2017 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT – Week 38. COMBATIVENESS

Hello again dear friends, how has our week been? Mine has been glorious, thank God!

This week, laid on my heart to share and encourage us with is combativeness. This noun shows a state of being ready to argue or fight, ultimately leading to being characterized as being pugnacious! Not a nice way to describe anybody, yes? But the reality is that once in a while like that we just feel like ‘sticking it to the other person, do we not?

Now, my own experience is that after my combative encounter I often feel that maybe I came on too strongly? 🙈 So, been there, done that! Ok, so this piece is not about being judgmental.

How do we think people we have ban combative with feel, during and after each encounter? This should sharpen our understanding of the real problem of being combative. If we reckon such people feel happy and left the conversation feeling better, then being combative would be a good thing; but that never happens, does it? Often than not those on the receiving end would leave unhappy and wonder what just hit them!

Now, if we accept that every human being is an extension of God, then our manner of discuss amongst ourselves, in public and privately should take on a civil tone and manner , shouldn’t it. And we should also understand the ‘manner’ part of what I just said above. Some folk have mastered the art of speaking evenly in low tones, but their body language can dice a rock in half!

So, what to do? I believe the book of Hebrews has the perfect recipe – Follow peace with ALL men and holiness, without which no man can see God! When we get on that train, trust me, our combative nature will reduce and gradually diminish. God bless us as we begin to try.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

SHM WEEKLY CHARGE _ Week 47.

My dear friend, I am led to share with you today – Attitude is not a gift, it is a choice!

Your emotions attract their material equivalent! When you think positive, you get the best of God and your environment; and vice versa. So, train your mind to think and confess positive attitudes, not negative ones. You will succeed only with positive emotions.

So, this week I charge you to begin the journey to a positive attitude, regardless of what you feel. Would it be easy, definitely not! This is my challenge to you. Do not forget, you can do all things through Christ that provides the strength. Ask for His help today.

See you on Friday for the Weekend Tonic. Meanwhile, have a great week. You are created to excel, and excel you shall IJMN.
