” Why would God make us so different, if he wanted us to be the same?”
” I don’t think all religions can be all bad, or all good.”
Those are quotes from the movie, ” SAVED!” which I am sure I will get some slack for even mentioning here. I will be called a hypocrite for watching it and blah blah blah.
I liked the movie.
I could relate to Mary. But that isn’t the point of this blog, so I will move on.
I am talking about the bible verse:
Phillipians 4:8, “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
See, something I learned recently was its great to do the right thing, and that is what God expects of us, but the secret He didn’t tell us was, the right thing doesn’t always mean the majority will agree.
Sometimes being someone that steps out on a limb, while everyonelse stays in place, makes it worse for you.
I am not saying this to depress you, I am speaking the truth because I learned my lesson recently.
I am going back to school in August; finishing my degree so I can be closer to becoming a teacher.
I never realized how many risks would be involved.
I emailed my district manager, and told her what my plans in August would be; I told her it was not official, because I didn’t even know what the tuition costs would be.
Little did I know, she took it very official, as if I would be leaving in a week!
They sat me down and said there was a new person to take my place, and that would give me three weeks.
Something I did that I thought showed such integrity, was my ultimate downfall!
I ask WHY, but it doesn’t really do any good. I just gotta live and learn.
Doing the right thing, is the right thing, but the right thing must be done, at the right time.
Others have told me that timing is the biggest factor in terms of doing the right thing.
You can’t be in a store, and see a child next to you and assume that the mother left him there lost, and walk him to the customer service.
You have to wait a few minutes, listen for the mother calling him, and watch the childs face expression, is he just wandering or is he afraid?
You would be thinking you were doing the right thing; but what if the mother was on the other side of the aisle, and saw you taking her child by the hand away? It could get personal lol.
Next time I will know no matter what, the system has a way of doing things, policies and what not, it is generally my fault that I lost my position earlier than I expected.
Think of this. Stop, Drop, Roll is the way you put out a fire so to keep one from starting….Stop, Listen, and then take action. I mean this in social terms.
Have a good one.
