What would grandpa and grandma say?

I'm old school. I believe in having good manners, showing others respect and helping others who need me.

Never hate a person; dislike the behavior.

With so many things coming back in style, I can't wait until loyalty and morals become the new trend again.

Never blame anyone in your life. Good people give you happiness. Bad people give you experiences. Best people give you memories.

Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

And, most of all, forgive.

A teacher friend of mine, Rose Gladney, explained poor behavior this way, "No home training."

Things were better before they expelled Jesus Christ from public schools.

I would like this person and his well mannered family to be my neighbor.

Amen Mr. Segura. You have some good ideas for living life, but don't hole your breath for the masses to adopt your ideas anytime soon. This is not a utopian type government we live under, and neither is the society we live within. We live in a society where many calls good evil, and evil good; there are those who live among us who put darkness for light, and light for darknes; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! There are those who are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight! These are indications proving many people are out of control.

"He who has no control over his own spirit, is like a city broken down with no walls!" ( Proverbs 25:28 ) Such an individual is not going to do a great job of representing the Kingdom of God because they will not possess SELF-CONTROL! It will simply be a situation where the "Flesh" of and individual will direct that person's life away from the lamp-light God's word provides for one's feet; and the pathway-light his word provides to lightup where God wants one to travel! ( Psalms 119:105 ).

"Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it." ( Isaiah 5: 14 ).

Every person with life have what time they live that life in order to get it right. It will in the end be each person's own choices, decisions, actions they choose to make...the things they did or chose to not do, .....which will be used to separate them in the eternal judgement.

32) And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33) And he shall set the sheep on his right hand , but the goats on the left. ( Matthew 25: 32-33 ).

Joshua, told the Israelites one day, "If it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve;.................."but as for me and my house, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD." ( Joshua: 24:15 ).

" I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: THEREFORE choose life that both thou and they seed may live." ( Deuteronomy 30:19 ).

So in the final judgement of the disposition of humanity, it comes down to who each individual chose to follow, serve, and live for!

Jesus Christ said, " He that is NOT with me... is AGAINST me; and he that gathereth NOT with me scattereth abroad!" It is as simple as that.

Actually Matthew misquoted Christ. Mark 9:39-41: Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, 40 for whoever is not against us is for us. 41 Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward."
