The above shows that whatever comes out of a man/woman  defiles him/her.


Matthew 15:18 – “However, things proceeding out of the mouth

come out of the heart, and those things defile a man/woman.”


We, at all times, should be clothed with right attitudes and gracious speech.

A thoughtless word, untimely spoken, drives ripples of hated, anger and

bitterness and it can never be taken back.  Unfortunately mouthing a zillions

of  “I’m sorry” might not mend the tightest of bonds as the respect and trust

and love has been somewhat violated.  Words uttered can never be retrieved

to be buried anywhere, though being forgiven for the thoughtlessness of it.

Henceforth, we should always ‘think before we speak’ as in Proverbs 15:4,

King Solomon quotes that “The calmness of the tongue is a tree of life, but

the distortion in it means a breaking down in the spirit”.

WHY IS “HUMILITY” AN INGREDIENT IN WISDOM?

  
 

Humility generates truth and objectivity.


Humility is freedom. Your personality expresses

itself in an organic, internally generated, and

more real way.


Humility is pleasure. Arrogance is pain.


Humility enables you to embrace others.


Humility deepens your relationship with God.


Until you know what you are willing to die for,

you have not yet begun to live.


 
 


RAIN ON ME


Holy Spirit of the L-rd, rain down on me
Let me now receive Your gifts abundantly
Let them be to serve my G-d eternally
Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on me

Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on this place
As we enter in Your presence to seek Your face
We will come before Your throne singing Your praise
Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on me

Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit rain on me
Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit rain on me

Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on Israel
Prophesies and dreams and visions
Young and old to tell
Let them call upon Yeshua and drink from the well
Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on me

Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on the earth
Let the people hear Your Word and see what it’s worth
Let the world receive Your Spirit and the Rebirth
Holy Spirit of the L-rd rain on me

Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit rain on me
Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit rain on me

If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run –
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!


*** Rudyard Kipling ***



“If one is patient in a moment of anger,

one would escape a hundred days of sorrow.”


“Anger of the mind is poison to the soul.”


“When a man is wrong and won’t admit it,
he always gets angry.”


There are severe consequences and ramifications if we let our self-control

run rampant; so we need to learn how to control the emotions of the flesh,

the weakness in every soul. Anger is detrimental to our emotional and

spiritual well-being and do remember that anger is a friendly “sister”

trait to the Devil.  If we let anger simmer inside of us every time that

we’re being provoked, intimidated, wrongly rebuked or accused or

even rightly reprimanded due to our own faults; and stop to think

rationally for a moment before we fly off the handle to fight back for

the sake of  perceived rightful justification, we are bound to overstep

into boundaries of no return and be on the precipice of doing something

that we’ll regret for a lifetime. So, cut off the wrong and bad attitudes

of pride, anger and rebellion and not let it take root for the Devil is

always waiting on the sidelines for opportunities and moves in

for the kill to plot our downfall and thus when we are so dispirited

with our failures in life, we’ll start to lose our faith in God.

Anger nullifies all the humility and love that personifies us as a loving

child of God.


“When you are caught in the heavy rains of anger,
open the umbrella of mind, take refuge under the
roof of reason!”


Do not turn into “HULK” all the time,
it doesn’t pay …in the end.


The price is too high for our loss of self-control; whatever situation we

find ourselves in, from bad habits to anger to lust to envy to fear and not

forgetting arrogance and pride, we should have a gauge to measure our

self-control always and it’s got to be kept at bay and checked because our

Almighty True God JEHOVAH in the heavens above is never pleased

with that and we’ll definitely be admonished and pruned in a manner

worthy in God’s eyes.
