SIMPLE QUESTION ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS

SIMPLE QUESTION OF WHY DO WE REALLY SAY CERTAIN THINGS

Simple as it may seem, but as we enter 2021 with 2020 in the rear view mirror, are the following thoughts are more important more now than ever?

Political correctness to me equals control by others to manipulate others disguised as kindness.

Self discipline of speech should I believe should come from self; pure and simple.

But, I do wonder sometimes why do we feel compelled to say certain things.

For example why will we soon see and hear people mock those who make new years resolutions?

Why do we feel compelled to use words like stupid or racist when responding to someone with a different view of the world??

Why do we bond with some one then feel the need to judge them to others when they are not there?

Why do we feel compelled to mock what some one puts on their social media, when that page or pages are theirs and you are the guest?

Why do we feel compelled to yell about privacy but yet mock those who have had theirs infringed?

Why do we feel compelled to judge others quality of life when their time on earth belongs to them?

Why are we so wired to wonder if I am writing about any one in particular rather then just absorbing the words?

Why do we not practice more what we preach?

I have no one in particular in mind with these questions, but rather all of us including me as a collective.

May God as you understand God to be, shine the warm glow of understanding and the courage to put forth grace to others.

HUMILITY, SERVICE AND GOD

In this week's REDMOND'S REVIEW, Darren shares his thoughts on CS Lewis's book, "Spirits in Bondage A Cycle of Lyrics."

Humility and Service

‘Humility’ is the book I review and it was written in 1895. It deals with just one subject, and oh, how that subject can be misinterpreted. It is twisted by those looking to manipulate you. Humility is called a weakness. It is just ignored.
This book was written by Andrew Murray and it is titled, Humility. Consciously, or otherwise, the personal relationship we have with Christ, as author Andrew Murray goes into great detail about, requires humility on our part. It enables us to be able to get close and focused in our relationship with God.
The word ‘humility’, has had many connotations and meanings throughout the ages. It is 180 degrees away from the word ‘pride’ which is often as well, used in many different forms, from many different meanings. From reading this work by Andrew Murray, I can simply define PRIDE to actually be fear, and HUMILITY to be confidence.

Pride and Fear

Pride  often times is fear masked as confidence. Humility is the complete opposite, it is a perfect trust that God loves us and wants the best for us. We cannot maximize ourselves, unless we know that we are here, but for the grace of God.
I am paraphrasing of course, we are reminded throughout this work, that it is only when we get quiet, non boastful, and non self-absorbed, that the real work of humility begins. Why boast and brag when you are  using nothing more than the talents that God has given you?
Humility is a quiet confidence because you are aware that you are loved by God. All that you have and that you will have, come from our creator. A understanding of that fills a person with a humble peace.
Remember, our savior chose to live a life of servitude, humble in nature and doing so with confidence, and no need for those around him to approve of his path in life.
For with humble kindness toward all and to our selves, the greatest of all, should be the one who serves the most.
This book is free to read in the public domain.
