Some people think that talking to yourself is a sign of being crazy. In this day of exotic telephone devises we have to look more than twice. This might be a recommendation of the habit. At least it is a reminder that we should follow our own advice.
I am always amused at preachers and teachers who try to instruct others about marriage when theirs is a mess. I have often wondered how our pulpits would change if we took the advice of Paul about leaders in the church,
(1Ti 3:4-5 KJV) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)When it comes to giving input on leaders we need to be open and honest. Unless we are asked it might just be better to keep things to ourselves.
So? Each of us needs to be responsible for our own house. If you are single that is extra hard because you don’t have anyone around to point out your flaws.
