EXCUSES

                           

 

Your excuses are understood as long as you don't expect to be pardoned for them.

 

People say that every man has a skeleton or two in his closet. For me, this is not the situation.  You see, long ago I removed my skeletal bones and secretly buried them.

 

It's perfectly righteous to lie to a man if you first secure his permission. 

 

What grows old and tied? 'I'm so sorry' and 'I apologize if I wronged you'.

 

Many people are becoming tied of African-Americans blaming their circumstances on race, poverty, negative parameters and lack of good fortunate. They have all the tools inside of them to conquer most fears and to mitigate racism, and improve their lot. If African American would expel jealousy and moreover, they must stop waiting for God to come to their aid and solve problems, which in most cases are not insurmountable, but can be solved with commonsense and fortitude. 

 

Move away from always hoping, wishing, praying and begging God to bring the right people into your life. Chances are they have passed your way. And more likely, your eyes weren't focussed and your heart wasn't opened.

Man creates his own excuses for not contributing his energy and monetary contributions to the less fortunate. Days pass and his petty reasons take over once again. Finally, the discomfort he feels passes and he is at peace with his conscious and with his heart- and all is well again.
