What Does Your Life Say About You?
by Dan Langerock

Have you ever thought about how you are perceived by others? What does your life portray about you: selfishness, love, anger, churlishness, peace, etc? Perhaps you don't care how others see you, but let's look at a few examples anyway.

Selfishness


How do you react when you cannot have your own way? Do you tell others what they are going to do for you rather than ask them if what you want from them is possible? Eventually, you will run out of people to push around and end up a lonely person probably wondering what happened. Think about how you treat others once in a while as a reality check. This type of person will go to extreme measures to control others and get their way in everything possible.


Love

This type of person is a joy to be around but very hard to find. They are characterized by an overriding nature of thinking the best of others, no matter what. I have known a few of these in my lifetime and it is a real blessing.


Anger

Their whole life is angry about something or mad at someone. They are destroying themselves with this attitude of anger because your body reacts to that anger by putting out chemicals to do what has to be done, and the by-product is stressing your body continuously, which is not a wise thing to do. Eventually, the anger eats away at your body in the form of illness and other maladies.

Churlishness

Churlishness is akin to anger but it strikes out at those around you. You don't care how you treat others because they are expendable. This can be seen in the way people drive nowadays and the lack of courtesy that graced decades gone by. As a test, how many people have said "please" or "thank you" in your presence this week? You can also see this in the way spouses treat each other sometimes.

Peace

This person you wish you could bottle and take home with you because they have a peaceful nature that is rare to find. Even when they are busy, they still maintain this peace in their lives. They are wonderful to be around, like soaking up sunlight on a lonely beach.



The things you portray in your life will help determine your quality of life, the amount of good friends you have and a lot of other matters. Introspection, the idea of looking at one's own words and actions and motives, is a valuable tool--but not many people choose to use it anymore.


What kind of life do you want? Do you care how you treat others and yourself. Sometimes our own worst enemy is us, the way we put ourselves down or allow others to do so. You are the person who must change yourself. No one else can help you until you want to be helped. Start thinking about how you want to be treated by others, and adjust how you interact with them.Otherwise you will become a sad, bitter and lonely individual. Think on these things!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
