#145 – The Enemy of Purpose

The opinions of men make fools and enemies of God. Men will celebrate you into a shallow grave, by tolerating your ignobility, without resistance. Compliance does not equal love and resistance is love, in its unconditional form.

Success can be the enemy of purpose and winning a battle can produce a confidence, that loses the war. Watch what you place your hope in. The appearance of better is not equivalent to becoming better.

The unvarnished truth can be shared, except by, hearts knitted in love. The truth is like a surgeon’s scalpel and it can only be wielded with the precision perfected in love and a skill found in discipline.

Affirmations are plentiful when those speaking see a benefit in your behaviors. The integrity of a heart is hidden until stress is applied and under the pressure of conflict its true contents are revealed.

Proverbs 27:5-8
A spoken reprimand is better than approval that’s never expressed. The wounds from a lover are worth it; kisses from an enemy do you in. When you’ve stuffed yourself, you refuse dessert; when you’re starved, you could eat a horse.
