Why do we all need to stop saying
"Oh my God"?
Because the second commandment forbids the abuse of God's name in every improper use. We are not to introduce it into our own speech except to bless, praise and glorify God. How often do you hear "Oh my Buddha" or "Oh my Allah". You don't, because if you did, someone might cut your head off.
Even if you're an atheist or other non-believer you should at least be respectful of others beliefs and not knowingly be demeaning of God and his name. So to use the creators name to accent your emotional speech implies that both you and God are of the same mind, which is not true.
Show respect please.
We humans have a habit of making some pretty rash judgments on people based on what we see, hear and think and it's a habit that really doesn't work very well. It lacks control and rules and it feeds our ego that requires us to be better than most. If he's taller then I'm wiser and if she's cuter then I'm richer and on it goes until our inner self has concluded that in some way we are better than the other. Then we sit back and smirk with contentment and we do this all within the blink of an eye. Amazing we are!
Just a word of caution. The next time you come across someone who looks more depraved than you do, be careful. As you look him over and calculate his worth, so is God reviewing your calculations, looking for errors.
"For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you." Mt 7: 2.
In other words your judgements are going to haunt you on your judgment day and that's a good thing to avoid. So instead of analyzing people, spend more time trying to figure out how to help them.
"How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few." Mt 7: 14
Why get mad? It only frustrates you and gets your brain all out of wack. Your blood pressure goes up, your mouth gets running and all of a sudden you've lost your composure and now things can happen that you'll probably regret. It's pretty common and it probably happens two or three times a day to most of us. The small stuff can be shrugged off, but sometimes it escalates and that's when annoying goes to anger and that's when you need to stop and think.
Most angry people are tired and they have problems and they don't know what to do and so they lash out at others. They let off steam and rant and rave and blame everything on everyone else and their miserable. Getting into an argument doesn't cure miserable, it enhances it and anytime your in one your being dragged into a bad situation where there are no winners. Both sides get hurt and sometimes it can even get fatal. So why do it? Maybe because over the last two or three generations we have been able to weaken our moral and religious values and at the same time strengthen the demonic values of greed, money and power. Maybe now we care less about God and man and our new secular values demand that we win those arguments in order to maintain our stinking pride.
How do you cure miserable? With good, not bad intentions! Enter Jesus with love your neighbor and helping others and turn the other cheek. If your in an argument, speak the truth, cause no harm and seek harmony. Whatever you can do to calm a situation is good and good is always better than bad. Don't worry about being humble or weak or about what other people think. God knows what's going on and the more you mimic the teachings of his son, the more your life will come together with the Father. It's that simple. God is love! Satan is evil! Take your pick.
"Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me." Mt 25:40.
