  1. Hey Robert .... I "talk" with my brother, Robert, on the telephone about politics .... well.... he talks .... and I listen. My brother, who lives about 250 miles away, hates Donald Trump with a salivating and spittle, foaming at the mouth passion, and nearly goes into stroke-mode lambasting him, at which time I cannot get a word in edgewise. After about 45 minutes he slows down, and I can hear his wife in the background telling him to calm down, Robert, calm down, calm down. Today he called, and I casually mentioned he seems to have a dilemma .....as currently it seems Bernie Sanders, avowed true believer Socialist and Communist, who got married in Moscow, seems to be the front-runner for the Democrat Primaries going on, and may be the Democrat Party Candidate for President of the United States! I told him ... "Hey Robert ... it looks like you have a choice between Bernie Sanders, and voting for Donald Trump, to keep the USA from going Socialist !" Even though he was on the phone, I thought I heard the "AAAAAAGGGGGHHHH!," outside my house.
  2. Safeguard Your Inheritance by Making Wise Choices ????????? “Abhor what is wicked, cling to what is good.”—ROMANS 12:9. ????????? The first step is to think about the consequences of sin. The more we love Jehovah, the more we will appreciate our inheritance. When we love someone, we do not want to hurt that person. Instead, we try our best to make him happy. So we should take time to think about the consequences of sin, that is, how we would hurt ourselves and others if we gave in to temptation. ????????? We should ask ourselves: ‘How would my selfish conduct affect my relationship with Jehovah? How would the sin affect my family? How would it affect my brothers and sisters in the congregation? Would my conduct offend others?Â’ (Philippians 1:10) ????????? We could also ask ourselves: ‘Are a few moments of immoral pleasure worth the price I will pay afterward? Do I really want to be like Esau, who cried bitterly when he realized the consequences of his sin?Â’ (Hebrews 12:17) ????????? If we think carefully about these questions, we will hate what is bad and love what is good. (Romans 12:9) When we truly love Jehovah, we will work hard to protect our inheritance.—Psalm 73:28. ????????? If we want to be prepared to resist temptation, we have to make an effort to keep ourselves strong ????????? The second step is to prepare ourselves to resist temptation. Jehovah has given us many ways to prepare ourselves to resist temptation from the world and protect our relationship with him. For example, he has shown us how to benefit from Bible study, meetings, the field ministry, and prayer. (1 Corinthians 15:58) ????????? Each time we tell Jehovah our true feelings in prayer and every time we work hard in the ministry, we are preparing ourselves to resist temptation. (Read 1 Timothy 6:12, 19.) ????????? If we want to succeed, we have to keep making the effort to do these things. (Galatians 6:7)  - Bible Speaks - https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/402013366?q=prov+2%3A2&p=par
  3. Last month I was in Kyoto, Japan (beautiful by the way), eating at a sushi restaurant when it happened. I picked up my bowl of miso soup, sipped it politely, then immediately gasped because I’d just gulped down soy sauce. (In my defense, it was a dark restaurant and the bowl was dark colored, so you couldn’t see the color of the liquid.) That’s right, I drank soy sauce! My face turned red and embarrassment set in. I was already experiencing culture shock and jet lag from arriving in Asia, and my inner critic started to criticize me and say, “You can’t do anything right. You are such a bad traveler. Anyone would know that wasn’t soup.” Needless to say, I felt like a big loser. At this point in my life, I was already second-guessing my trip to Japan. I’ve been traveling for almost five months straight and was feeling like maybe trying to squeeze so many countries into my adventure was a mistake. I was embarrassed and starting to regret specific choices I had made. We all have choices we make, whether it is small situation—ahem, my soy sauce incident—or a bigger, life-altering choice like relocating, changing careers, getting involved romantically with a new partner, and sometimes these choices don’t pan out the way we hoped. If you are embarrassed by a choice you’ve made, today’s video will help. I share simple steps to help you get over embarrassment so you can pick yourself up and focus on moving forward with more happiness and ease. 1. It was what you wanted at the time. Every choice we make is ultimately giving us more clarity. Sometimes after we make the choice, we grow and learn more about ourselves … and then we sometimes feel like we made the wrong choice. But remember, it was never a wrong choice because it was what you thought was best at the time when you made the choice. 2. Identify who you’ve become. All your choices are a collection of choices, and you can learn and grow from all of them. If you feel embarrassed by a recent decision you’ve made, focus your attention on the benefits that have come from that situation. Who have you become in the process of that choice? By identifying the strengths it gave, you can see the blessing in the lesson. 3. There are no mistakes. Remember, there are no mistakes. Every choice you have made was the right choice at that specific time. If you don’t like the outcome, just make a new choice. What have you learned from a recent choice that turned out different than you planned? I’d love to hear from you below. These tips are from my best-selling book Adventures for Your Soul.
