Speaking of Brushing Teeth…

Just yesterday I published the previous post and discussed brushing one’s teeth (and brain) and just now, the very next morning, after doing just that I ate a handful of blueberries and have two further thoughts/verses to share with you which I think you’ll find not only very interesting but also extremely helpful and useful and applicable in your everyday life.

The first thought is that blueberries are soooo good.  Downright delicious in the opinion of my own taste buds but not just good  but, as a matter of scientific fact, good for you.  They are one of if not THE best, most healthy food one can eat.  Ever since leaving my job to follow God’s calling to full-time spiritual, Bible-based ministry, I haven’t been able to afford this nutritious and delicious but usually-expensive  food very often, but with summer’s arriving that changed and I’ve been eating them all week… and loving every minute of that (well, almost every minute – more on that in a minute).  The first thought/verse which came to mind was how the Bible, when directly addressing the topic of food, says that they’re all good (due to Who created them) but my lifelong experience with blueberries makes clear that some are even better than others.

  • “For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude” (1 Timothy 4:4)

The second thought is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT and useful and beneficial and powerful principles in life, and that’s this:  timing is everything!

And that truth was reaffirmed for the zillionth time in my life this morning when I ate the aforementioned handful of blueberries this morning shortly after brushing my teeth.  And it brought to mind one of my all-time most applied Bible verses:

  • “He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be reckoned a curse to him.” (Proverbs 27:14)

TIMING is EVERYTHING!  And can single-handedly turn what would otherwise be a great  thing into a horrific  thing.

Everyone will agree that it’s a terrific thing to bless someone.  And all the more if that someone is a friend.  And all the more still if it’s done loudly and noticeably than, say, in a whisper which maybe or maybe not the friend but certainly nobody else would be able to hear.  What a blessing, right?  NOT IF THE TIMING IS BAD.  Bad timing turns a terrific thing into a terrible thing, a blessing into a curse.

As I often say, “It’s not just what you do, it’s when  you do it!

I strongly encourage you to consider this anytime you decide to do anything which involves others.  Don’t just ask yourself if the action is right/wise but also if the timing is.  I know for sure you’ll be very, very glad that you started applying this principle in your daily life.

Bringing that full circle for the purposes of this post, eating blueberries is terrific… unless it’s right after brushing one’s teeth as I found out the hard/distasteful way this morning.

Those were the two thoughts/verses I wanted to share with you in follow-up to the previous post published yesterday, but I’ll add and leave you for now with a third, overarching, non-blueberry-related thought:  one of the (incalculable, immeasurable) results/benefits of Bible memory on a regular, systematic basis – which is both the purpose and goal of BibleMemory.ORG – one of the countless results is that one who memorizes, who ingests  the Bible will begin to see God and the Bible in everything.  (In pop culture terms, like “the Seinfeld of Christianity” as it were. 🙂 )  Every day if not hour if not minute.  All day every day.  I’ve seen this firsthand after I started memorizing entire books of the Bible, and it’s a wonderful way to wind through life in joy-filled, fun fashion.  Just like the Bible self-testifies:

  • “The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart” (Psalm 19:8)

Amen!
