CommentsJGC, very well said my friend.
I have been alive long enough to say that some of the most spiritual, intuitive and understanding people I have been blessed to meet were barely literate. In fact, one late sister who was a dear friend could not read at all. But when I was troubled I always sought her advice. She was un-encumbered with this world’s knowledge and when she spoke the best advice came only from the heart and her good will. I miss her greatly. When I think of her I am always reminded of this passage.
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” (James 3: 17, 18)
Mrs. Jackson is the proof that pride tends to sour good knowledge. Another verse that speaks to that matter is as follows.
“In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” (Prov 10: 19)
The best qualities of man like love, kindness, spirituality, intuitiveness and understanding can be complimented by a good use of language and much education but it can, and often is, spoiled, when the element of pride enters in.

On second thought, perhaps she would as soon I didn't know the meaning of the words she is using?

We will always respect the office of the president but on this two way street
Bill O’Reilly was heard on the factor recently parroting the all too familiar adage about always “respecting the office of the President even if you don’t necessarily respect the president.” The discussion was about Obama’s heated reply to the outbursts of one Texas based TV reporter who couldn’t wait to speak until the question and answer period of the meeting took place. Politico has labeled the incident as - ‘The outburst heard round the world.’More...
