SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/05/15- “Get Trained, Be Sustained And Retrained, And Then You’ll Remain!” (Psalms 119:7)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 10/05/15- “Get Trained, Be Sustained And Retained, And Then You’ll Remain!” (Psalms 119:7)
Premise Question: What must a person do in order to maintain a righteous life; one that is fully sustained, held in place and retained, without being constrained, while having the ability to be appropriately refrained, as well as being calm and restrained, but at the end of all things, still be standing and continue to remain?
“As I learn your righteous regulations, I will thank you by living as I should!”
(Psalms 119:7 NLT)
I shall choose, with deliberate determination, to make it my purpose and aim, to actively exercise my will, by ordering myself to express great gratitude, extolling You, Oh LORD, with the highest and most exuberant glorious praise; I will do this from the very center and core of my innermost being, with a rectitude, righteous, full of integrity, upright heart. I shall learn, maintain and grow in knowledge, as I become more and more aquatinted with Your righteous laws, this shall be accomplished through the training by and retaining of Your most holy and wonderfully righteous regulations, perfect precepts, principles and virtuous commands for living. (Psalms 119:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The only way and path to the place of a person being able to maintain and live a righteous life, and then, ultimately, at the end, still be standing, and continue to remain is; to yield and submit themselves to the process of being trained. This is the process of learning, growing and maturing, with a clear understanding and full acceptance of the spiritual disciplines, holy commands and righteous regulations of The LORD God Almighty, that absolutely must be applied and personally practiced in a person’s daily life. May we all, with great joy and enthusiasm, always be ready willing, excited and completely submitted to learning The LORD’s righteous regulations and then live them out, with praise, gratitude and thanksgiving, in our daily lives! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/27/15- “Don’t Get Stuck On Stupid!” (Proverbs 12:1)
Premise Question: What is the prudently wise, being the utmost effective way in producing the most preferred and desired results, in order for a person to learn, develop, grow and mature spiritually, emotionally, socially and then, to also have a high degree of mental acumen?
To learn, you must love discipline; it is stupid to hate correction. (Proverbs 12:1 NLT)
No matter who you are, if you’ll relish discipline, by fully embracing and allowing it to thoroughly train and equip you, in order to develop obedience in you, and, if you’ll be a lover of knowledge, by cherishing the principles of truth, it will increase your insight and understanding; causing an awareness in you of the great benefits derived from being one who loves, rather than disdains and despises discipline. But, if you are one who dislikes intensely, having an extreme hostility for and a detestable aversion of correction, by not yielding yourself to it, and then, allowing the necessary and appropriate remedy, along with any properly proposed adjustment to be applied to your wrongful thinking, inappropriate behavior or actions; then, you are simply quite foolish, without any sense, common or otherwise, and can therefore, be identified as being just plain stupid. (Proverbs 12:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Whatever walk or ilk a person comes from in life, there is going to come a time in their lives where they can no longer feign being ignorant or unaware. There may be a time in their lives though, that they are unaware that they’re even unaware! But once they’ve become aware, and been given the opportunity, through discipline and correction, to gain knowledge, understanding and insight, so as not to be unaware and ignorant any longer, they must necessarily take full responsibility for their thoughts, actions and behaviors. For when a person becomes aware and then chooses to not let go of their ignorant ways of thinking, with the accompanying behaviors, they can, at that time, be considered to be a stupid fool! It’s therefore, an absolute imperative, that in order to learn and acquire the knowledge needed to develop, mature and grow, in all areas of life, a person should embrace and love the discipline and correcting process; for it is, without a doubt, the most judiciously prudent way and will have the greatest effect, while producing the ultimate and most desired results. There’s an old saying: “You can’t fix stupid!” So don’t get stuck on stupid, by hating correction and discipline. Ignorance can be corrected and ultimately fixed, but there’s pretty much no hope for the belligerently stupid. Blessings…
