Let’s face it, there are people in this world who are less desirable than others. Those people that, when you meet them, your first instinct is to run like a scalded dog! There are also people in this world who are more inviting than others. Those that, when you first meet them, your first instinct is to wrap them up in a BIG hug and never let them go! BUT then, the rational part of your brain kicks in, and alas you refrain. Yep. Definitely. Two TOTALLY different kinds of people.
You may be asking yourselves, in which category others may see you. To find out, here’s a few questions you should ask yourself.
1) When you walk into a room full of people, what do you see first, A) their faces, or B) the backs of their heads?
2) Do you most recognize people by their A) vertical smile, the smile on their faces, or B) their horizontal smile, also known as their butt cracks?
3) Upon engaging another person in conversation, does the person A) seem to have an overwhelming desire to hug you, or B) seem to be grimacing, and heaving as if holding in vomit?
4) When at an outdoor gathering do people A) complain about the swarm of gnats, or B) ask you to cut a hole in your britches to keep the gnats off of them?
If you answered “A” to these questions then CONGRATULATIONS! You’re desirable to be around! If you answered B to these questions then, sorry about your luck! You pretty much suck, and your social skills are lacking. Either that, or you’re not very hygienic. In simple terms, you stink! Wash your hair, brush your teeth, and give “ol’ possible” a swipe! (“ol’ possible” – when you wash as far down as possible, and you wash as far up as possible, but you fail to give “ol’ possible” a swipe.) The phrase “cleanliness is next to godliness” isn’t actually in the Bible. God looks at the inside of a person. However, maybe I should coin a new phrase, “cleanliness is next to a big group of friends!”
Not every person was designed to hold a big, captive audience, however, we were ALL designed to need others! No one, and I mean NO ONE can live this life alone! People need people, and that’s all there is to it! If you find that you’re alone more than you’re with others, you’d better start some self evaluating! And for those of you who think animals count as people? WRONG! Think again! You may have fur-friends, and those are great and all, but you need to try out your social skills with human beings who, unlike animals, won’t love you no matter what! Not to mention, animals love stinky things! Oh! And social media doesn’t count either! A “like” on Facebook doesn’t count as a hug! And watching TV preachers doesn’t count as going to church, unless you’re unable to get out of the house!
How will you ever know where you are on the stinky scale , or how lovable you REALLY are if you only interact with animals, or engage in social media?! PEOPLE NEED (real) PEOPLE!
Now that you’ve read this blog, and have asked yourself these questions; how do you rate? Are you an A, or B sort of person? If you answered B to most of the questions, what will you do to improve your situation, and work on having real relationships in your life? Trust me, it’ll be worth the work!
Do not forget to do good to others, and share with them, because such sacrifices please God. Hebrews 13:16
