The Last Word

I got the last word.
I got the last laugh.
I won the argument.

When you are in an argument, pause and ask one question. Are you trying to win or find the truth?

There is no honor in the last word.
Honor is in the truth.

It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

Proverbs 20:3 KJV


The wisest people I know are still teachable.

Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

Psalm 119:33 KJV


I was talking with my friend Joey a few days ago. He gave me a nugget of wisdom I thought it good to share. We were discussing purpose, raising children and making big decisions. I told him that most of the time my way is cloudy and I can’t see where I’m going. The only time I can truly see the hand of God on my life is when I turn around and look at the road I’ve traveled. I can easily see His blessings, protection, and grace… but looking forward, not so much. During our brief conversation, Joey reminded me of a verse I’ve read a hundred times.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:6 KJV

Joey then asked, “Who’s ways?”

The choice is mine.
The ways are mine.

If I want direction along the way, all I need to do is acknowledge Him. How do I do that? It makes sense to me that He is acknowledged when I live by the fruits of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.


All affairs should not be voiced through social media. Use those platforms to inform, advertise and uplift.

A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Psalm 112:5 KJV


Our admiration is often misplaced.
Keeping the right perspective, will help our praise land where it should.

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

Psalm 107:15 KJV

What & How

What you say might get you in trouble. How you respond can get you out.

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

Proverbs 15:1 KJV


Slow to anger.

Mirror the maker.

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

Psalm 103:8 KJV


People who learn to work… win.

Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

Proverbs 13:11 KJV


Understanding hard limits is a superpower.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Psalm 90:12 KJV


Often, we don’t realize the depth of our actions. Scratch the surface and you will find, being kind to someone is the best thing you can do for yourself. 😉

The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.

Proverbs 11:17 KJV
