The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

Message for November 15, 2010

We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.” Paulo Coelho

Moreover, stop judging, and you will by no means be judged; and stop condemning, and you will by no means be condemned. Keep on releasing, and you will be released. Luke 6:37

Renunciation: “the formal rejection of something, typically a belief, claim, or course of action” New Oxford American Dictionary

Unfortunately people have a tendency to see the differences in each other. That characteristic combined with the fact that no two people are the same often creates conflict between people. What if we could look past our differences and disagreements and see people for who they are, what they've gone through, and the extenuating circumstances that are shaping their view of the world? What if we could see our actions through the viewpoint of others? What if we tried to improve upon ourselves instead of justifying our faults by finding faults in others? If we did all theses things there is no doubt in my mind, (and I think you would agree) many of the conflicts and hurt in the world would be eliminated. Let's try to see the world from more than our selfish viewpoint, renounce conflict based on misunderstandings and change the world around us for the better.
