The Best Advice I Have Ever Been Given


I love reading interviews, especially when the person being interviewed is asked, “What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?” because I’m fascinated by the words that stick with a person for a lifetime. Unfortunately for me, I’ve never been able to answer that question because no clever words of wisdom have ever really indwelt themselves within me (except of course for certain Scripture, but that was not told to me—I read it).

That is until today my friends!!!

I was talking on the phone with my Dad this morning, and he gave me the following advice:

“Haters are like kidneys—it’s all about filtering through the junk to release the good.”

Let us all then be like kidneys:

Filtering through the haters, doubters, naysayers and skeptics by continuing to pursue the miraculous works that our Holy Father has placed upon our lives—a vision that is only grand enough for the Lord Himself to believe in. “This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:10b

Much love.

Wouldn't the haters be the metabolites or urea and you the kidney? Mild technicality :)
