2 Timothy 2:16
But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. (KJV)
Profanity and bluster: Attempts by a person to exhibit, verbally, what they lack physically or mentally (Psychology 101). A person confident in themselves and who they are does not need to lower their esteem with swearing and bravado. It is strictly for shock effect and a show of power they wish they had. True power belongs to only One. Recognizing that power leads to humility. Humility leads to godliness. Godliness leads to an eternal life with our heavenly Father in His coming kingdom.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives.. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit, which lives within us, show us how we may communicate with others without feeling the need to offend. Give us the confidence and self-esteem that comes with knowing we are the children of the most almighty God. Show us how to ready ourselves to join You in Your coming heavenly kingdom.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
