Belittle Not


Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense,
    but a man of understanding remains silent.

Proverbs 11:12 ESV

We all do it.  Each of us has at some time or another cut someone down with words.  We hid it behind a joke and with a smile but none the less we belittle another.  Our spouse, kids, and friends are not immune.

Why?  Usually, because we hold some twisted belief that in cutting someone else down we elevate ourselves.

Foolish! By belittling others we reveal our on lack of sense.

A Call For Prayer for Our Nation

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—  for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (I Timothy 2:1-2)

Today, I call for prayer and unity for our nation.  The world we live in is much too dangerous and the problems much too enormous for one man or any government.  We need divine intervention and supernatural wisdom to guide us through these divisive and troubled times.  Let us pray for our new President and all our leaders. -Jim

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14
