So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.
-Galatians 5:16

“Christ told his disciples not to be anxious about tomorrow, but he never said not to consider tomorrow. Intelligent problem solving demands careful consideration of the future effects of present solutions.”
R.C. Sproul

One of our primary purposes in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.

Remember that Please, Thank You and I’m Sorry are still magic words. What happened to Yes Ma’am, No Ma’am” and Yes Sir, No Sir?

Don’t be a drama magnet. Drama does not just walk into your life. Either you create it, invite it, or associate with it. Don’t complain about it if you are the one driving the drama bus. Get off the bus at the next stop.

Do I look more like Jesus or more like the world? It’s easy to just follow the crowd. You either live a self directed life or a God directed life. Your choice. There is no in between.

The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off. Be yourself. Be Happy.

Social Media tip of the day: Much of social media can be seen as the ‘News of me.’ It’s not so much a platform for connecting and sharing as it is a platform for advertising the idea and image of yourself you want to portray to others. It’s easy to pretend to be someone you’re not on social media.
Have the wisdom to show restraint. –Proverbs 23:4

Is my life all about ME or HIM?

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.
Matthew 7:12

The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.
-Ernest Hemingway

Definition of Challenge: Demanding, testing one’s determination, willpower, abilities, skills and resources. A call to fight, as a battle.

Entitlement is a delusion built on self-centeredness and laziness. Nobody ever said that life was fair. Deal with it! Don’t compare your life to other peoples life. Live your own. Keep Calm and Mind Your Own Business…

The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.
