Respect Others' Privacy

I have been meaning to post this last year but I keep forgetting so GOD reminded me this morning.

I find it really disrespectful when people send casual text messages from 10pm-7am.

I really do believe that there is really a time for everything.

We don't send text messages because we feel it's important to do so. We should learn how to respect others' privacy. Some people start sleeping at 9pm just like my mom-in-law. If it is really an emergency message or call, it is okay but casual texts or calls can wait. We should always consider what if the other person needed sleep. Whether others forget to switch their sounds off or because they leave it on for emergency purposes, please refrain from sending texts or making calls between 10pm-7am. Others even do their evening devotions during 10pm-11:59pm. Respecting other people's privacy is a way to let them know that they are important. I am not discouraging people who send spiritual messages but as Ecclesiastes say, "There is a time for everything."

We can start sending messages and making calls from 8am-9pm. Good thing for me I switch my number off or put my phone on silent but otherwise, respect others. What if others don't do what I do?

I have been guilty of this before GOD transformed me but I have learned to think of others during their private time. We think before we speak and act. That is GOD's Wisdom.

MAY THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICT YOU AND GIVE YOU THE WISDOM YOU NEED. I RESPECT EVERYONE. IF THERE IS ANYONE REBUKED BY THIS, PLEASE KNOW THAT THIS IS TO MY UTTERMOST CARE FOR OTHERS AND FOR YOU. THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING.

Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale.

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU - NO IF'S, NO AND'S, NO BUT'S!

ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO GOD ALONE!!!

P.U.S.H.

When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!

Wow did I have some catching up to do here.
Very good message. Often times people don't think. It's not necessarily out of disrespect, but you're right, it's important to think before we act/speak. I used to have a problem with not thinking before acting, well still do sometimes. :( I'm trying hard though. But yes, waking someone up with something not important could cause health issues as well. I know if we get a call in the middle of the night, it scares us thinking something has happened to a family member. Good light friendly reminder.
