Solomon was reputed to be the wisest of the wise, blessed with incredible wisdom, and he built a glorious temple to which be brought pagan wives. Soon, he was worshipping their gods and lost the peace and joy of his early years on the throne. He ruled over the people ("If a ruler's anger rises against you, do not leave your post' calmness can lay great errors to rest." Bible). He'd had his share of bad days when his servants disobeyed his wishes. Misunderstandings happen, but they can also be corrected.
There is nothing worse than a gossip, 'friend' or otherwise. It is written that "a gossip separates close friends." If you've ever had someone to gossip against you, you know that people just can't resist talking about one another. "True gossip" is never the 'truth.' It is best to keep self-control when others try to gossip, so as not to break up a friendship.
Sometimes, when we've endured a great trial or sickness, we come to the realization that we are here for a purpose. When I had my reprieve from death five years, one person said I was here to bear my testimony. It was a bad doctor who told me I would die then; now it is a bad doctor who did not get me the care I needed for the same serious condition who is letting me expire." We feel life is not fair, but it is -- it's wonderful to be alive and hurt; the pain makes you know you are alive. We were each created for a special purpose, and perhaps mine has been reached. I've certainly had a ball getting involved in city government the past four years. Thanks, Jack.
"And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two." It's not always easy to go that extra mile, but you will find the end result is worth all of the exertion and heat exhaustion. Because I did such on the 4th, I learned on the 5th about my serious medical dilemma and hopefully have found out in time. Had I not walked that mile to Jeff's house and the mile back to the bus stop, I would never have known -- in time.
We are told to 'love your enemies.' That's the last thing I ever thought I would be able to do. It's not easy' it's tough. Even when others lose patience with something we are intent on and erupt in a bad way, we can love them anyway and do our best. One thing I have never been able to do is forgive. We have to learn to forgive or the hurt and insult will fester and cause physical damage to our hearts and soul. We settle for what Dietrich Bonhoeffer called "cheap grace." Jonah was stuck in the belly of a whale and he was spewed out on dry land when he begged for forgiveness for worshipping false idols. It is good to remember that forgiveness is there for the asking.
Todays's world is chuck full of frustration; when you get to the end of your rope and find nowhere else to go, know in your mind and heart that there is always hope. You may not agree with others' attitudes or actions, but treat them with love and respect. It can work miracles. And I need one right about now!
