There are many common sayings and phrases that have great significance and meaning. Unfortunately, they have lost their original intent; they have become vain sayings that are unproductive and empty. Many people find themselves feeling just that: empty and unfulfilled.
When we take a look at our society, it has totally molded and shaped the culture we live in. We have been deceived into believing that “quick, fast and in a hurry” is the best and only way to do things. We carelessly use our words to put all the focus on ourselves, no regard for other people. We say phrases like, “I love you,” “how are you doing?” and “I’m sorry” out of routine and not out of sincerity.
We lack understanding of the basic concepts and theme throughout the Bible, and are passing down sayings and phrase as if they are Biblical truths. Not one time, have we stopped to think about or consider if these things are true. Our personal lives have become our spiritual lives, and this is a wreck less and dangerous thing to do.
It is time for us to stop and listen to what is being said. We no longer take the time to talk things out; we no longer want to listen to others, to grow and to become better; we no longer have family devotions; we no longer communicate. This has caused us to become prisoners of our minds. In the process, we have hurt family and friends. Our words, or lack thereof, have hurt the ones we love the most. Some families- to this day- still don’t speak to one another because of it.
You now know that cliches do more damage than good. The question is what are you going to do about it? Don’t you think it is time to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness? Humble yourself before the Throne of God, ask Him to help you, to give you wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Ask Jesus to give you a new mind, with a new heart so the healing process can begin. As long as you stay in your mind, your ways, your thoughts, and your opinions, Satan has you in the shackles of your mind. Freedom is found in the name of Jesus. He came to set captives free. The question is will you allow Christ to free you? Will you allow Him to give you understanding, and the newness of life that is only found in Him?
