I AM JUST SAYING!

I don’t think about how I want to be treated, I already know, and I can find nothing wrong with wanting to be treated like a Queen, so agree it is alright to think highly of you. I also agree that there is nothing wrong with the right mix of self-esteem, but thinking lowly of others may be a cause for concern.

Some big personalities choose not to be humble. If that’s you, beware, there is a price to pay for wrongdoings, in deed and thought. All Hell is in the mix. There I said it.

What we do now will determine what we will receive later; if there is a later. Do the right thing when it concerns others, and we may not have to pay up when it comes to us. Do what Jesus would do, after all we were bought by the blood, paid for in full.   

For you must realize you have been ransomed from a futile way of living passed on to you by your traditions, but not by any money payment of this passing world. No, the price was, in fact, the blood of Christ, the unblemished and the unstained lamb of sacrifice.    1st Peter 1:18-19  

I AM JUST SAYING!

You have been redeemed, at tremendous cost.   1st Corinthians 7:23                        

We do a lot of pushing and pulling to rise above the rest, combined with doing mean things without thought. Anything to win, and for some, at any cost. I no longer want to be first if I can’t be fair. Yes, I want The Grand Prize like everyone else, the goal for me is to earn it.

A mind that simply refuses to do the right thing, can bring down countless. (The World Trade Center, etc.)  I remember when I threw the first stone; it was a tiny pebble, it came back like an unexpected boomerang. Lesson Learned.

What we earn and learn is what’s valuable. If we prefer to take what we want instead of achieving it on our own merits, we may become bullies, thieves, or as I did say back in the day, some are just plain old lowlife’s.  I was wrong for that uncalled for opinion. But, I know there is truth in you reap what you’ve sown, agreed or not. “It is what it is.”

I AM JUST SAYING!

Most know the difference between right and wrong, including the ones who claim they don’t. Making the right decision is key. A decision that calls for action thru Jesus Christ, a strong mind, and the will to obey the Commandments is necessary to change our perspective. Without Christ; Oh Well?

In my opinion, one of the most human things we can be for anyone is to be considerate of their views, concerning personal needs and values… Don’t be a know it all when it comes to what I should do. You, do you, I’ll do me, and we’ll both do Christ. Deal?  Are we on the same page?

In order to become a blessing and more considerate of another position, (someone’s life)  we may have to make sacrifices, causing us to care for the well-being of others over ourselves. In case some of you are wondering how, take into consideration; “It’s not all about you,” or maybe it is? Some of us have a one track mind. I remember how shallow I was. “My way or the highway.”

I AM JUST SAYING!

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.   Galatians 6:10

I didn’t like it when someone sneezed, or coughed anywhere near my space. Now why wouldn’t I think others felt the same when I did it. We are often caught off guard in situations far worse than a sneeze or two. One being the person who may get an attitude if someone suggest we cover our mouth when coughing.

We owe it to yourselves to find ways to provide a healthy environment to protect our loved ones as well as others. Living in a clean environment and a healthy state of mind is critical. And it is certainly a bad environment if everyone is sick, hungry or whatever at the same time. Some of us uppity types may need to look up the word, epidemic. Some fail to realize or don’t care that others have a life too, and it is as important to them, as yours is to you.

I AM JUST SAYING!

Who do we think we are? I don’t care how important we think we may be, the truth is, anyone can pass the Hebe-gee bee’s on. Hey, don’t get mad at me, I am just the messenger. I had my comeuppance already. The good news is “the devil ain’t all that, either.”  Praise God!


Now, I agree it’s alright to use excuses as long as they are not lies. Gaining control of our tongue is necessary to avoid giving and getting a lashing. When we understand, the less we say before thinking is a benefit, and that there is no need to explain our every move, especially if we have to create a fictional storyline. We may be able to speak our minds with tact, facts and some mannerism in our tone.

If you couldn’t make the affair, you were unavailable; “it’s as simple as that.”   And it’s alright to speak our mind while being civil to one another. The only way we can survive as a person is to get along with each other. This way we can share ideas and create the things we all need to make our lives productive. And when we make mistakes, so be it, forgive and let’s get on with it. Like it or not we still have to depend on each other. Well, I could use some help, become your best friend if necessary, after all it is the Christian Way..

I AM JUST SAYING!

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you.  Ephesians 4:31-32

Without the knowledge and kindness of others, how can we become one and how can we progress? It seems as if we all have a piece of a world-wide puzzle. The key is realizing we have to work together for a common cause to put it together. Each of us has our very own set of unique tools. Tools that work well with others. Our goal should be to glue all of the pieces together, for the sake of ourselves, humanity and a Commandment; Love thy neighbor.

Some of us work with our hands, some with their minds, and some not at all, for reasons we may never know. Then there are those who have spiritual gifts. We should be mindful of what we say, how we say it, and to whom we are speaking. Forgiving our enemies and those who have made serious mistakes. Embrace the talents of our peers, by lending a hand in the building process in order to secure the future of the world, the betterment of man, and our place in the Kingdom of Everlasting Life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Let each of you look not only to his own interest, but also to the interest of others.   Philippians 2:4

I AM JUST SAYING!

I cannot read your mind, when are you going to learn you cannot read mine? I have my opinions, as you have yours. Let’s agree not to repeat them to no avail, and move forward. I don’t know everything, nor do you. The truth is I really don’t care to know, too much information for me, and you can’t know everything so stop trying to prove to me that you do. I don’t need you to tell me how to live my life, I have Christ for that, but I am open to suggestions.

I know we are all different, and I have no problem with that. Do You?  And I agree with “come as you are.”   Only you and The Lord know our state of being. Understand when others mind our business or we theirs, things tend to get messy. You and I are not the only one’s made in God’s image. Get over it, so as not to let his Goodness slip by in vain. I know it is better to give than receive, I have tried, on more than one occasion, and it works. Being humble is the hard part.

I AM JUST SAYING!

Do the right thing for the sake of others and be considerate of them and theirs. When we sacrifice and do unto others, we will be blessed. The key is to shy away from the side of the vanity. Keep your unselfish deeds to yourself. (Giving to charities)  But if the Deed is of God, then blessings may have occurred.

SHOUT HALLELUJAH!  PRAISE GOD, AND “GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN.”

NOW I AM JUST ASKING;

Why not follow Jesus Christ?  Take into consideration, God so loved the world, he gave is only begotten son.  Amen
