It is so easy to identify the weaknesses of others while mirroring the imagery of what’s frowned on. Two days ago, I listened to one of the teachings of Apostle Joshua Selman, Founder & CEO of Eternity Network International, as he expounded on the dynamics of Godliness within the scope of the expressed teachings in the Bible, I became ashamed. I saw myself in what he taught. I noticed what was wrong with others; I was flawed too. The book of Proverbs 4:7, it is stated: “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom and in all your getting get understanding.” As I reflect on the coming days and the real meaning behind the season, it humbles me to look more within to become better able to relate and understand how to be what I desire of others. I am not naive to believe I will become perfect, but there is room for growth. So, my pledge beginning today is to start a fast-starting with my words. In private and in public, if I don’t have something to say positively about anyone, even if they are a blight on society, I will be quiet about it. It’s not my place for critical assessment because I, too, have come up short. Sin isn’t measured; sin is sin! No little sin or big sin. I am staying off the public platform in sharing any disapproval of anyone. In this season of unpredictability and ever-present revealing of God, in the spirit of the celebration of Jesus’ birth, real honor starts with being in His will. Words are life, and may this holiday, the light and life of His word, serve us well by being kinder to each other, starting with our words. I wish you a safe and happy holiday!
