Give your Respose

One Little Text Message

Michelle
February 12, 2009

I logged onto the internet during lunch yesterday and read about the text message that caused the big fight between Chris Brown and Rihanna. TMZ reported that while Chris was driving, he got a text message from a woman about hooking up later.

I don’t know about all you females out there, but I’m wondering how many girls are still going to want to buy Chris Brown’s albums or download his love songs after he’s allegedly beat up his girl over an invitation to cheat on her! Now, I wasn’t in the car with them when the fight is said to have happened, and I have no idea what Rihanna might have done or said to ignite Chris Brown’s anger, but what’s happened between them brings up a few points that are worth thinking about during this Valentine’s Day holiday.

How do you treat people? I know Valentine’s Day is mostly thought of as a romantic holiday, but it’s really a time to value a lot of different relationships, from your relationships with your family members, to your relationships with your friends, to your relationship with your significant other—if you have one, and it’s fine if you don’t! Matthew 7:12 is where you can find the Golden Rule: “Do to others what you would have them do to you” (New International Version). Do you really treat others the way you want them to treat you?

How honest are you? Seriously, are you an honest person in everything you do? Are you a cheater when it comes to homework and tests? What about relationships, do you cheat? Do you lie? Maybe you live on the down low—you don’t cheat, but you’re pretty good at deceiving your parents, some of your friends, and the people at church. Some people try to get away with cheating or deceiving others, but they aren’t always successful. The truth is, eventually all cheaters will get caught. Numbers 32:23 says: “You may be sure that your sin will find you out” (New International Version).

Check out this definition of love: “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7, New Living Translation). If we were all loving people the way that definition describes, there’d be a lot less fights and a lot less text messages going around like the one Chris Brown received.
