TODAY THE WORDS are BROKEN MIRRORS. How many of you remember the old saying, “If you break a mirror, it brings 7 years of bad luck?”  With everything going on in the world, I am beginning to check when I walk by a mirror to see if it is broken. With morality at its lowest level in my lifetime; with any form of dress code diminished to “street walker level” (with some exceptions which I am so proud to see some young people with some dignity); with language comparable to street gang linguistics; and families having feuds which make the Hatfield and McCoy’s look like friends. I am checking……Has someone been smashing mirrors around the world? Is this a secret conspiracy to give all of us at least 7 or more horrible years? I am beginning to wonder. I would like to make sure I stay in a socially acceptable position to not be judgmental, right……is it judgmental or observation? If I am at a counter, and I am choosing between fruit; it is easy to recognize a pear from an apple, a banana instead of an orange. When somebody came up with what I call a stupid phrase, “politically correct” they opened the flood gates for indecency. In other words, we are to see the most ridiculous inappropriate behavior, dress, flagrant disregard for things which should be sacred, disrespect for life, liberty, etc. and “accept it”. Well, in no fear of repercussion I say, that is a bunch of rubbish. See, here is what I get from all of this……Someone found a “glitch” in not understanding what God meant by “7 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again“. Maybe God was saying we are all going to be judged for our good works and deeds and He meant for all of us to do good and not say to each other “you did not do what you needed to do” without doing what we need to do ourselves. When God says, “By their fruit you will recognize them. Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. ” didn’t that mean we would know a person by the “fruit it bears”. I can already see some of you jumping up and down and I am not judging; I am observing. What I do believe is “All can be saved by the Grace and Blood of Jesus”. Instead of being scared to guide a soul to Christ, maybe we need to encourage them to find the way to maintain their dignity throughout their journey.I am only responsible for making sure of my eternal destination but God wants all of His Children there so we need to stop breaking mirrors and finding excuses for those of us who break His Laws. Live life; love life and live life to the fullest with love and charity in our hearts.
