This person is often causing problems. He even stirs up others to defy people in authority, such as parents, teacher, the police, and even the pastor.
He has a mind of his own and doesn’t abide to any rules or regulations. It is as if he had the skin of a snake. You can’t hold him nor teach him anything. He slips through the fingers of those who try to help him and point him to the right way; it seems like no one can tame a troublemaker.
He is proud to be who he is. Maybe, that’s his way of “protecting” himself from people’s opinion about him. But let’s see what God thinks of them.
“Here are six things God hates, and one more that He loathes [abhor, detest, hate] with a passion: eyes that are arrogant, a tongue that lies, hands that murder the innocent, a heart that hatches evil plots, feet that race down a wicked track, a mouth that lies under oath, a troublemaker in the family.” (Proverbs 6:16-19 – The Message)
This kind of behaviour is very unpleasant and detestable to God.
He feels intense disgust toward this type of attitude because that was the spirit the devil manifested before being cast out of heaven.
Are you a peacemaker or a troublemaker?
Are you bringing your family together or tearing them apart? Are you bringing unity in your tribe or blatantly speaking evil and poisoning others around you against your tribe leader and pastor?
Do you make a positive difference when you are involved with other people or you always cause disruption, division and make others lose focus?
“Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.”
