Thou Shalt Not…

I am not sure who the author of this is but I thought the message was pretty encouraging and there was some pretty good “counsel”.

Encouraging Words

Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

Thou shalt not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

Thou shalt face each problem as it comes. You can handle only one at a time anyway.

Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you, for they make poor bedfellow.

Thou shalt not borrow other people’s problems. They can take better care of them than you can.

Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday; for good or ill, it is gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life today.

Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.

Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own.

Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration, for 90 percent of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.


Prov 11:14 “14 Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.”

Prov 12:15 “15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But he who heeds counsel is wise.”

Prov 13:10 “10 By pride comes nothing but strife, But with the well-advised is wisdom.”
