Morning Prayer, Friday, September 20, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: BLIND GUIDES
Father God, help me to use wisdom when listening to and following other people. Amen
"Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.”.” Matthew 15:14
"If you really believe in yourself, no one can mis-lead you." In life we meet people who are charismatic and quite convincing. As someone once said, “They can sell a snake, snake oil.” We also meet people who are opinionated and bossy. They love telling other folk what to do. I can remember years ago when I wasn’t so confident in me, that I listened to and did what these bossy types would tell me because I didn’t want to upset them. I did not have the confidence in me to stand up for myself. A lot of our young people today are that way and surprising enough, so are some adults. Don’t allow someone else to dictate which direction you turn or how far you can go. Be your own boss! Of course, God is the head of every man but behind God, there is you. People may try to push you to do what they think or say, but know this, you do have the right of first refusal. I used to also think not saying anything to people that thought they knew how my life should go until my dad one day told me “Speak up for yourself. If you let people push you around you will spend your life being a doormat.” He was right you know. When you sit back all the time and never defend yourself that stuff marinates inside you and then one day you explode. Even Jesus got angry some times. Not saying to go ballistic or anything but do defend yourself and your rights. Do know your worth in this life and at least stand up for that.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
