|This Lovely Victorian Little Girl Hangs In My Pink Craft Room|
It was mine as A Little Girl...
What is Precious to you?
We use the word love so much for everything in our conversations
We even love our children, and we love our husbands.
What kind of love is this?
Do we love everything the same?
We need to re-think in proportions of attention and affections!
But when do we look at something God has given us, and look upon it
I personally do not want to feel the same about everything!
There are people that just rank a bit higher...
Who is number #1
As this should be the first one in line;
Your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ!
And I hope you see the value in having your Husband number #2
But, hopefully that is a given in your life.
But I have been looking at something else that we must LOVE;
I was studying a scripture this last week;
May I share it with you?
I need to ask a question firstly
Are You Stupid?
Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge,
But he who hates correction is stupid.
I was taught as a young lady from my older brother this word of wisdom;
If you cannot take constructive criticism, then you will never be wise.
When was the last time someone (anyone) was trying to correct you;
And you really listened and told them thank you!
And really implemented it in your life?
We can all be stupid...
~By not loving instruction~
Or, we can realize that we are not Miss Smarty Pants
You do not know everything...
We need to know the wisdom from above;
We need each other to train and give wise counsel to us!
I have heard the expression;
I know, I know...
Really, do you?
I think as Mothers, we would be so glad to know that our children were
Gleaning our words of wisdom that we share daily.
I think our Husbands would fall over if we responded to them after they told us
How to do something, with thanks honey, you're so smart!
How about when your Pastor reads a scripture and the Holy Spirit
Shows You the error of your thinking; and you quickly repent!
It seems to me that it is pretty easy to distinguish if
Do You love instruction?
Or do you know everything?
Shall we all call You Miss Smarty Pants?
If we are not teachable, we will perish in many ways
We must have a teachable spirit...
He who hates correction is stupid...
So the next time someone has a suggestion or a different way
Just stop and listen;
You just might learn something new!
Just for the record, I do remember my sister calling me;
Miss Smarty Pants;
I thought it was a compliment LOL
