As my hubby was driving me to work on yesterday we were listening to a song by a friend of mine (Wylecia Crayton) and the name of the song is Let’s go back to the old time way where we use to live according to God’s word where there should be no envy, no jealousy, no strife and when we helped someone didn’t talk about it or throw what we did for someone back up in their faces.
So that’s what I want to talk about today. Why is it that when we become angry with someone we want to throw up what we did for them? Why is this the first thing that come out of our mouths? Could it be that you do this to hurt the person and to make you look good? Or is it because you did it for a show and for something to talk about? Or perhaps you are just nasty, vile and wicked? Reminding people of what you did for them shows them how low you can go and that you didn’t do it from your heart and forget the age old excuse by saying that I said it because I was mad, no you said it because it was in your heart and that’s how you roll (The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it Jeremiah 17:9)? !Tell me how do you think the person feels when you spit out that poisonous venom of that reminder which should have been confidential? Tell me what do you gain by blabbing your big mouth? Shouldn’t what we do for someone be done in secret for as not to embarrass that person? Have you ever thought about that persons feelings? No you are too busy boasting and broadcasting what you did because you felt that person did you wrong and maybe they did but it doesn’t give you a reason to throw it up in their faces see it’s because you are selfish and you’re willingly trying to hurt that person that you say you love. But guess what love is patient, kind, gentle, it does not hurt, betray, envy, self seek or keep record of someone’s wrong nor does it remind someone what you have done, love doesn’t dishonor or embarrass, it’s not mean, rude, hateful, proud or boastful and regardless how angry you become you should not sin and maliciously hurt anyone’s feelings.
People listen to me carefully when a person says this to you believe them because the bible state that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45) and what goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth that is what defiles them (Matthew 15:11)!
So here’s a clarion call for all that like to remind others of what you do for them, stop it and stop it now before the tables turn.
For as he/she thinketh in his/her heart so is he/she so (Proverbs 23:7). So Let’s Go Back To The Old Time Way Where We Use To Live According to God’s Word and helping those in need without throwing it up in their faces and blabbing and broadcasting it on CNN!
Forever His Servant,
