I came across the following portion of scripture two times in the past week ? in two different Bibles. It is about living our lives in the spirit, where we can find the most contentment and joy. I know that there are often reasons we have certain portions of Scripture cross our paths. It spoke to my heart and I pray it speaks to yours as you read today. ?.?.?. live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature.

In my last column, I wrote about how jealousy had no place in the body of Christ. I also addressed how most of us have been either the victim or villain in regard to jealousy at one time or another. Today I want to continue that thought. In I Corinthians 3:3, Scripture tells us, "You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?" Many of us would say that we do not want to remain mere men and women, but rather blossom into men and women of God. Our aim should be to reach godly potential, not jealousy's potential.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN There are two hurtful habits that human beings can practice. One is gossip, the other its sister -- slander. Let me clarify the difference between the two. Gossip and slander are vices as opposed to virtues. Virtues are "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control" (Galatians 5:22). Vices are "quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, factions, slander, gossip, arrogance and disorder" (II Corinthians 12:20)

?To be civil ? to behave, that is, in a manner that takes into consideration the feelings and comfort of others ? means practicing the art of giving. By treating you the best way I know how, I appeal to the best in you urging you to do the same. The practice of civility is the applying of gentle force with the goal that everybody be a winner in the delicate game of social exchange.? Dr. P.M. Forni. ?Choosing Civility? ? ?Manners ?Joy ?Relationships ?Thoughtfulness ?

It has taken me many years, and lots of self-control, to not respond to the false allegations thrown at anyone living in the Glendale-La Crescenta--La Canada area who has the audacity to question the self-appointed Armenian leadership. The dissenters to their ideology have been labeled as "Odars" (others), bigots, anti-Armenian and racist. Anti-Semite and homophobe are two new labels added to their attack jargon. Armenians living in our area do not sing the same song.

The new year is here. What is your message for a prosperous 2009? Do good. Do no harm. Stay in love with God. These are the Three Simple Rules — the essence of a good life with God. When Methodism’s founder John Wesley said them, they sounded easy enough to follow — especially when compared to his 15-point sermons ... I wonder what will happen for us if we use the Three Simple Rules to shape our lives in 2009? Will we be able to call ourselves “prosperous” by Dec. 31?

Traffic was slower this week in the Rossmoyne area -- and it wasn't because of speed bumps or stop signs. In fact, traffic was at a standstill. It seems that two cars collided on Dryden near Cedar at such a speed that the impact crumpled the entire front end of one of the cars and flipped the other one on its side. Had children been crossing at that intersection, they could have been killed. Traffic also slowed down earlier this year on Stocker near Cordova when a car was traveling so fast that it jumped the curb and barreled across a lawn into the side of someone's house.

One week into the New Year, that's seven days, or approximately 168 hours since the crystal ball dropped at Times Square, and I'll bet those lofty New Year's resolutions you so foolishly made already are under siege. But not me. I resolved this year not to make any resolutions. I've sailed through the first week of the year oblivious to the temptation to correct any faults or set any goals. Before deciding not to resolve anything in 2012, I did some research. There are hundreds of websites that expound on how to make and keep New Year's resolutions.

My first exposure to the concept of public comment at governmental bodies was in the late 1960s, when I was employed by the Los Angeles Community Colleges. I worked in what was then called data processing and for a number of years had an office in the district headquarters when it was on Olympic Boulevard near Alvarado Street. The board met in the same building, and my co-workers and I often attended the meetings. There were gadflies who monopolized public comments to such a degree the rules kept being revised to increasingly restrict access by certain individuals who apparently had no self control.
