The Real Pandemic- The Whine Flu

According to Wikipedia, "A pandemic is an epidemic of infectious disease that is spreading through human populations across a large region; for instance a continent, or even worldwide... Throughout history there have been a number of pandemics, such as smallpox and tuberculosis. More recent pandemics include the HIV pandemic and the 2009 flu pandemic." These pandemics are serious and cause much harm to those whom become infected. But there is a more serious pandemic that affects our lives even when it isn't flu season. It can harm you regardless of how healthy your human body may be. Right now, Swine Flu is all the rage! Throughout history though, the most potent and destructive pandemic has been, "the whine flu!" It cannot be treated with drugs, it cannot be overcome by simply eating healthy or exercising. The only way to fight it is with faith.

How do you know if you have the whine flu? Here are some tell tale signs:
-Fever, you're still red-hot over what was done to you yesterday or even 25 years ago.
-Shaking your fist at God always asking why?
-Vomiting out negative words that are destroying your relationships & your future


Let's be honest, most of us are bilingual and are very fluent in "whinese." We have a proclivity towards saying & believing negative things. In other words, we like to whine. Did you know that the Bible teaches us that, "The tongue has the power of life and death…" (Proverbs 18:21, NIV) Over the next few days I'll be posting some thoughts about this important topic & how we can vaccinate ourselves against the spread of the vicious sickness of negativity.

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care!
