Stay Out of the middle of a Quarrel

“Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears
is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own.”

Have you ever jumped into the middle of a quarrel and later realized it wasn’t your problem to solve? In the meantime maybe someone turned around and attacked you and you got hurt.

Wisdom comes when you know what is your responsibility to fix and what is not. People need to settle their own issues with each other. If you care about the individuals involved it’s not easy to stay out of the middle but it’s wisdom that protects you.

What is the Best Way to Help Someone?

When I did guest teaching this week, I had some students help each other in a 6th grade math class.

I reminded them, “Helping does not mean you do for them, you help them understand how to solve the math problem so they can do it for themselves. The person you’re helping needs to understand at this level in order to go to the next level.”

This is true of any helping situation.

We need to help people figure out and understand how to do things for themselves at whatever level they’re capable of instead of doing it for them.

Secret Power of Truth

Truth is like a vitamin to the soul.
Truth nourishes you, builds you up and strengthens you.
Truth exposes the lies you’ve believed.
Truth repeated daily helps you overcome negative thought patterns.
Truth sets you free and enables you to walk in freedom.

Think about the things that are true.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8(NIV)

Keys to Success ~ Diligence Leads to Profit

Have you ever bought a product personally or for your business that you thought would profit you but in the end it didn’t?

We’ve all had that experience.

An online promotion says you need to act by a certain time to take advantage of their offer and you make a hasty decision. You lose your time and money acting in haste and end up poorer for it.

In another scenario, you sign up for something legitimate but you’re not diligent about implementing what you bought.

King Solomon, one of the wisest men who ever lived,  made this observation.

You Don’t Have to Worry About Competition

When you know who you are and
What you have to offer
You don’t have to worry about competition
Because
No one can be who you are or
Can do it in the way you can do it
Even if others offer similar services
YOU are unique and special
You have a niche no one can fill

Wisdom For Every Decision You Make

Do you ever wonder if you’re making the right decision or the best decision you could make?

My friend’s husband had died a year and a half ago after a long and happy marriage. She confided in me. “Now that I’m alone, there’s a number of business decisions and then decisions on the house I have to make by myself. Sometimes I wonder if I’m making the right one.”

“I understand how you feel. I feel that way too sometimes. I find it challenging sometimes to make decisions by myself now too. I like the idea that God will give us wisdom for every decision we make.

Desires Fulfilled Bring Life

Today, I had a lot to do. I walked by my watercolors. My heart longed to stop and enjoy them. Most of the time I walk on because it takes time to get everything out and then put it away. Because of other demands with my work, those creative urges get repressed and leave an an unfulfilled longing.

However, today I decided to apply the 15 minute principle. I pulled out my little travel case of watercolors and sat down and began to play with them. I have taken drawing and watercolor classes before but set those on the shelf for years. Recently, I started going to a watercolor class again.

Nature’s Quiet Beauty Brings Wealth

Birds chirping. Wind gently stirring in the trees. Rich green everywhere I look. This is the nature walk I frequently enjoy along a creek that runs by our house. When I walk far enough down the road into a secluded section, the path becomes more wooded with trees lining both sides of the road.

When I used to walk, I’d often take my ipod with me to listen to books while I walk.  This made my walk for exercise pass more quickly. I felt more productive since I could absorb wisdom and knowledge from the books at the same time on my walk.

With Freedom Comes Responsibility

Freedom. What do you think about when you hear the word, freedom?

I used to think that freedom meant doing what I wanted. Then I realized that freedom only comes when I set limits and say no to things that are not good for me and even harmful to myself or others.

As I think about the freedom that comes from discipline, what we watch and think comes to mind. I believe as individuals we need to exercise restraint in how much we focus on darkness, harmful and destructive behavior simply for the sake of sensationalism or because we’re bored or curious.
