You may have noticed that on my signature in the “about ” section I have 2 quotes. One quote is from Attorney Richard Humpal. This quote states that
When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth he will either quit being mistaken or cease being honest. Attorney Richard Humpal
The reason that this quote is so powerful to me is because I have had many experiences that have taught me that there are many men (and women) who are seemingly honest, when they find that they have been honestly mistaken, they cease being honest. I have come to discover the hard way that it is more often than not that a person will cease being honest. It is a sad fact…we must diligently be judging ourselves, and continually be asking for the eyes to see and the ears to hear lest we become deaf and blind to our own estate. When I was in my early 30″s I heard a man named Leo Buscaglia talk and he said that when he was young he was told, if you get too big for your britches they will split. I never forgot that. This is the problem, when people get too big for their britches and they split, they fight like mad to cover up and deny it. Instead of saying ooops I need help here, I have been too proud or what have you.
I pray that the Father of us all will keep a watch over my mouth and my fingers as I type these blogs. I pray that He will keep me from getting “too big” and that He will do as the Scripture saith:
Proverbs 30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
Thank You Father for your mercy and Your blessings.
