Stop Being Dumb

Sometimes empathy and sympathy aren’t what’s needed. Sometimes what people need to hear is:

 And a little blunt.

And a little blunt.

Stop being dumb.

*****************

You know that:

relationship

habit

grudge

lifestyle

resentment

hostility

spending

time wasting

procrastination

secret thing

is killing you. On the inside.

******************

Stop.

Stop it.

Stop rationalizing.

Stop making excuses.

********************

Make the phone call.

Cut up the credit card.

Put up the mental firewall against your own meanness.

Say no.

Throw it away.

Turn it off.

End the relationship.

Make the effort. With every ounce of determination in you.

Today.

Now.

*********************

And if you’ve prayed and prayed and prayed, perhaps this is the answer to your prayer:

Stop doing wrong. Learn to do good. Isaiah 1:16b, 17a (NCV)

If we’ll get out of our own way, stop being our own worst enemy, God is actually able to work.

Said with love. From experience.

What do you think?
