Mafia vs Sheriff

In the mafia vs serif game, there's a big group of people that sit together in a circle the spokesperson handles each player a card from a poker deck, if you get a jack you are in the mafia but if you get an ace card you are a sheriff, any other card makes you a civilian. Each player keeps their card a secret In each round the spokesperson narrates the place of the location and the time. If the spokesperson says it's nighttime hole group closes their eyes and pretend to go to sleep during nighttime the spokesperson tells mafia to wake up the silently the mafia opens their eyes and choses someone to take out hoping it's a sheriff. After the mafia group its instructed to go to sleep the sheriff group is instructed to wake up and they all vote off a person to take out. During the day the hole group wakes up and the spokesperson narrates who the mafia killed and who the sheriff took out. During the day stage of the round they also dominate three people and with votes one of them gets hang.
As a disciple of God I have bump in to other that are just there for the wrong reasons like the mafia. I have also seen people pointing fingers trying for everyone to be in line and for everything to be fair. God wants us to act justly. “With what shall I come before the Lord and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?  Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?’ Offerings must come from the heart. (Micah 6:6‭-‬7 NIV) Yes as a disciple God wants us to obey his commands and teach others to obey but how do we go about treating others around us? As a disciple I don’t want to be there for the wrong reasons I want to be there because I have given my heart to him. We must love mercy. “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”(Micah 6:8 NIV) Meaning that God sees all and forgives all that seek forgiveness so you must not discourage those who mest up and instead of isolation you must invite them to fellowship and encourage them with mercy. As a disciple you must also walk humbly, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40 NIV) As a disciple you must be helpful to other because God will ask you for your actions on earth when your time comes. When one is not giving offering one must have the heart to be helpful whether to be a Usher or offer help to other brothers or sisters that have trouble getting to service.
Yes as a disciple one must aim to be somewhat like the civilian in the mafia vs sheriff game because they are the ones that don’t point fingers but do chose to participate and try and be helpful. Because you must know where your walk with God is and if you know that others are not doing good you must be helpfull only if they seek it from you and when they do help them with mercy and lovingly.
