Charity Begins At Home! 11/29/15
 
 
 
 
Micah 6:8 (KJV)
8  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
 
The holiday season is hard on any and all Type A folks!!!!
 
                                                 Type A

The theory describes Type A individuals as ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status-conscious, sensitive, impatient, take on more than they can handle, want other people to get to the point, anxious, proactive, and concerned with time management.

People with Type A personalities are often high-achieving "workaholics", push themselves with deadlines, and hate both delays and ambivalence.[4]

In his 1996 book dealing with extreme Type A behavior,
Type A Behavior: Its Diagnosis and Treatment , Friedman suggests that dangerous Type A behavior is expressed through three major symptoms:

(1) free-floating hostility, which can be triggered by even minor incidents;

 (2) time urgency and impatience, which causes irritation and exasperation usually described as being "short-fused"; and

(3) a competitive drive, which causes stress and an achievement-driven mentality.

The first of these symptoms is believed to be covert and therefore less observable, while the other two are more overt. [5]


As a Type A person, I find it hard to impossible to RELAX-I want to "DO SOMETHING!!!!!!"


When I awoke this morning, (ditto), I AGAIN wanted to ACCOMPLISH something, even though residing in a holiday environment.


I have resumed practicing my guitar and taking vocal lessons but that is and was not enough for a Type A personality.


God spoke to me in the wee hours of this morn and showed me where I can improve:


Micah 6:8 (KJV)
 
8  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is  good; and what doth the LORD  require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?


I/WE can SEEK "TO DO JUSTLY, AND TO LOVE MERCY, AND TO WALK HUMBLY WITH THY GOD!!!"


And that, dear friends, MUST begin at home!!!!


SMILE!! WHY is it that WE shower and shave, put on good smelling odors, and present our best foot to those OUTSIDE our homes than in?????


WE are too often more pleasant and kinder to total strangers than those closest to OUR hearts.


1 Timothy 5:8 (KJV)
 
8
 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.  


The absolute HARDEST place to be a Christian is INSIDE our own homes!!!


Do WE too often "HIDE FROM OUR OWN FLESH!!??"


Isaiah 58:7 (KJV)
 
7   Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?


Is it not true "that those who deserve love the least need it the most?"


1 Peter 3:10 (KJV)
 
10
 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:  


How HARD it is to "REFRAIN HIS TONGUE FROM EVIL!"


TODAY, may each of US practice:


I/WE can SEEK "TO DO JUSTLY, AND TO LOVE MERCY, AND TO WALK HUMBLY WITH THY GOD!!!"


TODAY, may WE that DO "have therefore OPPORTUNITY, let US do GOOD unto ALL men, ESPECIALLY unto them who are of the HOUSEHOLD of faith!!"


Galatians 6:10 (KJV)
 
10  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men , especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
 
CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME!!!
 
GOD BLESS YOU TODAY!!
