Dangers of Globalism to American Sovereignty: 1. Globalism is super-socialism, one big melting pot. 2. The U.S. is viewed by many as a rich, spoiled, stupid, sugar daddy. Other nations would be the takers and we would be the givers, lowering our standard of living. The UN often voted against us despite all our foreign aid. 3. Despite our flaws the USA brings the best (human) hope for some semblance of order and reducing world chaos. 4. Losing our sovereignty means losing our democracy. American voters would lose self-determination. 5. Immigration attitudes, illegal criminals would become wilder. Let’s pray for wisdom for our leaders!

Caring listens versus overtalking

  • Good conversationalists know how to listen—-
  • some passing trains  never seem to end—-
  • verbal incontinence infers that I am more important than you —pride—-
  • a low self image, over-talking, might be trying too hard to sell self to others—-
  • or a lack of love or undeveloped social skills—-
  • we can serve others not only with our hands but our ears—-
  • life is not all about you: Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter said that her father wanted to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral—-
  • why are we spending time with the other person?: encourage, bless them? counsel them? initial acquaintance? fellowship? business meeting?—-
  • what’s appropriate at work is not necessarily so in social interaction—-
  • “the [flesh] drives, the Holy Spirit gently leads.” – Harold Burchett—-

“He who restrains is word has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding. Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is counted prudent.” (Proverbs 17.27-28 NAS)(Prov 18.2).
