We would all like to have eloquence of speech, thinking it would earn us a right to be heard, but as Paul the apostle said...you don't want to get the focus on you but on the power of God.
1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (KJV)
2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Paul had a heart but he also spoke the truth. There was nothing devious about him. He wasn't presenting the Gospel for monetary reasons, he worked day and night to earn his way.
I Thessalonians 2:9 For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.
Being privileged is not a grant to become prideful and ostentatious. Quite the opposite, it should humble one's character to know all human's are equal in the sight of God. He does not look at the outward appearance of a man, but looks at the heart.
1 Samuel 16:6-7 (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord's anointed is before him.
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
God gives us all a conscience to breathe in right from wrong. It's embedded in every fiber of our being unless your conscience is so seared that it prevents you from hearing it.
The conscience makes our mind think twice about being a tyrant, a bully, an instigator or psychopath. It doesn't rush to do evil because it is better than going to an amusement park. Taking orders from the devil doesn't occur to most unless they are intentionally on the same team. It's these type of people who believe they must honor their true commander above their position as leaders of this world.
This brings me to Kim Jung-Un if that is his real name. Who really knows as straight lines are always smeared with acrylic paint drawn outside the ethical boundaries of global conspiracies.
Jung-Un just became profoundly brilliant in ways we never thought he could. His words rang in the New Year like bells from a chapel, chiming their way through history to declare absurdity and folly. I hope he is proud of himself, "I've got a nuke button on my desk." Does your threat mean your parents are going to take away your squirt gun because you are threatening the world with it?
Kim Jung-Un you deserve an Emmy for playing the most sinister mob like character who fades into the deep dark abyss. I hope your children are proud of their papa for displaying such puerile behavior. Such tantrums reflect a need for attention not seen on laminated floors with kicking shoes and swinging fists.
Maybe it's time for a change, a change of diapers where one grows up to be a respectable man who doesn't have to be a macho guy who bellows till it becomes a bit obnoxious. If you decide to change, do it for your children. They are watching and their memories go along with them as they find their place in this world. Do they want to be like Dad? Think about it.
And as far as brilliant is concerned...if you intend to stay on script, I feel sorry for you because it doesn't have a happy ending. Doing wrong never pans out in the eyes of God. If you choose to be brilliant and wise, humble and meek...God can lead you out of the lagoon into a higher calling than sitting at your desk with a nuke button.
