Remember this.

Humility doesn’t mean that you have to let people ‘run all over you’. It doesn’t mean that they have a right to demean or belittle you, your knowledge, your experience, your character, who you are…especially just to feed their ego, or sense of pride.

It is not a sin to assert yourself as long as you do it in a Godly manner.

Look at what Job said when his friends, who were supposed to be there to comfort him, began to blame his troubles on him…

Job 12:3  (NKJV)

But I have [a]understanding as well as you;
am not inferior to you.
Indeed, who does not know such things as these?

So, if someone expects you to feed their ego by belittling you, here’s some help if you ever can’t think of what to say…

I respect you. But, I lick my lips too many times a day to kiss your behind.

It’s not a sin to assert yourself!



After over 32 years, I’ve learned that marriage is work, especially when the wifey is handing out jobs to her hubby all day long…

Don’t forget to…

Will you please…..

Please hand me my…

Are you going to the kitchen?

Are you going out?

One day not to long ago that when I answer her phone, I going to start saying, “Hello, this is HR.”

She fell right into my trap for the punch line by asking me, “Why?”

“Because all you do is give me jobs all day long.”

But, it’s all good though because it’s the little things you do for each other is how you can really show your appreciation for one another and make marriage richer and more fulfilling.

Proverbs 31:28  (NKJV)

28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:



The wisdom in the inspired word of God is amazing! It provides a guide, a measuring stick and a test for behavior that transcends time, culture and our own personal theologies, you know, what we CHOOSE to believe.

It’s easy to say I love you or to say I don’t love you anymore, but how do you know if it’s really love?

Well, the bible gives us an incredible test to tell whether or not behavior is actually love that we can use daily in our families, on our jobs, in our churches…in every situation.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8  (NKJV)

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not [a]puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, [b]thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

If it’s not patient…it’s not love.

If it’s not kind…it’s not love.

If it’s arrogant…it’s not love.

If it’s not humble…it’s not love.

If it’s rude…it’s not love.

If it is selfish…it’s not love.

If it is easily provoked to anger, lust, greed etc,…it’s not love.

If thoughts linger on things against the will of God…it’s not love.

If it rejoices and celebrates evil people, behavior or thoughts…it’s not love.

If it isn’t willing to carry the weight of those who are weaker…it’s not love.

If it isn’t willing to endure, no matter what the difficulty, believe through when belief and faith are most challenged, hope through the the most difficult and seemingly impossible circumstances…it’s not love!

Save this. Copy and paste this. Share this. Use this every day. Look at every situation, and use this as a test to tell…Is it really love?
