Tuesdays set aside time
to focus on your thoughts.
When it comes to thoughts about people's behavior, recognize that people's behavior is like a leopard's spots.
A leopard doesn't change its spots. It remains what it is consistently. How does that apply to you and me as a child of God? Sometimes we think that over time or because of circumstances, people will change, or that because we forgive them and try to work with them, they will be a better person, that does not happen. People may be able to trick you and act differently for a while, but they cannot keep up their fake phony ways for long. Like the setting of the sun and the rising of the moon, you can count on the fact that their ugly, nasty ways will rear itself again. I give most people 90 days to see if their behavior will stay consistent. And believe me, it does not. I have seen people have near death experiences turn around and be the same nasty, mean person they were before the incident. Nothing changed, even though they almost lost their life. So my friend, do not be fooled and give the devil an inch of your life by letting fake phony people in your inner circle. Be strong enough to keep them out of your life. One of my best friends told me that "A true friend is worth their weight in gold" It's true, they are priceless. And a fake phony friend can cost you your life, peace of mind and salvation if you let them. So be discernful!!!
I pray that you are having a good day and that you have a phenomenal week ahead filled with God's grace, mercy, and favor.
Until next time take care of yourself and stay special!!!
