10 Things to Avoid at All Costs

Updated on July 28, 2016

Get your head out of the sand and get moving!

My Top Ten

  1. Going to Hell
  2. Marrying the wrong person
  3. Being the wrong person
  4. Being shot
  5. Losing your temper with the police
  6. Being obnoxious
  7. Going to Hell (I know it's already listed... I just wanted to emphasize it again!)
  8. Forgetting to forgive
  9. Being unkind
  10. Being selfish

The road is clearly marked...

You can't hide, no matter what you do!

How to Avoid the Above

  1. Avoid Hell by getting saved....Salvation is free to everyone, no matter how bad you think you are or how awful you think your past is.....("Dear Jesus, I recognize that I am a sinner in need of salvation, I believe that you died for me and that you rose from the dead. Jesus, come into my heart. I receive you as my Lord and Savior now. And, according to Romans 10:9-10, I am now saved. Thank you Father for saving me ."
  2. Avoid marrying the wrong person by waiting until you meet the right one. If you are honest with yourself, you will know the right one when they come along.
  3. Avoid being the wrong person by improving your character. Ask yourself ths question, "Am I the kind of person I would want to befriend?" If you don't want to be a friend to yourself, chances are no one else will like you .
  4. Avoid being shot by.......hm-mm.....I really don't know how.
  5. Avoid losing your temper with the police by "shutting up ". Shut-up! Shut-up! Shut-up! When the police stop you for speeding or having no tail light, shut-up. Take the ticket, the scolding or the warning, silently. Tell them thank you and drive off slowly. You can talk when you go to court.
  6. See number 3 and number 5.
  7. See number 1.
  8. Avoid forgetting to forgive by practicing forgiveness on a daily basis. Un-forgiveness kills, forgiveness liberates. No matter what they have done to you or to your family, you must forgive. If you practice forgiving the smaller things, you will find it easier to forgive bigger things.
  9. Avoid being unkind by treating others as you would like to be treated. We all have moods, but
    we must learn to control them and not pour our bad attitude out on some unsuspecting co-worker or family member. A smile will take you farther than a mile.
  10. Avoid being selfish by learning how to be a cheerful giver. You have things in your possession that you no longer need, no longer use, and no longer like. You are just keeping them because your Aunt Bessie gave them to you. Call the charity truck today and give those things to someone who will appreciate them.

      Ooooooops! That's only nine we repeated going to hell. Sounds like you have all or most of the bases covered.

      I'm Guilty of #5. Got pulled over, cuz the cop couldn't clearly read my licence plate, it was fading due to age.

      I'm 62 years old. This really young Cop comes up and tells me he's going to educate me.Hmmmmmmmmmm?!

      Tells me about the plate, and writes me a warning citation for it, not really a ticket, and I ask when does the education lesson begin.

      I Bought some white paint and a brush, touched up the paint. 2 hours later, reported to the nearby police station, got hold of the cop, showed him the plate and he tore up the warning. He could have saved the paper and ink and the wasting of both our time.

      It cost him more to stop me, than to let it slide, so who taught who?
