Tuesday's Top Ten: The "Just Don't" List


  1. Don’t leave conservative comments on liberal sites.  They don’t like that.   They write things in response that you won’t like, vulgar, classless things.   They want things for you that are worse than death.
  2. Don’t respond to people who just want to rile you.   I promise, you are getting more revenge by not giving them a reaction than anything you could say.
  3. If you need to vent…vent.   Do it in your car, tell it to God, say it to your best friend.   But don’t hold it in.  It may cause your eyeballs to pop out.   You don’t want that, do you?
  4. If your good friend needs to vent, let them.  Don’t keep cutting in with your own great advice (looking in the mirror as I type).  If they are venting about their loved one, don’t ever say anything negative about that person!   Just listen.
  5. Don’t tell secrets you’ve promised not to tell.
  6. Don’t keep secrets that will harm someone else.  
  7. Don’t be contradictory.   (I know.   I read the above two lines as I wrote them.) 
  8. Don’t spend your life not liking yourself.   If you’ve done terrible things in your past, ask God to forgive you, and then forgive yourself.   It doesn’t matter what you’ve done…it really is okay to forgive yourself, even if someone else doesn’t.  Pray for that person.  Learn to like you.
  9. Never hold unforgiveness in your heart.  God has great rewards for those who have suffered.   It’s called justice, and it’s mentioned over 500 times in the bible.   Justice and righteousness are the foundation of God’s throne.   Forgive that person who hurt you because God’s compensation for what you’ve been through outweighs the hurt you’ve suffered.  Only He can repay like that.
  10. Never think that someone got away with hurting you.  Even if it devastated your life as you knew and loved it, and they seem to be prospering from it.   God is not mocked, what we sow, that’s what we will reap.   The reaping won’t be pretty, either.  Don’t miss your compensation by holding on to unforgiveness.

  1. What gets me is liberals want us to respect their opinions, but they have no respect for ours; don't get that. You should see some of the arguments that break out on the Prescott Facebook page, LOL.

    I do agree about the secret ones; there is a time to be silent and a time to speak up. One needs to be discerning to remember there is a difference and to act appropriately.

    1. Liberals don't just want us to respect their opinions, but to agree. It's pointless to argue, neither side is going to budge, and everybody ends up looking pretty bad. Thanks, Betty!

  2. All excellent points. The best one is simply giving friends a chance to vent, waiting until they've finished before offering an opinion...or holding that opinion back, as you suggested.
