I have learned...

I have learned...raising my children in this sinful world is hard to be set apart.
We want the world to see something different in us.
Romans 12:1 - I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.

I have learned.....it is better to listen first then think before I answer.
James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.

I have learned....everyone makes mistakes and not to look up to people or brag on others because they will let you down. But God will never let us down.
Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

I have learned....how to recognize a spiritual battle and not let the devil steal my joy.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
I have learned....being full of pride can only lead to trouble so I try to be humble and put others before myself.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
