An incident happened some months ago that ended with me saying ‘that is THEE last time that they will EVER disrespect me.’ And I’ve kept that truth. A few days ago I was disrespected for the last time by another individual. This person has continuously disrespected me and because I was raised to never disrespect your elders and not taught how to handle them when they disrespect you, I have become a yes man under this person. Well, Friday ended that. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been here for 120 years, you have to respect those around you as well.
So, with that OPERATION: SNAP OFF is in full effect. I’m going to go to the word, before coming to you.. the word will tell me:
15 “If your brother or sister[a] sins,[b] go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’[c] 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
Now, after verse 15 and before verse 16, I’ma insert my own verse. 15.5 “SNAP OFF”. I am not one for confrontation, never really liked it. But, if I have to do something, I will. When disrespected, I’m going to let the person know; I feel disrespected and I really do not appreciate it and what I need to happen is for you to stop before it gets real. LOL! Okay, erase the last part, but I’m dead on about approaching folks and giving them the business.
My mama always said “Sometimes you gotta do things you don’t want to do to get where you gotta be.” And for me that means, sometimes I have to confront people I don’t want to, to allow God to develop me into the person He created me to be! Bold in this thang. We don’t do punk ’round these parts!
Anyways, good day folks 🙂
