A reflection on bullying

Reflections for the day

Psalm 121:2

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Matthew 5:11-12 & 38-48

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour
 and hate your enemy.’  But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying for him. –William Law

A reflection on bullying

Heavenly Father,

Thou art Our Heavenly Father who is loving, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who is compassionate, and thou loves each and every one of us. Thou love for all of Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by time, and thou love for all of Mankind is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou with all of a heart, and with all of a soul, and with all of a mind, and with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables thou love for all of Mankind to spill over into a relationship, and we acknowledge that thou love for all of Mankind is one that enables all of Mankind to love thou neighbour in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ loves us all.

Heavenly Father, thou art the creator of thou world and all that is in thou world, and thou hath created all things known to all of Mankind, and thou hath created all things unseen by all of Mankind. Thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular appearance, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular shape, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular colour, and thou hath created all of Mankind to be born with a particular size. Thou hath created all of Mankind to be equal in thou eyes.

Heavenly Father, thou art almighty, and thou art most powerful. Thou art Our Heavenly Father that knows all, and thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and thou hath possession of all thou facts. We acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is of one to draw closer to thou, and we acknowledge that thou purpose for all of Mankind is one to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we acknowledge that all good things happen to a self who can live a life that can be described as godly.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou world was created by thou as a world that was just,  and we acknowledge that thou world was created by thou as thou world that was right, and we acknowledge that thou world was created by thou as thou world that was one that was perfect and that was one that was of harmony.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that in Ancient Times there were many that rebelled against thou, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what is described in thou Scriptures concerns a justice, and much of what is described in thou Scriptures concerns the treatment of another. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind about discrimination, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach all of Mankind that thou desire is for all of Mankind to treat all alike, and with a due regard to a race, and with a due regard to a gender, and with a due regard to a cultural background, and with a due regard to a social standing. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou values, and thou sense of justice, prevailed through thou commandments.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon the nature of bullying. We are able to see in a way that is clear that what is described as bullying is one that occurs on an occasion in the work place, and that what is described as bullying is one that occurs on an occasion at home, and that what is described as bullying is one that occurs on an occasion at school. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying that can be described as unkind, and that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying that can be described as hurtful, and that there are some who have suffered from an act of bullying that can be described as one where pain has been endured in a way that is physical. We acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that can be committed by a word, and we acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that can be committed by a deed, and we acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that is committed on a basis that is face to face, and we acknowledge that an act of bullying is one that is committed on a basis that is described as one that relates to a use of the internet.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that during the ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was subjected to words that were unkind, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was subjected to words that were hurtful, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was subjected to acts that caused thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to suffer with a pain that was physical. We acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to love thou neighbour in thou way that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, loves us all, and we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to show a mercy to some who can be described as an enemy, and that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, taught all of Mankind to forgive another.

Heavenly Father, thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, died for all of Mankind in order to redeem all of Mankind from all sins, and to show all of Mankind thou way to thou. We acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must be pure in a heart, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must be pure in a mind, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must be pure in a deed, and we acknowledge that in order to draw closer to thou a self must forgive another, in order for a self to be forgiven by thou.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all of Mankind in a life that is daily, and we ask thou to give a self a confidence to endure when a resource is low, and we ask thou to guide a self to see in a way that is clear when a self ought to remain silent, and we ask thou to guide a self to see in a way that is clear when a self should act, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to guide all of Mankind to place a worry, and to place a concern, with thou.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect carefully upon what is described as cyber bullying. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are many who use what is describes as a social network site in a way that is fitting, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who use a social network site in a way that is hurtful, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who use a social network site in a way that is unkind. We ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before the Government of thou nation of thou United Kingdom, and we ask thou to provide a number of opportunities before a provider of a social network site to address all concerns that relate to bullying, and we hope and we pray that all concerns that relate to bullying will be resolved, and we hope and we pray that many will see the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that a self will make the changes in a life that is necessary in order to show a repentance. We hope and we pray that many will turn to thou always.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake, in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be the most supreme, and the most absolute power and being, that governs all of thou world that we live in, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    I am learning not to pass comments and appear judgemental. That which sounds OK in my ears might be considered to be an act of bullying. It is better to learn to remain silent and carefully think about one’s choice of words. It is not easy, but with our Father’s help can be eventually achieved. Amen
