The use of words
This weeks words are Captious and Asseverate. I've not heard of those words before so this should be a bit of a challenge.
This Blog Hop is hosted by Hidden Valley Simplicity.
Using the words
When I looked at the word captious it drew those two events together. A captious person draws attention to the faults of others, they are critical and liking to entangle others in arguments. I have a female rabbit with much the same personality. I love her to bits, but my...she keeps me on my toes.
I also have to deal with a lady in my church who is rather captious. And I am finding that I NEED to change my attitude in regards to her. It is simply part of who she is and I must not take her attitude to heart about me PERSONALLY.
I do so wish she was a person who could easily asseverate. People who do that are SO much easier to love. But you know what..... God doesn't call us to just love the easy to love people. He calls us simply to love....to especially love our Christian brothers and sisters. He doesn't tell us it will always be easy, but simply that we are to do it.
So be a person who is Captious or be a person who can Asseverate, God's call on me is the same....LOVE them.
Therefore, I must make the choice to do so, because LOVE is action, not just a . It is a choice. And so this I will choose. :)
Truth in Words
1. marked by an often ill-natured inclination to stress faults and raise objections
2. calculated to confuse, entrap, or entangle in argument
3. apt to make notice of trivial faults; critical
Super Challenge: asseverate: to affirm or declare positively or firmly
