TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Song of Solomon 1:1-4:16  King Solomon and His New Bride Rejoice in Their Love.  Solomon, a son of King David became king.  While visiting a vineyard, Solomon is swept away by the young peasant woman working the vines.  The king seeks the woman’s hand in marriage.  Casting her insecurities aside, she eventually consents.  Solomon’s wife longed for the security of his presence.  The basis of true love is commitment.  A relationship built on true love is void of deceit, manipulation, or exploitation.   

2 Corinthians 8:16-24  Apostle Paul Sends Cohort, Titus, to Receive Collection from the Corinthian Congregation.  Following the Lord’s examples, Christians are called to be generous; a stingy Christian should be extinct; however, sacrificial giving must be responsible.  Give until it hurts but not to the point where it hurts the financial needs of your family and relatives. Paul used every safeguard to maintain integrity in the collection of money for the Jerusalem church.  Christians must have the highest standard of financial responsibility.

Psalm 50:1-23  WISDOM: TO FEAR AND HONOR GOD.  Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:  Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.

Proverbs 22:22-23  Advocate for the poor.  Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will exact life for life.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (9/5)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Ecclesiastes 10:1-12:14  Wisdom for Life.  A wise person chooses the right road; a fool takes the wrong one.  If your boss is angry at you, don’t quit!  A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes.  Kings and rulers make a grave mistake when they give great authority to fools and low positions to the wise … Conclusion: Fear God and obey His commands, for this is everyone’s duty.  God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, good and bad.

2 Corinthians 8:1-15  Give joyfully.  Your giving should not make life easy for others and hard for yourselves. There should be some equality.  Right now you have plenty and can help those in need. Later, they’ll have plenty and can share when you’re in need. In this way, things will be equal.

Psalm 49:1-20  Faith vs. Wealth.  In the morning the godly will rule over the rich.  The rich bodies will rot in the grave, far from their grand estates.  But as for me, God will redeem my life … When the rich die, they take nothing.  In this life, they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success.  But they will die like all before them and never again see the light of day.  People who boast of their wealth will die, like animals.

Proverbs 22:20-21  Sayings of the Wise.  I have written thirty sayings for you,  filled with advice and knowledge.  In this way, you may know the truth and take an accurate report to those who sent you.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Ecclesiastes 7:1-9:18  Wisdom for Life 

2 Corinthians 7:8-16  Apostle Paul is elated.  The Corinthian congregation listened and repented from their sins.  They were also quite hospitable to Apostle Titus, Paul’s co-laborer in Christ, during his visit in Corinth.   Paul is grateful.

Psalm 48:1-14  God, Our Deliverer, Protector, and Provider.   God came to Jerusalem’s defense, revealing Himself in its towers.   The evil kings joined forces to conquer the city but was stunned and gripped with fear.  In no time, God destroyed them  all;  by His mighty power.  Let our minds be filled with good thoughts of God, His loving-kindness, His power.  Glory be to God for the great things He has done; He who will lead us into eternity. 

Proverbs 22:17-19  Listen to the words of the wise; apply your heart to my instruction.  For it is good to keep these sayings in your heart and always ready on your lips.  I am teaching you today—yes, you— so you will trust in the Lord.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Ecclesiastes 4:1-6:12  On the Advantages of Companionship, Wisdom and the Futility of Chasing Political Power and Wealth, Keep All Promises to God, God Has Decided Our Destiny.  King Solomon knew, the ones who needed this book were least likely to read it. They were busy enjoying life — wildly driving towards a cliff.  Solomon substituted powerful statements that would seize reader’s attention and slowly turn them back to God.  Solomon also shared his own conclusions.

2 Corinthians 6:14-7:7  Work toward holiness.  Fear the Lord.  Apostle Paul warns Christians not to team up with unbelievers for righteousness cannot partner with wickedness, and to work toward complete holiness for fear of the Lord.  Apostle Titus informs Paul the Corinthians have repented from their evil ways.  Paul is elated.

Psalm 47:1-9  Praise be to God our Almighty King!  For God is the King over all the earth.  God reigns above the nations, sitting on His holy throne.  The rulers of the world have gathered with the people of the God of Abraham.  For all the kings of the earth belong to God.  He is highly honored.

Proverbs 22:16  A person who gets ahead by oppressing the poor or by showering gifts on the rich will end in poverty.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (9/2)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Ecclesiastes 1:1-3:22  Apart from God, life is empty and unsatisfying.  Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. (12:13)  King Solomon, the son of great King David, pursues worldly pleasures.  At last, He realizes and laments life’s fleeting nature and its inequities, “Learning, pleasure, work, laughter–all is vanity.  People live, work hard, and die, only to leave their belongings to someone else; the wicked prosper over the righteous, the poor are oppressed.”  King Solomon concludes, “Fear God and keep His Commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” (12:13)

2 Corinthians 6:1-13  Apostle Paul fervently addresses the fence-sitters of the Corinthian Church–those not yet born-again–to open their hearts and accept God.  God’s power is working in us … We serve God whether people honor, despise, slander, or praise us … We have been beaten but we have not been killed.  Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others …  Oh, dear Corinthian friends! We have spoken honestly with you, and our hearts are open to you. There is no lack of love on our part, but you have withheld your love from us.  I am asking you to respond as if you were my own children. Open your hearts to us!

Psalm 46:1-11  The God of Israel is our fortress.  The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us.  God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.  So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.  Let the oceans roar and foam.  Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!  “Be still, and know that I am God!  I will be honored by every nation.  I will be honored throughout the world.”

Proverbs 22:15  Spare the rod, spoil the child.  A youngster’s heart is filled with foolishness,  but physical discipline will drive it far away.  (Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. [Proverbs 13:24])

Dale Carnegie’s “Twelve Ways to Persuade”– Place Others First (VII)

Sounds simple enough … in head-knowledge, anyway.  If I could do this 24/7, especially amidst adversity, I will see a halo over my head.

Certainly not yet but I sure can try.

(7) Principle 7: How to get cooperation — Let others believe your ideas are theirs

Make suggestions.  Let others think they reached your conclusion.  People don’t want to be told what to do.  There’s more enthusiasm and buy-in when people are consulted:

A salesman for an x-ray manufacturer sold his equipment to one of the largest hospitals in Brooklyn.  How?  By seeking his potential customer’s suggestion and thoughts on product-development and improvement!

(The salesman didn’t tout his horn or force his ideas on his customer.  Smart guy — a well deserved sale!)

(8) The magic formula: Try to see the situation from others’ perspectives

The glass is always half full.  People respond favorably to warmth and encouragement; never to harsh actions and criticisms.

(Right on Mr. Carnegie!  You and Aesop understand human nature so well!)

(9) Empathize with others’ ideas and desires.

Three-fourths of the people you’ll meet are hungering and thirsting for empathy.  Give it to them.  They will love you:

A manger of an elevator-escalator company persuades a leading hotel manager to shutdown his escalator for a few hours.  The first manager suggests, “I know your hotel is quite busy and understand your concern.  We would like to keep the escalator shutdown to a minimum.  Our diagnosis of the situation, however, shows that if we don’t complete the job now, your escalator may suffer more serious damage resulting in inconveniencing your guests for several days.”

(Fill a need!  Let people know “what’s in it for them.”  Love your insights, Mr. Carnegie!)

Last but not least, the chapter concludes with a 2500-year-old Chinese wisdom:

The reason why rivers and seas receive the homage of a hundred mountain streams is that they keep below them.  Thus they are able to reign over all the mountain streams.  So the sage, wishing to be above men, put himself below them; wishing to be before them, he put himself behind them.  Thus though his place be above men, they do not feel his weight; though his place be before them, they do not count it an injury.

Truth — universal, eternal, supreme.  🙂

Dale Carnegie’s “Twelve Ways to Persuade”– Empathize, Ask Questions, Listen (VI)

If someone told you to take a hike, what would you do?  Would you turn the other cheek?

Me?  Not a chance … unless I was an actress reading a script!  An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth — BRING IT ON BABY!

But where does that get me?  Not resolution.  Bridges burned — at the speed of lightening, that’s for sure. 

Searching for a win-win solution?

(4) Principle 4: Begin in a friendly manner

Mr. Straub successfully negotiated his rent with his landlord.  How?  Unlike the other tenants, who complained and criticized, Mr. Straub met his landlord with good will and enthusiasm.  He commented on how the landlord ran the building and would like to stay another year but couldn’t afford it.  The landlord immediately offered to lower the rent.

Problem-solve with the friendly, appreciative, empathetic approach! (Yes, Mr. Carnegie!)

(5) Principle 5: Get the other person to agree

Did Socrates tell people they were wrong?  No, he was wise.  He asked questions where the opponent would have to agree; getting the “Yes” responses.  Respect, empathize, listen, help the other party think and decide. For example, here’s a story of a bank customer who refused to give out certain information when opening his account:

Banker: “The information you chose not to disclose is unnecessary … however, suppose you have money in this bank at your death.  Wouldn’t you like to have the bank transfer it to your next of kin, the person entitled to it according to law?

Customer: “Yes, of course.”

Banker: “Don’t you think it would be a good idea to give us the name of your next of kin so that, in the event of your death, we could carry out your wishes correctly?”

The young man’s attitude softened and changed when he realized that we weren’t asking this information for our sake but for his sake.

Now why didn’t I think of this?! … Because my name isn’t Socrates! (But I’ll sure try asking the right questions.  Thanks Mr. Carnegie!)

(6) Principle 6: Handling complaints — Listen.  Let others do the talking.

The majority who try to persuade talk too much.  Listen.  Let others talk.  Let them tell you a few things.  Make others feel important.  Don’t stir envy.

Henrietta was good at her job but for the first few months, she had no friends.  Why?  She bragged about her accomplishments.  The tables turned when she began listening and let her associates share their accomplishments.  Now, Henrietta listens to others’ joys and mentions her achievements only when asked.

(Smart lady.)

A teenage girl rebelled against her overbearing mother — until the mother stopped talking and began to listen.  The daughter expressed her thoughts, feelings, and her confusion about growing up.  The mother/daughter relationship improved when the mother began to listen.

(I have a preteen son.  I will take your advice to heart, Mr. Carnegie!)

Thoughts?

Tomorrow, we’ll discuss:

  1. How to get cooperation
  2. A formula that will work wonders for you
  3. What everybody wants

Stay tuned! 🙂

Dale Carnegie’s “Twelve Ways to Persuade” — Blow Off Steam or Problem-Solve? (V)

After 43-years on this planet, I’ve learned — often the hard way — that the lessons I choose not to learn will reoccur until I do.  SO … no more blame games.

Stop growing and die or change and thrive!  I choose the latter!

Do you simply want to blow off steam or do you want to problem-solve?

If you answered, “Problem Solve,” read on.

Dale Carnegie shares his expertise on the art of persuasion — twelve in all.  (You’ll have to bear with me.  Don’t care to experience information overload.  I’ll share three insights per day):

  1. You can’t win an argument — avoid it.
  2. Don’t make enemies.  Show respect for other person’s opinions.  Never say, “You’re wrong.”
  3. If you’re wrong, admit it.

(1)  You can’t win an argument — avoid it. (Mr. Carnegie, had I only read your book sooner!  But then, perhaps I wasn’t ready until I fell on my face a few dozen times and realized, “What I’m doing isn’t working.  I have to change.”)

You can’t win an argument.  You lose it, you lose it; if you win it, you lose it.  Why?  If you triumph over the other man and shoot his argument full of holes and prove him wrong, you’ll feel fine but you’ve made him feel inferior.  You’ve hurt his pride.  He’ll resent your triumph.  And … a man convinced against his will is a same man still.  Avoid the argument, change the subject, and give him appreciation.

(Right, Mr. Carnegie.  Especially politics and religion — they’re off limits — unless individuals share similar views.)

(2)  Don’t make enemies.  Show respect for other person’s opinions.  Never say, “You’re wrong.”

(So true.  Who wants to be told they’re wrong? — Especially those higher ups on the corporate ladder.  If you work for a humble, knowledgeable, caring boss — leader of leaders with a great big heart, let us know.  It’s always eye-opening to learn about the lives of inspirational role models!)

We sometimes find ourselves changing our minds without any resistance or heavy emotion, but if we’re told we’re wrong, we resent the comment and harden our hearts. Obviously, it’s not the ideas themselves that are dear to us, but our self-esteem which is threatened.

(So then, Mr. Carnegie, how do we promote change?  Response … “Let others believe it’s their idea.” Hmm … can’t wait to learn more.  Details to come in the next few days.)

(3)  If you’re wrong, admit it. If we know we’re going to be rebuked, isn’t it far better to beat the other person to it and do it ourselves?  Isn’t it much easier to listen to self-criticism than to bear condemnation from alien lips — say them before others have a chance.  More likely than not, a generous, forgiving attitude will be taken and your mistakes will be minimized.

(I once saw this in action … I gave the woman a silent standing ovation! …  A dedicated Sunday School teacher was late on church’s cleaning day.  The pastor’s “perfect” wife was ready to chew her out.  The teacher calmly walked in and said, “I’m so incredibly disorganized and so out of it.  I just couldn’t get my four little ones out the door in time.  I’m SO ashamed.”  … The teacher took the wind right out of the “perfect” pastor’s wife.  Wise woman — YOU GO GIRL!)

  1. You can’t win an argument — avoid it.
  2. Don’t make enemies.  Show respect for other person’s opinions.  Never say, “You’re wrong.”
  3. If you’re wrong, admit it.

The distance between the head and the heart is one foot AND eternity. (Unknown)

Couldn’t agree more!  Love my head-knowledge to drop down a foot and become heart-knowledge.  It’ll happen … someday!

Wish me luck!

Dale Carnegie’s “Six Ways to Connect With People” (IV)

Yesterday, we discussed three ways to connect with people:

  1. Become genuinely interested in others
  2. Smile
  3. Say the person’s name often

Today, we’ll talk about Dale Carnegie’s three additional insights on relationship-building:

  1. Be a good listener.  Encourage others to talk about themselves
  2. Talk about other person’s interests
  3. Make the other person feel important — be sincere

(1) Be a good listener — remember, the people you are talking to are a hundred times more interested in themselves and their wants and problems than they are in you and your problems.  A person’s toothache means more to that person than a famine in China killing millions.  A boil on one’s neck interests the person more than forty earthquakes in Africa.

(I agree, for the most part; however, people also enjoy a stimulating discussion on world affairs.  Bottom line, “be a good listener.”)

(2) Talk about other person’s interests — Learn the other person’s interest and ask questions — the quickest way to build rapport and relationships!

(Right on!  However, don’t fire questions like a machine gun.  I once had a person do this to me. The experience haunts me to this day.  I thought she was my friend, not an interrogator.)

(3) Make the other person feel important. Be sincere. — The unvarnished truth is that almost all the people you meet feel themselves superior to you in some way, and a sure way to their hearts are to let them realize in some subtle way that you recognize their importance, and recognize them sincerely.

(Love, warmth, genuine interest — sounds like a plan!)

Thoughts? 🙂

Dale Carnegie’s “Six Ways to Connect With People” (III)

How to Win Friends & Influence People is an eye opener!  Practical, timeless classic on human relations — no wonder the book is celebrating its 70 years in print, not to mention 15 million copies strong!

Today, we’ll look at three of the six ways to build rapport with others (we’ll go over the rest tomorrow).

Dale Carnegie advises:

  1. Become genuinely interested in other people
  2. Smile
  3. Say the person’s name often

(1) Become genuinely interested in other people — if we want to make friends, let’s greet people with animation and enthusiasm.  People are not interested in you or me.  They are interested in themselves — morning, noon, and after dinner.

(Sharp insights, Mr. Carnegie.  No wonder your book sells!)

(2) Smile — Everybody in the world is seeking happiness.  Preserve a right mental attitude — courage, frankness, and good cheer.

(Yep, we are our thoughts!)

(3) Say the person’s name often.  To the person, it’s the sweetest and most important sound in any language — Franklin Delano Roosevelt knew that one of the simplest, most obvious, and most important ways of gaining good will was by remembering names and making people feel important — yet how many of us do it?

(Ooh, I am so guilty of this.  I will change.)

  1. Become genuinely interested in other people
  2. Smile
  3. Say the person’s name often

Gotcha, Mr. Carnegie!

Thoughts? 🙂
