The World's Wisdom ... or Better Said ... FOOLISHNESS! (part 2)

Today ... I continue with an evaluation of the advice given in the Good Housekeeping article, Why it feels so good to be just a little bad! 

4. Procrastinate, then tell yourself you're being creative: You won't necessarily be lying. Putting something off can ratchet up inspiration, especially if you're the type of person who works well under pressure. While you're wasting time, be sure to check out plenty of videos of kittens on treadmills and cute puppies in baskets. 

Hmm. "You won't necessarily be lying." Really? And what about "wasting time?" What does the Bible have to say about these things? The first is a no-brainer, as God always speaks truth and desires the same of us. As to the use of time, the Apostle Paul tells us that we are to make the best use of our time (Ephesians 5:15-16). Too many of us waste our time pursuing such trivial things. Instead, we need to be wise and invest our time in the things that will count for God and eternity!

5. Don't censor yourself: Swear when you stub your toe. Believe it or not, there is some evidence that colorful language can ease pain and may even help you bond with others. Plus, sometimes you just have to toss an F-bomb. 

Did I just type what I think I did? I mean, do we just HAVE to toss an F-bomb from time to time? Really? Again, the Bible is clear. How clear? You be the judge: "Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving" (Ephesians 5:4). 

Are you beginning to see why I have titled these posts as I did? You talk about foolish advice! More tomorrow! Until then . . .

Thanks for stopping by . . .
