getting up on the Wrong Side of Faith as God intends.
So the next time any of us wake up on the 'wrong side of faith', pray for a Godly perspective valuing each of His children. May God bless the rich and powerful, and the lowly and meek for His Glory as we are all ONE BODY MANY PARTS.. ALL IMPORTANT. Love God, love others.. the rest is trivial pursuit.
