There Is No Excuse For Bad Language

Bad Language says a lot about you as a person. Bad language shows a lack of knowledge for a better word. If you say a bad word once you are likely to repeat it and you will most likely say the word in a very inappropriate setting. If you keep saying bad language you will tend to lose respect from people and lose customers at your business.

If I was told to use bad language to sell a product I would tell them I am not the person you want for that. If you cannot sell a product on its own merits then it is not worth selling. I would lose all respect for a company that would stoop so low as to use bad language to sell their products.

I grew up in a household that did not use bad language and I very proud of that. Years ago if bad language was used you would get your mouth washed out with soap. I think we need a little more soap today. One day a five year old called me a dirty name that she had to have heard her parents say. If I am reading a book where every other word is bad I close the cover and start reading another book.

It is time to bring back old fashioned values and clean up the words that come out of the mouth of  young children and adults. It is our job as parents to set values and rules for our children to follow. We never heard God swear so we should know it is not acceptable behavior n any shape or form.

Be careful what you say as it will follow you into your work place and your home and into other settings. Use well thought out words to express yourself and impress others. Bad language does not impress anyone and it certainly does not please God. Always think before you speak.

Be Happy For Others

If someone wins a prize feel happy for them and congratulate them. If someone wins a contest  be happy for them and not jealous. If you see a new car in your friends driveway do not be jealous over it. You have no idea of all the work they had to do in order to buy the new car in their driveway or what sacrifices they made in order to buy their car. Be grateful for another persons accomplishments.

Be glad that your friends and neighbors are able to afford the things that they have and be truly happy for them. Do not think that things come easy for people you have no idea of what they have had to go through in their life to get to where they are now. Do not covet as this is one of the Ten Commandments.

God is happy for each and everyone of us. We are all stewards to spread Gods good works. God is not jealous or boastful and we as good stewards should live by his example. Be appreciative for what you have in life and do not go after others that you think are less deserving. Do not judge anyone for God is the only judge of man.

I have heard people talk about someones health. They will say they never seem to get sick and they seem to be very jealous of them. If you really cared about someone or really loved them you would never want them to get sick. We will all be sick eventually and die. I am glad for all the healthy people in my life and I hope they are filled with Gods many blessings everyday. I pray for those that need the gentle healing touch of God to strengthen them.

Do not be boastful, jealous, covet my neighbors possessions or judge others. Be happy for for your neighbors, friends and others in your life. God is always happy for you.

Think Outside Of Your Comfort Zone

If you always stay in your comfort zone you will never know what you truly could have accomplished. Push yourself to discover and learn and experience something new each and everyday that you are here on earth. Dare to be different than the rest of the herd. If you do not excel from the rest of the herd you will get trampled by the herd. Sometimes it takes lots of elbow grease, blood, sweat and tears to get to the top of your game.

Life is not always easy and is somewhat like a roller coaster. We all have our ups and downs in life and we do not know when they are going to happen to us. Don’t let one failure in your life be a perpetual failure for your whole life. God has a plan for each and everyone of us and our job is to listen when God speaks to us in subtle ways.

Be bold and be daring once in awhile for you may be pleasantly surprised by what you just accomplished. Be bound and determined to prove people wrong that have said you can’t possibly succeed at that. Determination is hard to overcome. Determination will take you to the top of your game. The old saying goes “slow and steady wins the race ” which is very true as far as you keep advancing forward with your life and your dreams.

Try something new. Start a hobby which may turn into a full time job. Travel abroad and learn about your heritage and where your family roots started. Time is very precious so do not waste a single moment of it living in the past. You cannot change the past but we can all help make the future brighter and better for everyone.

Take baby steps to begin with and than take large and bold and daring steps to be the ultimate you. Set high goals for yourself that will enrich the lives of others for many generations to come. Always make positive changes in the world. Just one thing you do today could help many people reach their dreams also.

Misrepresentation

Leviticus  6 : 1 – 2

And the Lord Spake unto Moses , Saying ,

If a Soul sin, and commit a trespass against the Lord, and lie unto his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship , or in a thing taken away by violence , or hath deceived his neighbor

I  have purchased items over the years that have been misrepresented to me my by their seller. They have said that the item has never been used and when you open he package you can truly see that the item has been used. I generally have to write a letter to the seller in order to get my money back. It is a sin if someone misrepresents something to you for financial gain or otherwise. I will never go back to a business that has misrepresented there product to me.

I purchased a SUV and when I got home and looked it over I discovered it was not AWD it was FWD and it had a smaller motor in it. I finally got the vehicle I had wanted with the help of friends and a signed statement from one of the main sales people. I ended up with a SUV that was one year newer and that had AWD. It took one whole year to get the SUV that I had purchased. They did not only hurt me by misrepresenting the SUV but they committed a trespass  against the Lord.

Let the buyer beware. There will always be deceptive people in the world unfortunately that will always try to fatten their bank acct. at your expense.  Do your homework and know everything possible about the item you are intending to purchase. Make sure every single little detail of your purchase is in writing and  signed by the seller and then you will have proof to back you up if necessary.

Remember no one ever deceives the Lord he knows what you are doing every waking hour of the day.

Haste Makes Waste

If you attack a project quickly and do not put  a lot of thought into it you may end up with an absolute mess. Have an idea of what you want to accomplish in one day and stick to it and you will be surprised by how much you can actually get done in one day. Fortitude and gratitude will take you far in life. If you do half a job it will show that you only did half a job. Employers want someone who is reliable and will stick with a project and get it completed in a timely fashion. Do your job to the best of your ability and do your job with a compassionate, loving, grateful and caring heart and you will reap the rewards for a job well done.

Take time to research a product or service before you sign on the dotted line or you may live with regrets for along time to come. If  you repair something for someone treat the project exactly how you would repair the item for your own use. Check on contractors and service providers before you hire them or you may be in for a rude awakening. There are a lot of fly by night repair people in the world so do your homework before you get taken to the cleaners.

I had a roofer once that hardly used any nails to hold down the shingles and the valleys were cut wrong also and I had to re – roof  again in 8 years. Haste definitely makes waste and also waste your time and your money. Do not take shortcuts with any repairs as this will leed to larger and more expensive repairs down the road. If you do a job do it like you would want it done in your house as no wants a hasty job done with a lot of waste and waste of time. Life waits for no man so do not waste their precious moments on earth and always do a job that others will be proud of for years to come.

Violence

Hosea     4: 2

By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they breakout, and blood toucheth blood.

There are violent video games that our kids may watch today. A Mother had a two year old boy that was acting out. She took her son to her Doctor and he asked her  how her son spent his days. She said he enjoyed playing video games. His favorite game was a game that you kept shooting the heads off of men. Her Doctor told her no wonder her son was acting out and behaving badly. Her Doctor told her to not let her son play those violent video games anymore. Her sons behavior improved very quickly after he stopped playing the violent video games.

 

Our movies and TV programs are always showing someone with violent behavior such as shooting, swearing, stealing,someone committing  adultery, and lying. This is one of the reasons we have so much crime. Our children grow up watching this inappropriate behavior and unfortunately they have become what they  have watched for years on TV and in the movies. The cartoons for little children have gotten very violent over the years. They cannot distinguish between make believe and what is actually real at this young age. They may shoot someone and think they will come back to life again like some of the cartoon characters do. A young child does not understand or comprehend death yet. Do not let your children watch violent movies or TV programs they will think that the violent person is cool and a hero and follow their terrible pattern of behavior.

We are always reading about shootings and crimes in the newspaper. We read about robberies, stabbings, shootings, and much more. It is our jobs as parents, and educators, and good stewards to lead the young people down the right road in life.

In The Pursuit Of Happiness

What does it take to be happy in life ? Happiness has a different meaning to various people. What makes one person happy will not necessary make another person happy.

Some people think happiness can be had by the various things they own such as a fancy car, luxury home, antiques and what ever they can acquire with their money. Money and possessions won’t give you happiness for long. Money does not give one happiness it actually controls the person that has the money. The person worships his money and that is all he worships as he tries to amaze a larger fortune throughout his entire life. Everyday the money owns him and controls him into making more and more money that brings heartache and pain and robs him of his time on earth for a more worthy cause.

 

You find happiness by spending your time with family and friends and supporting worthy causes in your community.  Gather yourself around like minded people and share your life experiences with others. Belong to groups that lift you up, attend church regularly, read your devotions, read your Bible and treat yourself now and then. I love visiting with people as I can learn a lot of valuable information and life lessons by my conversations with others.

Eating out, going for a drive, or taking a short vacation now and then makes me very happy.  Spread Gods good works where ever and however you can each and every single day of your life. Reach out to people as it will help you and them along the bumpy roads in life. Be the person that people like to be around for support and comfort in their life.

Happiness is how you make it and how you live your life. Sometimes you find happiness where you least expect to find it. A complete stranger can give you absolute happiness or perhaps even save your life. Happiness is being around people you love and people that love you unconditionally and always knowing that God is always by your side.

God Bless you and may you have many happy and fulfilled days in your life that are memorable and enjoyable.

Saving Your Soul

Sometimes its take a major illness or catastrophe for us to get closer to God. We do not use our own strength we use the strength of God to enrich our soul. Some people our connected to God by reading daily devotions and praising God for the many blessings in their life. A friend reminded me to mention this.

When we are strong and well we tend to live or get by with our own strength. We are on automatic pilot and the true pilot in our life is God. God is the one that can save your soul. Thank God everyday for your health, family, friends and for giving you your first breath of life and each and every breath you take while you are on Earth.

Keep the sabbath day by reading your Bible, attending church, watching a church service on TV or on a social media platform. Thank God for the week you had and how he blessed your life. Observe nature and its beauty that God made for all of us to enjoy. Spend time with friends and family on Sunday and think of how lucky you are to have each other in your life.

When I was sick I got closer to God as he was my strength and my refuse. God gave me strength to endure and took my life in a new direction. I became a lay minister at my church  and I visit with people in the rest home or assisted living. I love visiting with them and we enrich each others life in many wonderful and outstanding ways. I enjoy writing Inspirations with Laura and sharing them with others.

Do not live on automatic pilot as it will only take you so far in life. God is our pilot and our guide to a religious life that will strengthen and save our soul for its final journey to Heaven.

Hebrews 4 : 12

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing, even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Galatians 1 : 3

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ

Sitting On The Fence With Opinions

If we did not share are opinions about things nothing would ever change. We are each entitled to our own opinions but we must listen to and accept other peoples opinions. Some people are much more knowledgeable on a certain subject and they have a vast array of good opinions they can share with others. Some opinions may fix a major problem or make a product safer and easier to use in the future.

When you share your opinion with others do it in a nice manner that won’t upset the person. Some people get stuck on their opinion and no else is ever right. Try to convince them there is always room for improvements and changes no matter how slight they may be. New furniture, roofing, carpet, paint, etc. in your home may be expensive but it is necessary to maintain your home so it does not need to have everything fixed at once.

If everyone just sat on the fence and kept as quiet as a church mouse no new inventions or any changes would ever occur.  Opinions make the stock market go up and down and decide who our next president of the USA will be. Opinions make or break businesses and they make or break the sell of merchandise.

Use your voice and speak up when necessary. You will need several Doctors opinions if you have a serious condition or surgery coming up. Never ever rely on just on persons opinion. Get all of the facts about the manner at hand before yo go through with something you may regret in the long run. Being totally informed is what any person should want before proceeding with any important situation.

 

If you sit on the fence and you do not like the outcome you only have yourself to blame. Always remember to speak up because no one else will do it for you. You determine your own destiny and your own outcome in life by taking care to exam and understand all the facts that are presented to you and taking opinions from many educated and informed people that are specialist in their particular field. Never give up until you get the answers you need.
