So many times I’ve asked people how they were doing & the response was “blessed” or “blessed and highly favored.” The truth is that is NOT a correct answer. How one is doing refers to their emotional state (happy, sad, ticked off, depressed, joyous, mad, etc). Me being blessed or highly favored is independent of how I’m doing. The fact that I’m blessed or highly favored doesn’t change with my emotional state.
There’s so many people in the church that speak church lingo but have no clue what they are say. Stop being a deep wonder and be real. The truth of the matter is when you’re not real with yourself and those that can help you come out of what you’re in you remain in that situation. So many Christians are hurting but live in a delusional world. They’ve been taught that life doesn’t bother us because we have Jesus on the inside. Despite the version or language my bible is Jesus was not void of emotions. #Selah
Having a churchy vocabulary & being deep all the time only say that you have the ability to appear spiritual. It doesn’t win souls, it doesn’t help you resolve whatever issues you are facing inwardly or with others. Nor does it resolved any issues you may have with someone else. In fact, most of the time what you are saying may sound good because you’re a Christian but what you’re saying may not even make sense and the person you’re talking to is thinking “what are you talking about?”
Let’s focus on the thing that matter. That’s being a Christian – not sounding like one.
Until Next Time….
