Don’t put yourself in the line of fire unless it is warranted, if not, you may discover the Earth to be a Punishment for you instead of a Reward.  That’s how I see things, You do you.

Just the other day I was visiting an 82-year-old male friend, and we were having a disagreement concerning some general topic that was of no importance to either of us.  No problem, but his granddaughter apparently was listening in.  As she passed by me she shook her finger and said in a very sarcastic tone; You should shut up, listen more and respect your elders.

Am I Missing Something?  She’s 34 and I am 70.   😦

Back in the day, if my parents were having a conversation no matter my age, I had better keep my mouth shut, and as far as telling their guests to shut up, I might as well sign my death sentence.  I was taught to stay out of grown people’s conversations and to respect the opinions of others even if I have to disagree with them.

The Bible tells us in Leviticus 19:32 KJV that Thou shall rise up before the hoary (gray) head, and honor the face of an old man (the elderly), and fear thy God: I am the Lord.  Somebody should listen.

I have met some beautiful people, physically speaking, and I have met some who were kinda hard to look at.  But by association, I have found the ones who were not blessed with physical beauty were far more attractive in their ways than the ones with natural beauty.

Am I missing Something?  The last thing on our agenda should be to not make ourselves or others uglier than we already are, especially in our ways.

Dee Artner reminds us that Judging is giving too much value on the surface and missing the value beneath.  And the Bible tells us, Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.  Proverbs 21:2  KJV

As a Blogger, I have received quite a few comments on and it’s almost impossible to single out certain posts, but one seems to catch my attention on a regular basis.  This reader is often complaining about how I could be more useful if I would stop talking about myself and spend more time with the concerns of others.  In my defense, I believe, if you did whatever you say you did, it’s not bragging, that is, if it’s for the good of others, and it’s a Testimony of facts.

I know God commands us to share what He has done for us.  And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach to every creature’.  Mark 16:15  NKJV  After all, I am a Motivational Speaker, don’t that count for something or:

Am I Missing Something?

I thought a Testimony was when we speak about what we have witnessed and what God has done for us and to share that with others, so as for them to learn from our mishaps or goodness, and to not be ashamed to confess that, coupled with what He will do for others.

Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.  Psalms 66:16  KJV

And just so you know, at times, it’s painful to read to some comments I receive when one gives a Testimony on my Blog, but my job is to motivate no matter how hard the subject, by being a Living Witness for Jesus Christ, and to not put myself above others.

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them; otherwise, ye have no reward from your Father which is in heaven.   Matthew 6:1  KJV

I was watching this TV show where 1st dates are reviewed, and the audience is given the task of picking the daters perfect match.  If you are lucky, and the audience picked the same future mate as you did at the beginning of the show, you can win a large cash prize, including an overnight stay at some fancy resort; With a stranger?

If the audience did not pick the same mate as yourself, you can still get the cash prize if you give up the person of your choice, regroup and choose the one the audience thought was best for you, therefore dumping your new-found loved one for the money.  Now don’t get me wrong but, that might not be such a bad idea since You Don’t Know Either of Them, but you’re still coupled with a stranger, and with money that has strings attached. 

Am I Missing Something? 

This sounds just like a game devised for the devils and the deviletts, and it’s almost as bad as Marriage At First Sight.  Who does that?  The foolish.  You don’t know these people or their convictions, and this is almost or as dangerous as Hitch Hiking.  You just don’t do certain things if you value your life.  If you want a companion, seek Jesus Christ, then ask Him for one.  What is to be will be.

Am I Missing Something?

Didn’t the Bible tell us; Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?  1st Corinthians 6:14  KJV

I know there are a lot more variables than what I just mentioned, but they should give us a clear idea about how to handle things if we just Stop, Look and Listen before we do anything by putting God First in our thoughts, efforts, and deeds.  This is a good way keep our own foot, out of our own mouth and behind.

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory, and it is in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen!

    Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had
    to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like
    yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to blogging but I do
    write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
