Common Sense Memes

Some truths  I find through Facebook Memes — resonate common sense and courtesy. It’s usually easier to post them on social media and get a bunch of likes than it is to actually put them into practice.

One of My Favorite Memes

Life is hard enough. Don’t be difficult, I said to my reflection in the mirror. ~ Patsy Clairmont.

Who Me . . . Difficult?

Don’t be Difficult is a great encapsulation of something Christ said:

What I’m saying is, If you walk around with your nose in the air, you’re going to end up flat on your face. (Luke 14:10 ~ The Message )

Some days, especially when my nose is not where it should be, I need a mirror !

Hence, I made an acrostic – a list of concrete verbs, (verb gerunds to be precise) that make relationships difficult and even wreck some, and why.

Making the acrostic also put me into Scripture– a mirror from which I can be prone to wander.

Don’t  BE Difficult means Don’t be

 Demanding  —James 4:15

Insulting        —   1Peter 3:9-17

Fault-finding–    Matthew 7:3

Flaunting — Job 1:21

Ignoring — Proverbs 24:11-12

Complaining– Philippians 2:14

Underestimating — John 1:46

Lusting — 1 John2:16

Taunting — 1 Peter 3:9

How’s that for starters? I bet you can come up with an even better acrostic. What does it mean to you to say to your self: Don’t Be Difficult? That may be better advice than any of the old Facebook memes to date!
