    That was "good advice"? I don't think so.

    This follows up on my story "What Did Jesus Mean?" which has plenty of input. I thought I'd test the Pollyanna theory of giving more after having been used and abused. My neighbor conned me out of $20 a year ago, saying he'd be back "in 5 minutes" to repay the short term loan...

    I Never Forget.

    It's not that I won't, it's that I CAN'T. When I am offended or angered by someone, I will remember it forever until I have vengence. Most of the time, I can go without vengence though. But, if I do that, I will always remember the way the person treated me or someone I care...

    I Wont Turn

    I am not so strong to show my other cheek when I got slapped on my face. It hurts a lot. I just try to hide my other cheek from getting slapped with my hands. However I get slapped on my other cheek also very easily. Teachers pull my hands and give tight slaps on both of my...

    What Did Jesus Mean?

    Most of us know of the "turn the other cheek" quotation from "The" Bible. Most think it advocates passivity as an example of a higher path. I heard that, too, but when a friend shared the following insight I took pause. My Sikh friend said that in the time of...

    Don't Slap Me Unless You Really Really Mean It !

    Liars are the absolute worst. If you lie to me once I'll probably never trust you the same way again. I won't lie to you because I know how much it hurts to be lied to.
