I'm A HYPOCRITE
I'm a HYPO-CRITE, say whhaatt?
Yes honey, I realized over this last weekend that I definitely don't practice what I preach.
I pride myself on giving good advice, like legit get you to heaven's gate advice. Most of my friends trust me and allow me to give my 2 cents in their lives and usually after giving some concrete advice and or wise counsel (if you may) I normally feel great about what I share with them.
Well, let's back this up for a sec. A couple of weekends ago, someone called me and shared how they were tired of their place of worship, more so the members of the congregation. As she spoke her peace, I began to challenge her thinking. I asked her questions, like drilled her as if I had somehow became a militant figure. Moving forward, at the end of the conversation I had advised her to look past the people that were bothering her, to show herself friendly to those that mistreated her and more important to remember it's not the person that she dislikes, it's the spirit that's dwelling in them.
I mean I laid it on thick, even gave her the whole spill about how we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Sounds like the right thing to say, right?
Getting to my point....
I mentioned that story above because now you are about to see how your girl is a hypocrite.
This past weekend, my family and I were at the mall. During this mall trip, I happened to see someone whom I had a great relationship with in the past. Typical crap happened where we had a huge fight, later tried to rekindle the relationship but mutually decided that relationship was better dead.
No problems there. Sometimes things are just hard to recover from (be careful of what you say to someone when you're upset because trust me hearing hurtful things are hard to recover from), that's life.
Ok! Now here we are in this mall, haven't spoken with one another since November and I had to make a decision. Do I embrace them and show my self to be friendly? Do I look past the physical person and despise the spirit? I mean I just gave this advice, so you would think that it would be easy to practice what I preached.
Well, hopefully by my title you're not going to be shocked once you hear what decision I made.
Yall, I failed! You would think since I knew better that I would have done better, nope!
I didn't acknowledge the person or their family and as my husband embraced them I continued on with what I was doing, unbothered.
Sheeesh! I'm glad that's over.
If I can leave you guys with something, it would simply be 'DON'T GIVE ADVICE THAT YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE."
