Some people just don't get it. They talk and talk and talk about the importance of inner beauty, yet they do absolutely nothing to show they have any whatsover. They talk about how mean someone is for doing something to them (playing the role of the victim), and then you have to remind them that they've done that exact same thing to you before. They rejoice in others hardships by saying they "needed to be brought down a notch," even after the exact same thing happened to them. We all know people like this, and we've all asked the question a million times- "What's it going to take to get through to them?"
People like this are dangerous, because you never know what God will have to do to get their attention. This manipulative, two-faced, malicious attitude is usually something that only God can handle. It hurts so many people, but in the end, it is them that have to live with the consequences of their actions, no matter how they are trying to justify it now. They will have to look back with a life of regret of how they've treated their family and those who have been good to them when they didn't deserve it.
This is why it is so important to hear God's "whisper." Don't make Him shout at you, because it will, without a doubt, hurt much more. Don't make Him take extreme measures, like allowing a tragedy in your life, to get through to you. While you can't take back hurtful words and actions, it's never too late to start over, and today could be the day that you make things right.
