Thick Skin
(not a reference to my Rodan and Fields Global Skincare Business at TheBern.myrandf.com)

One definition of thick skin is the ability to keep from getting upset or offended by things other people say and do. It may be especially difficult when these people are our family and loved ones. But we should always focus on God and do our best and do what is right. Truly this is our greatest freedom from a fallen world. Our self centered society depends on trying to please everyone and on blaming someone for everything; when in reality, that is impossible.

Insight

Insight

Insight may be described as having penetrating mental vision or discernment—that faculty of seeing into inner character or underlying truth. With our digital world constantly bombarding us with mind altering bytes, we need to be able somehow to apprehend the true nature of things. I believe it is essential to have some quiet time to allow ourselves to connect with Truth. Currently it seems our egocentric society cannot understand that Truth. The Master of Confusion continues to prowl.
