PRINCIPLES: ITS ESSENTIAL

Thank you for visiting.

Hello Poeple. Happy Sunday.. xx

Yep, am on a roll today oh, man dem is on a roll.lol.

After Church we decided  well my friend that I waited for decided to pay  another church member that recently had a baby  a visit by a hiking a ride with another church member. So I tagged along and off we went. Cut long story short, ended up at a friends house, was left alone with her children ( boy and a girl) but they are soo adorable and not much of a disturbance. I was stuck in the kitchen too, imagine hubby and wife (both my friends) went off to others neighbours and enjoyed me playing nanny. I ended up cooking chicken, frying it all, and then cooking jrice too, took a pic below. I didn't think it was my best cos I missed out key ingredient I love my chicken knorr any day jor.

Back to the post of the today.

Ever wondered about what its means to have principles?? For some of us we actually have no clue what our principles are or what its about or involves (some of us need a time alone to grow and learn). Besides, principles is not something that becomes apparent, it takes people around you and circumstances to know you as a person. When I was much younger (teen years), people thought I was strict because I chose not to do certain things. Infact, I thought I was strict because I chose not to do certain things that I felt were morally wrong. To cut long story, I realised that its all part of principles, infact am not strict all, I just have grounded principles that guide my decisions and help me to reflect in areas of development.

Principles basically involves the fundamental truth you stand on and its forms or shapes your line of reasoning and decisions making process. In essence, its form a great part of our behaviour as its governs what we do and chose not to do.(you are welcome to google the rest). Moving on, principles are influenced by different factors from family, environment, education, society, friends, religions, experiences, work place etc. For some of us we have strong and clear principles about certain ideas, that is why some of us will not encourage an act or approve of a particular type of attitude (whether that is good or bad, its up to your conscience).

But my point is: Based on clear cut precise principles some people will chose to remain faithful to their partners not because they are not tempted or not willing to do it but because mentally their principles disapproves it and they are able to see the further implications, hence able to #renewtheirmind#. However, this illustration might not be applicable in all situations as some of have different mindsets and different ideologies.

Well, principles will encourage others to speak against injustice and do something about it even if it means sacrificing ones life. Principles helps  us to view the world around and interpret our behaviour and judge others too. Some of us we have healthy principles i..e its governed by good intentions, godly teachings that are of JESUS i.e. love thy neighbour as thy self. This is why, you have some Christians that are so loving and show  this love, in respect of your gender, race or culture. Sometimes you will find out that some people are willing to forgive despite all the wrong doings(grace also plays an important role here).

On the other hand, for some of us our  principles are polluted governed by selfish behaviour and unethical reasoning. This is why some of us will do anything absolutely anything i.e. wrong doings encouraged by negative intentions and not feel guilty because our core principles that govern our behaviour is not clear, clean and concise.

In a nutshell, before you and I pass any judgement lets think about our principles (what governs us and our sense of reasoning). So before I say some people are bad, I like to think their principles which governs their behaivour is already polluted and all of these manifests in their attitude and actions. All of which occurs from the mind set. It makes me wonder the type of thought process the person has in place or what they have fed their mind to come across like that. For instance, take the DANA AIR management or in fact the pilots that flew the plane, what were their principles?? money motivated or people i.e. humanity motivated. Am sure companies such as this will have visions and missions statement but what is the principles behind it?? Or do they communicate these principles to their staff. It not just Dana Air, its oil companies that have done damages too, causing havoc and issues for the indigenous people. It makes me wonder whether its robots that occupy the place or its human. Humans that are suppose to feel and understand the pain of others. Where is their principles? Again its stems from deeper roots and mental state.

All I can say is its essential we have principles, there should be a fixed non negotiable rules that should be in place and we should be accountable to. Lord, gave us our mind for a reason because he knew we are more than capable. So next time you do something silly most esp when its hurts others e.g. hitting your spouse, cheating, stealing etc don't try to pretend  its alright or that its acceptable,but admit that you have a problem and sort it out quick. Violence solves NOTHING. Hitting someone does not make it alright.

I will stop here, its important that we feed our minds with things that are good, healthy, noble, pure and of good reports. These things shape our behaivour and whatever we do today always ALWAYS has a consequence if you can see it now, you will either see it in the future or your generations will experience it.


To be honest, I feel like have lost the plot for this post.lol. Apologies.  Hope you got the gist of it.. chai, when I had this ministered to me in my mind it was following well ohh... smh.


God is love, love yourself and others too. xxx

    yeah principle......every facet of life is governed by principles...simply depends on the person involved...though, a problem or situation can make one deviate from a principle...thus, we need Christ in our lives to help us through.

    I'm feeling you on the principles thing. I still had a discussion about it with a friend last weekend. My stand: Always stand by your principles because If you compromise on basic principles, your vision starts getting blurred
