Yesterday I was reading posts on WordPress, and was very accurately and specifically convicted by what I found at “Raising Zion” where Nehemiah Zion had posted a scripture from Proverbs about what God hates. Serious business, right?
The scripture quoted was Proverbs 6:16-19, and you all should go read it. I mean, these are abominations to our Godly Father, so probably we should avoid these behaviors; yes, we should.
I was convicted by what was named at the end of the list, “And one who sows discord among brethren.” I realized immediately that I do this all the time. Having a negative attitude (that I’m correcting earnestly) and a snarky, sassy, smart mouth places me in the category of one who “Sows discord among the brethren.” Con-victed. You have got to love the Proverbs, and also to read them regularly. I was so thankful for this reminder that opened my eyes to the seriousness of my sassy britches. I mean, Our Precious Lord hates this behavior.
As I continue on my journey, I’ll stop talking badly about my work supervisors, politicians, smart people and scientists that always do seem to know better, as they often do. Complaining with my coworkers just isn’t nice, and it has got to stop.
On the other hand, “You’ve got to fight for your right to party,” as the Beastie Boys said. I’m going to try to initiate peaceful and God-loving parties, and also to be sweet to everybody. I pray that we all might be united in one accord these days, and do well with one another. Positive parties, socially distanced.
