THE MOUTH TRAP?

THE MOUTH TRAP?

Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about themselves, and small people talk about others.   Tom C. Maxwell

It’s not about what you say, it’s about how you say it.  I have heard that quote many, many times and didn’t know there is the second sentence until recently.  It’s not about what comes out of your mouth, it’s about the reason behind your words

Oftentimes, I found part of the reason we get beside ourselves, bringing out the worst in our personalities is an attempt to protect ourselves from outside embarrassments which we created, or the personal business we are unwilling to share that exposed us anyway.  Go figure, the truth has a way of surfacing and its something we all do.  We talk too much.

It seems as if what we call small talk is larger than we think; Talking behind a friend’s back and thinking the person we are talking to is loyal to our messiness while thinking no one notices or even care we’re backstabbers.  Big Mistake, some just go along with your program to keep you in check, and out of their business.

Bad business is not a secret business, it’s the work of the Devil and his agendas includes ruining by exposure.  You got caught!

The truth is whoever you are or whom you choose to be It’s What’s in your heart that will spill out of your mouth and expose you; The Good, The Bad, or The Ugly. 

Most of us know Loose Lips Sinks Ships, the thing is, most of the lost cargo (information), good or bad, was not what someone else dumped, it’s was your mouth and actions that caused the ship to list ( lean to the side).  Fake News, a bad judgment, ETC… is the types of action that’s Sink Ships.  Especially on a clear day when out of the blue your Heart says things it shouldn’t.  

Yep, the heart will Rat you out.  

The Ex-Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson warns us with good reason to guard our mind and mouths, especially when talking about what’s next.  Everyone has a plan “till they get punched in the mouth.  I believe that to be true, but, what’s important is not to fight physically or with words.

Well we know that’s not going to happen, so if we have too, be sure to fight with the right enemy.

Having said that, I believe fighting will never solve our problems, just like I understand fighting may be our last option if peace isn’t established, so oftentimes it can’t be ruled out.  Just so you know no one ever wins when in combat, because the dead will never know the outcome leaving no winners in my opinion on both sides.

Anyway, cowards are afraid to be on the frontline when it comes to speaking out about the truth, especially when strong people are involved, so they pick on those who cannot defend themselves by telling lie after lie while spreading the blame on others.  Hey, it doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure this one out, DUD.  Cowards are too weak to face The Real Enemy, which in most cases is themselves.

I know its hard not to lie, but, it’s harder to admit that most of what we say is more than likely, untrue, whether it’s an assumption or a point of view.  Matthew 12:36 warns us, But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give an account the day of judgment. 

Did you know, Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinions?  Henry David Thoreau, in other words, our private thoughts are the worse and our spoken words have the power to condemn.  Watch that Big Mouth!    1

From what I understand, the World is governed by opinion, potty mouth and all, and in my opinion, the Mouth Trap (Having the inability to Shut Up) proves that sometimes the things that come from the mouth are mortifying.  Natasha Lyonne

Natasha just gave us one good reason for why we need that shutoff valve we talked about.  And since we already know actions speak louder than words, it is the action we need to prove our worth and to prove our words can be trusted.  Let’s not forget the importance and trustworthiness we are seeking are the front-runners to be proven.

For the ones that don’t have a shut up/cut off valve, talk doesn’t determine your success, life and death lie in the power of the tongue, and if you ever get tired of all the crap that can come out of your mouth, take into account talking is overrated; what we need is fewer mouths and more insightful minds! 

Don’t be a fool because you’re stuck in your ways!  Open your mind, not your mouth, and remember If talking is cheap, then being silent must be expensive, unfortunately, it seems as if most can’t afford to buy it.

FYI: It’s been said and proven that talk can take down the mightiest of giants, and it has been proven we are very capable of talking ourselves into a good thing just to talk our way right out.  In others words, It’s who you know that will get your feet in the door. It’s what you know that will keep your feet in the door.  Juvenal

The moral of the post is; Don’t talk, just act. Don’t say, just show. Don’t promise, just prove.  

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory!

DID YOU KNOW # 31 RIGHT IS RIGHT?

YIELD NOT TO TEMPTATION!

Knowledge of God’s Word is a bulwark (protection) against deception, temptation, accusation, even persecution.  Edwin Louis Cole

A temptation is just another name for the Devil, and he is following our every move, taking note of all our personal desires; offering things that are “Too good to be true.”

Yield Not To Temptation!  Don’t get caught up in the desires of your flesh?

BEWARE of weak moments; for out of them, some may never recover.  Stay away from coveting (wishing for) things that are not yours.  And if you are not interested in the rules or consequences about the things you desire, you can bet the Devil is in the details, you may be caught up.

We can really create a stench when bathing in our vanities.

Satan knows when it comes to our flesh getting what it wants, we are not above telling a little white lie, cheating someone, stealing whenever we can, killing one another; often over a pair of tennis shoes, or creating false god’s and more.

What better time than now to reinstate our resolve to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ?  That action alone may get us the desires of our heart, eliminating the need to step on or over others.

Jesus Christ promised if you Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Psalms 37:4  

Now is the time to be the Person of Our Words.  Give up the Um-A-Jumbo.    Who knows, some of us are awarded second chances.  Even the ones we don’t believe deserve them, but that’s not our call.  Mind your own business.

For those who need a little more, an extra push, what better time than now; The beginning of a New Year?  

Don’t be the one who cling to that same ole  “Um-A-Gonna Attitude”  in 2016..  That’s just who I am, don’t work because, the um-a-gonna’s is a lazy negligent excuse; sometimes a straight out lie.  We know there are exceptions, still there are quite a few who never even try to get out of the gate..

The Um-A-Gonna’s, and its first cousin, I”ll do it tomorrow, have never finished a single task.  Well, for all I know, not in my lifetime.

The Bible tells us in John 15:5: You can do nothing without me.  KJV   So far that verse has proven to be true; at least in my case.  If we do not obey the Laws of God, coupled with all talk and no action, few will get the results they desire.

Matthew 26:41 warns us to: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

In 1868, Horatio R. Palmer, an author, blessed us with the Gospel song Yield Not to Temptation.  The words he penned are some of the to best to reflex my meaning as a whole, and it’s far simpler to understand than anything I could have authored, especially for starting out on the right foot, in 2016.

Yield Not to Temptation!

Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin; Each vict’ry will help you some other to win; Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue; Look ever to Jesus, He’ll see you through.

Refrain: Ask the Savior to help you, Comfort, strengthen, and keep you; He is willing to aid you, He will carry you through.

Shun evil companions, bad language disdain, God’s name hold in rev’rence, nor take it in vain; Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true; Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

To him that o’ercometh, God giveth a crown, Through faith we will conquer, though often cast down; He who is our Savior, our strength will renew; Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.   Horatio R. Palmer  (Public Domain)

I Can Testify!   Although time don’t always heal, a change of heart can be the start of an appeal.

God is Good!  It’s in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen!
