The dictionary defines Tainted as something that has been contaminated, spoiled, some kind of poison, corrupted, imperfections, abnormalities, being affected by decay and rot, not edible.
Are you tainted? Is your environment tainted? Let’s see where some of us stand on being tainted.
Do you find yourself gossiping about others? Do you find yourself jealous and envious of others? Do you think that you are better than others? Do you find yourself being competitive? Do you think that you are the only one that can get the job done? Do you single others out? Are you selfish, is it your way or the highway, do you always have to be in control? Is it your four and no more? Do you tend to treat others better because they have money and could help you get to where you want to be? Do you love being out front? Do you compromise? Do you get upset or silent when there is a change? Are you a taker? Do you like being served and hate serving? Do you always want the best seat in the house? Are you upset when people are promoted? Do you like being out front? Do you poison people by what you say about others? Are you Ms. or Mr. perfect? Do you feel like you are never wrong? Do you think your ideas are always the best? Do the people you surround yourself with think and act like you do? When you find out that someone else can do your job better than you do you secretly sabotage them to fail? If you answered yes to just one of these questions, you Mam or Sir are tainted.
Matthew 5:13,14&16 Ye are the salt of the earth: but the salt have lost its savor, where with shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men, Ye are the light of the world, A city that is set on an hill cannot be hit. Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
So would you eat food that is not seasoned? Bland food has no taste and the word state that we are the salt of the earth we have savor and flavor.
So it taint mine and it taint your right to taint anything. The good news is that tainted people can be redeemed. Repent today for the Kingdom of God is at hand!!
Forever His Servant,
