Fortunately not all young people are like this. However I've seen some young people, who I know well, who are very prideful, who think that they know it all, and won't listen to advice. They have seen other older adults do many things with seeming ease. Consequently, these young people think that many things are easy, that they can do anything without much effort: They know how to do it! However, when they do it themselves they try to make a quick job of it doing the project and make a mess of things. They get angry and grumble about this or that, about something not being right.
Our Spiritual Journey
Have you ever wondered where the world came from?
When we consider how the world got here, we are left with the following options (and perhaps others):
If the World has always been here,
- Would that mean that no one made it?
Or, if it had a beginning
If it had a beginning, then we have to wonder:
As limited human beings we can't be aware of everything. With all the noise, clutter, and distractions of life, wWe become aware of the things that are important to us. For example, for a mother with a baby, she hears the infants every cry. As a dog owner, I'm aware of the single scratch of my dog against the door when he wants in.
The same is true in becoming aware of life principles.
That which we focus on is that of which we become aware.
Today I read an article on Linked In Titled "Stop Using These 16 Terms to Describe Yourself 1" This got me to thinking. Over a number of years I've heard countless businesses being advertised that they are "The Best".

We become what we think and do. A man becomes kind by thinking kind thoughts and performing kind deeds.
A man becomes and angry man by thinking angry thoughts and acting out his anger.
A man becomes righteous by thinking rightly and acting rightly.
A man becomes a murderer by killing someone.

How to Overcome Pain During Intercourse
Part of being a man is loving your wife no matter how she is feeling, no matter if she is grouchy, no matter if you get sex when you want it or not. This is learning to love in a very true sense with genuine love. When she says "no" it is so easy to feel hurt and to even feel bitter. But as a husband one must continually put those feelings aside, throw those emotions away. If you run away, then even the little bit of good times will also be lost. In a very real sense, we husband have to be continually reaffirming, loving and kind.
Was there a real man named Jesus who lived 2000 years ago? Was he the "son" of God? Did he do any or all of the things that the Gospels say that he did? What does that mean? What is God?
Some Christians say that there is historical evidence that Jesus lived.
Some historians say that there is no record of Jesus in any of the contemporary writings of his time. There is only a brief mention of him in the writings of Josephus a hundred years later.
Wholistic health is a very complicated (and perhaps a very simple) equation.
It is comprised of many factors, including
mental: What we think and how we think greatly affect our mental health.
physical: Our bodies need good food, proper excercise, rest, sleep....
It seems to me that there is a vast difference between godliness and modern day christianity. Godliness is about believing and living by that which is true. So, it could be compared to living by the scientific method.

In some ways I'm a ..... probably more than most people. I'm very aware of the presence of germs and other contaminants all over the place. It doesn't stop me from living, but .... Whenever I've petted the dog and I'm about to eat, I'll wash my hands. When I'm cutting up raw meat, I realize how important it is to keep the raw meat away from any surface that it might contaminate. I don't use the same knife to cut up raw meat and then to cut up raw vegetables for the salad. Before I use my hands to handle food I first wash my hands.
