6-7-2012- NEIGHBORS WHO BECOME PEST


PROVERBS 25: 17 = WITHDRAW YOUR FOOT FROM YOUR NEIGHBORS HOUSE; LEST HE BE WEARY OF YOU AND SO HATE YOU.


"REMARKS"

SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO STAY AT YOUR HOUSE MORE THAN THEY DO THEIRS IT SEEMS SOMETIMES. I KNOW THE FEELING. 

I HAD A HOMELESS PERSON WHO STAYED HERE AT THE CHURCH FOR AWHILE OFF AND ON FOR YEARS. I LIKED HELPING HIM AND HE HELPED ME A LOT AROUND THE PROPERTY.

MY ONLY PROBLEM I HAD WITH HIM WAS, WELL MAKE THAT ANOTHER PROBLEM HE HAD, WAS TO KNOCK ON MY DOOR EVERY MORNING, JUST AFTER I WOKE UP, WHICH AGGRAVATED ME, BECAUSE I JUST WOKE UP AND HAVE CERTAIN THINGS I DO BEFORE I AM READY TO GREET ANYONE AND HE WOULD WAIT OUTSIDE MY DOOR UNTIL HE SAW THE LIGHT COME ON, OR HEARD ME INSIDE AND HE WOULD KNOCK.

SEEMS, THE OLDER I GET THE MORE AGGRAVATED I BECOME ABOUT LITTLE THINGS, I PROBABLY SHOULDN'T GET AGGRAVATED BUT, I DO.

SO, ONE MORNING I SAID, YOU SURE KNOW HOW TO HASSLE ME. WELL, I GUESS IT HURT HIS FEELINGS BECAUSE HE LEFT THE PLACE AND I HAVEN'T SEEN HIM IN A LONG TIME. I FEEL BAD NOW AND WISH I HADN'T SAID WHAT I DID, OR MAYBE IT WAS THE TONE OF MY VOICE, IN WHICH I SAID IT.

BUT THE SCRIPTURE ABOVE SEEMED TO HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD, BECAUSE FOR ME, IT WAS THAT WAY.

AND IN PROVERBS 27: 14 = ADDS ANOTHER SENTIMENT TO THIS SITUATION; 

HE THAT BLESSES HIS FRIEND WITH A LOUD VOICE, RISING EARLY IN THE MORNING, IT SHALL BE COUNTED A CURSE TO HIM. 

WOW, THAT'S PRETTY STRONG, BUT TRUE. 

ANYWAY, SOMETIMES THINGS BUG A PERSON AND SOMETHING IS SAID, MAYBE DESERVEDLY OR NOT, BUT WE MUST REMEMBER, IF SOMEONE IS AT YOUR DOOR CONSTANTLY, IT MIGHT MEAN THE PERSON IS AWFULLY LONELY AND NEEDS YOUR COMPANY, ESPECIALLY THOSE WITHOUT CHRIST, AS THEIR FRIEND AND CONFIDANT. 

REMEMBER, THE SCRIPTURES ARE THERE TO HELP CORRECT SITUATIONS IN LIFE AND WITH IT, YOU CAN SHOW A PERSON THAT GOD, YAHWEH,THROUGH OTHER PEOPLE, HAVE BEEN THERE AND KNOW IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN, TO SOMEONE ELSE.
