I Didn't Think.......

This thought came as I brushed my teeth a few minutes ago. Wouldn't it be great if we never heard a statement begin with, "I didn't think.......?"


I didn't think you.......

I didn't think black people.......

I didn't think white people.......

I didn't think women.......

I didn't think men.......

I didn't think muslims.......

I didn't think christians.......

I didn't think atheists.......


What do you KNOW about this man, woman, race, culture, ethnicity, faith, belief, lack thereof, that you are about to offend?


When you take time to truly think, you are led to learn rather than assume. When you take time to think, you are less likely to blindly join any baseless bandwagons. When you take time to think, you realize how much you actually do NOT know.


"Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. For I too was a son to my father,

still tender, and cherished by my mother. Then he taught me, and he said to me, take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown (Proverbs 4:1-9).”


**Note: The Bible isn't the only place from which we are to gain wisdom and understanding.


Those who have ears to hear, let them hear.......
