Jack’s Winning Words 6/3/15
“Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.” (Frank Tyger) Being a good listener means that you will be able to hear the difference between right and wrong. The Bible describes people who have “itching ears,” wanting to hear what pleases. Isaiah describes them: “Give us no more visions of what is right. Tell us pleasant things.” Discrimination can be a good thing when it comes to ears. Using ears properly won’t cause you trouble. ;-) Jack
FROM ST. PAUL IN ST. PAUL: good words today, Jack, thanks! btw, sometimes when my ears itch, it only means they I have too much wax in them:):)====JACK: Maybe it's not the wax, all that ear hair that causing the itch.====ST. PAUL: why does hair grow where its not wanted and it falls out where we DO want it???====JACK: The Bible says that "the very hairs on your head are numbered." I wonder if that includes nose hairs and ear hairs?
FROM DC IN KANSAS: Yes. God gave us two ears and only one mouth.====JACK: ...to use accordingly.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: I think I've been reminded a time or two that we have one mouth and two ears for a reason...and to figure it out! :-) Good listeners are a precious commodity, that's for sure. (But smooth or effective talkers are also sometimes needed!) Good WW to remember today ====JACK: Do you remember Jackie Gleason in the Honeymooners?...."I've got a BIG mouth!" That was a funny TV series. Too short!
FROM TL IN MICHIGAN: I frequently find comfort in Winning Words. Many times it just puts a smile on my face.====JACK: It's hard to imagine how the daily WWs might come across to those who read them. Thanks for your feedback.
