Good Advice

www.bible.com/72/jas.1.19.hcsb

You want to get along in life? Be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. Good advice. Listen first, but then take your time in your response. And even longer in your emotional response. Make sure you are angry about the right things.

This has been proven true again in the Jussie Smollett case, a man who paid others to perpetrate a “hate” crime ion him so that he can call attention to the plight of gay black men, a plight that in his case was self-inflicted. Many rushed to speak and defend him, only to have egg on their face when the truth came out. Others expressed great anger at He MAGA-hat wearing Trump crowd for fomenting this kind of hate, only to discover that the only hate involved was Smollett himself against whites and straight people. Those who took their time, waited for all the facts to come out before speaking, were proven wise. Wow. God’s word is good advice.

So today another woman has come out saying that Trump kissed her against her will. Hmmm. Maybe I will wait on that until more facts come out.

God bless you today, and take God’s advice. You won’t regret it.
