SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/29- “Humility Is The Way—And Don’t Ever Worry!” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

Premise Question: Just how important is it for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of Papa God, and then, to not worry, be offended or be anxious about anything?

“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

You will do well, and, do yourself a huge favor, when approaching The LORD, to come before Him with a humble and contrite spirit; serving and putting The LORD and then others, before and above yourself is the key, and that, without pride or arrogance, but with a gentleness, meekness and a respectful submissive attitude. Consequently, by submitting yourself underneath Papa God’s superior ability, skill, power, strength, authority, His unique purpose and specific divine will for your life, in such a manner, He will support and undergird you, by lifting you up and placing you in the perfect position, in order to accomplish His unique purpose and divine will for your life. There is one caveat, though, He will not do this in your time frame, but in His perfect timing, when it is due, on time, and not a moment before or after His appointed time. So, don’t spend any valuable time or resources on expending yourself in worrisome anxious thoughts or activities, trying to please others, but leave all of that anxiety with The LORD, and accept the truth, that He loves and cares for you much more than anyone else ever could or would even have the capacity or ability to do so. (1 Peter 5:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In humility, love and serve Papa God—The LORD GOD Almighty, first and foremost, with your whole heart, mind and strength, in your life!

Then, love and serve others, as a humble, gracious and most grateful servant of The Most High. Leave the timing of any and all promotions up to The LORD, and definitely don’t waste any time or resources on being anxious or offended about anything, in your life, because He, The LORD, truly loves and cares for you much more than you could ever imagine or even begin to comprehend! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/09- “Generosity, Humility, Thinking About Others And Their Interests, Is The Way We Ought To Go And Be!” (Philippians 2:3-4)

Posted on Updated on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/09- “Generosity, Humility, Thinking About Others And Their Interests, Is The Way We Ought To Go And Be!” (Philippians 2:3-4)

Premise Question: How are we to comport ourselves, and what specific attitudes, behaviors and perspectives are we exhorted and strongly encouraged to have and exhibit towards others, in this life?

“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” (‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:3-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Anything and anytime you choose to involve yourself in, or find yourself doing something in life, it’s extremely important that you make sure it’s not ever done with the attitudes of, “it’s all about me” and “how is this going to make me look and appear to others.” Nor should you ever display haughtiness or arrogance, by exhibiting a pompous, ostentatious attitude of superiority. Conversely, though, the most appropriate, and thereby, acceptable approach, perspective and attitudes to have and exhibit is to, with great humility and self-abnegation, choose to always significantly value others above yourself. You should do this, by making what is important and necessary to others, in their lives, a priority in your life, before addressing your own personal needs and interests. Each of us would greatly benefit by having these attitudes, with this most wise and prudent perspective and approach. For it’s not “about me,” it’s about others! (Philippians 2:3-4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We are, as individual members of The Company of The Redeemed, exhorted and strongly encouraged to comport ourselves, in such a determined manner and fashion, that we exhibit attitudes, perspective and behaviors towards others, those we come in contact with in our daily sojourn, a selflessness, characterized by devotion to the care, concern welfare and interest of others, and that, without displaying any pretense or trying to impress and influence how or what they may perceive or think of us personally, but with true humility and grace, always being courteous, civil and generous, while showing great respect towards them, by never acting or exuding an air of superiority nor a sense of entitlement or conceit.

We should ever be looking to be involved and invested in others lives, in a positive and helpful way, by being fully engaged, with a willingness to participate in any way and on any level that shows sincere compassion, empathy and genuine concern, and which effectively meets, satisfies and assists them, while addressing the real needs of those we are deliberately making a significant valued sacrificial investment in, for the specific goal and purpose of truly helping and making an impactful life-changing difference in their lives, giving all the glory, honor and praise to The LORD.

So, being generous, walking in humility, while thinking about others and their unique and specific interests, by looking out for them, rather than only looking out for our own interests and needs, is truly the way we ought to choose to comport ourselves and the way we ought to go and be! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/23- “Don’t Be A ‘Put On’! —But Do ‘Put On’ All Of These Attributes!” (Colossians 3:12)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/23- “Don’t Be A ‘Put On’! —But Do ‘Put On’ All Of These Attributes!” (Colossians 3:12)

Premise Question: Did Papa God choose us because we are a righteous, holy and pure people, or did He choose us because He loves us and desires that we become a righteous, holy and pure people; with His divine help and through His gracious provision of His Son—our redeeming LORD and Savior— Jesus Christ?

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” (‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Therefore, since you’ve been divinely selected, because of The LORD GOD Almighty being favorably inclined towards you, to be one of His very own devout and cherished family members, of The Company of The Redeemed, you must make sure you are always clad appropriately, with these vitally important attributes, wearing them at all times, for all to see and personally experience. Now, regarding all of these attributes, don’t just be a “put on,” but actually put them on! Put on compassion, being moved to action, with sympathy, becoming empathetic towards others plight, by doing something that will really offer them the help needed, in order to alleviate their condition. Put on kindness, exhibiting kind benevolent favor, that’s thoughtful, helpful and cordial. Put on humility, not elevating yourself, by thinking you are superior or above others. Put on gentleness, always displaying a meek, mild and calm disposition and manner towards others. And finally, put on patience, by showing great restraint and self-control, choosing to learn and train yourself not to be reactionary, but responsive. Not hot headed, but even tempered, persistent, long suffering, and that, without any grumbling or complaint. (Colossians 3:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Oh what joy and pure delight, with an absolute certitude and a wholehearted gratitude, that’s full of exuberant rejoicing and thoughtful thanksgiving, being lifted up continually unto Papa God, His Son and The Holy Spirit, who is The King Eternal, The LORD of all, The One True and Faithful Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is The Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, and is The One who comforts, heals and restores, forgives and renews, and The One who chooses and loves, and gives us an abundant new life, and that, forevermore.

He is The One who, with His divine enabling, asks us to clothe ourselves, each and everyday, with His divine, yet quite practical, as well as, being extremely beneficial, attributes of The LORD.

He greatly desires that we be very tenderhearted, showing mercy and compassion, with great affection and benevolence, towards others. Papa God wants us to be kind to one another and others, being gracious, showing favor and generosity towards others.

It is of the utmost importance that we clothe ourselves in humility, walking and comporting ourselves in lowliness and exhibiting meekness towards others.

Our attitude and approach towards others, should always be characterized as being gentle, amiable and with much caring and real concern.

And finally, we must exhibit the divine and unique quality of being patient, having a huge reservoir, full to overflowing, of patience, calmness, steady composure, long suffering and forbearance.

So, don’t be a “Put On,” but, “Put On” all these attributes of The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/23- “A Delightful Crown Of Victory!” (Psalms 149:4)

Premise Question: How can it be that our total surrender is what guarantees our ultimate and complete victory in life?

“For the LORD delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.”
‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭149:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself takes great pleasure in filling His own precious and most cherished people, The Company of The Redeemed, with exuberant joy, satisfaction and fulfillment; for He places upon their heads, all those who walk in humility before Him, a guaranteed triumphant glorious crown, that will never fade, nor can it ever be taken away in defeat, as they, His people, have delightfully pleased The LORD in their humble surrender to Him, and have therefore, been rewarded the everlasting crown of victory! (Psalms 149:4 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our ultimate triumph and crown of victory is inextricably tied to our humility and total surrender to The LORD GOD Almighty. For when we please and truly delight The LORD, by totally and completely surrendering everything to Him, it causes Him to honor and reward us, by conferring upon us a glorious victors crown of everlasting joy, peace, righteousness, and eternal life.

Our ultimate victory, is therefore, absolutely assured and guaranteed, when, and only when, we humbly surrender to Him every area and part of our lives; our wills, our relationships, our ways, our work, our behaviors our goals, dreams and aspirations, all of it to His way, His will, divine purposes and desires for our lives.

The only way to win then, and receive the delightful, satisfying and fulfilling, everlasting crown of victory, is total and complete surrender! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/21- “The Way Of Humility Is Best Chosen!” (Proverbs 18:12)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/21- “The Way Of Humility Is Best Chosen!” (Proverbs 18:12)

Premise Question: Just what is the marked differences between haughtiness and humility, and where does each of them end up?

“Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In advance of a disastrous failure overtaking a person’s life, and causing their complete undoing, resulting in ruination of a respectable reputation, and also accompanied by great loss; the issue begins in the innermost part of the person’s being, which is, the seat of their emotions, ethics, desires and attitudes—their heart. Now, unfortunately for them, when a person gives the self over to being highfalutin, pretentious, arrogantly supercilious and disdainfully contemptuous, disaster always follows. But, when an individual approaches life with a “down to earth,” genuinely meek, as well as, modest and humble heart, by not ever exhibiting an air of superiority, thinking they are better than someone else; then, that is the precursor that shows up, by making an appearance ahead of the huge blessings and benefits, along with the great honor, respect and high esteem, that will be conferred upon each individual’s life, who displays such humility. (Proverbs 18:12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Haughtiness, which creates a debilitating blind spot in a person’s life, is accompanied by its self-centered, cantankerous, being recalcitrant and stubborn attitudes, as well as, being entirely incorrigible, intractable and snobbish, while displaying, disdainfully proud and obstinate behaviors, which are full of scorn and arrogant pomposity, will always pave the way for a person’s life to be ushered onto the path that will ultimately lead to utter devastation, complete ruination, ending in total destruction of one’s life and reputation!

Humility, conversely though, with its attitudes and behaviors of lowliness, meekness, gentleness, deference, reverence, respect and regard for Papa God and others, creates perfect vision and discernment in a person’s life, as it opens up the lines of communication with Papa God’s Spirit, in order to develop a personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ, who then becomes our spiritual guide, by the Spirit, directing and leading us to the way and upon the path of eternal life, divine wisdom, perfect peace and the fullness of everlasting joy!

Therefore, always remember: The way of humility is always best chosen! Haughtiness is the quickest way to wreck yourself! Humility is the only way to great honor! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/20- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!” (Proverbs 11:2)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/20- “Don’t Allow Pride To Ride And Rule!”
(Proverbs 11:2)

Premise Question: Why do some people choose the way of pride, which leads to devastating disgrace and destructive demise, when everyone is given the wonderfully blest opportunity to choose the way of humility, which leads to wisdom, peace, satisfaction, fulfillment and joy?

“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭11:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

When adulation, adoration and applause,
is heaped upon people’s lives,
then arrogance, hubris, insolence,
a full blown pride may arise,
swelled up in all of its pretense,
devastating disgrace and destructive demise,
but a meek, lowly and contrite heart of civility,
filled with modesty, courtesy and polite respect,
overcomes all arrogant insolent hubris, with humility,
which then brings wisdom from above,
in all of its truth, honor, good judgement and insight,
teaching and nurturing us with His unfailing love. (Proverbs 11:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Don’t allow pride, along for the ride, in your life! For its resulting consequences, when allowed to ride and rule in your life, are a loss of respect, honor and esteem, accompanied by, devastating disgrace, abject humiliation, total annihilation and utter destruction!

So, why anyone would ever choose to allow pride to ride along, to be the ruling influence in their life, lacks good sense, understanding or the ability to accept and comprehend the eventuality of the guaranteed outcome! There is, though, an actual cause and reason we can point to, that has a huge bearing on why one may succumb to being strongly influenced, carried away and overwhelmed in choosing to be led and directed by pride over humility.

Pride can be extremely intoxicating, as one can become completely inebriated and drunk on the praise, recognition and accolades being heaped upon them by others. It can cause a person to become confused, befuddled, delirious, vision impaired, unable to see themselves and things in their life for what they really are.

We are all subject to becoming captivated by our pride and the praise of others. It can have the debilitating affect on us of becoming imbalanced, beside ourselves, resulting in emotional and mental stupidity. When this occurs, we lose our ability to appropriately discern or make good judgements, and as a direct result, wise decisions are rarely, if ever, made!

So, don’t allow pride to ride and rule and reign in your life, where ignominy and shame prevails, but choose the way of humility and meekness, which leads to wisdom, peace and joy.

Remember, when we lose our balance, we are subject to falling! “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 08/19- “Don’t Be A Mocker!” (Proverbs 3:34)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/19- “Don’t Be A Mocker!” (Proverbs 3:34)

Premise Question: Given the resulting absolutely abject, being completely abhorrent and utterly repugnant response that is engendered, from The LORD, when one chooses to practice the behavior of a mocker; just why would anyone ever fain to practice such disdainfully deplorable behavior?

“The LORD mocks the mockers but is gracious to the humble.”
(‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:34‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

He, The LORD GOD Almighty, is indignantly displeased, having contemptible ridicule, being utterly dismissive and derisively scornful towards those who are full of conceit, and who proudly display a high opinion of themselves, exhibiting an air of superiority, while showing disdain towards others, by disrespecting them in their speech, attitudes and behavior. But He, The LORD GOD Almighty, openly demonstrates and proves His love, by preferring and showing His undeserved goodwill and pleasure to those who are not arrogant, but are modest, respectful, meek and lowly in their approach, attitude, and behavior. And furthermore, He is also inclined, because of His great compassion, towards those who are weighted down with onerous burdens, distressing grief, mental anguish, pernicious pain and unrelenting persecution. (Proverbs 3:34 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I truly believe, that one of our greatest enemies to seeing and coming to grips with the actual truth about ourselves, lies deep within us, and perhaps it is so well hidden that it’s come to the point of us being unaware that we are even unaware of it!

Oh what blindness occurs in us when our vision becomes completely impaired by our own pride, self-deception, delusions of grandeur, our own sense of self-importance, the celebration of our own accomplishments, achievements and accolades.

Our hubris, insolence, conceit and arrogance, as well as, our feelings of insecurity and being unsure of ourselves, will cause us to become a person who mocks, ridicules, insults and derides others, as well as, perhaps what we may not understand, and therefore, will continue to keep us in the dark, with our eyes closed, entirely resistant to any reasonable confrontation with actual facts.

Our only way out of this pride maelstrom of insanity, that we may be in and are experiencing, with the dire result of our ultimate and total destruction; is through the humility and contriteness of our heart and soul!

Therefore, we must choose to humble ourselves under Papa God’s mighty hand, as He will always resist and reject the proud, but will always give gracious favor to the humble, those who are poor in spirit, as He is ever continually drawn to them.

For it is only with true humility and contriteness, that we will regain our sight and sanity in every part of our lives; spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically, and then, we will fully experience the joys, benefits and blessings of The LORD’S gracious favor in our lives! Otherwise, we experience the abject and utter mocking of The LORD in our daily lives.

Humility or Humiliation, there are only two options available to each of us, and we make the choice! Blessings…
