ODM DAILY 30 July 2022 – THE OSCAR SLAP! HE RESIGNED – 1
TOPIC: THE OSCAR SLAP! HE RESIGNED – 1
It was George Bernard Shaw who penned: “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” US actor, Will Smith, has resigned from the Oscars Academy after slapping comedian Chris Rock on stage during the 2022 OSCAR AWARD CEREMONY in which he won the best actor of the year!
So his day of glory became his day of shame! He said: “I am resigning from membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I am heartbroken and would accept any further consequences the Board deems appropriate. My actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable.”
Recollect that Smith slapped the comedian after he made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, a result of the hair-loss condition alopecia. Wow!
But the Holy Ghost wants you to know that without self-discipline, shame and regret will be your last bus-stop! Things you cannot control will create your pathway to stagnation, demotion and REGRETS! Can you control your temper, your appetite for food, sex, fashion, unwise spending of money, gossip, praying in the day or night, study of the Word, etc?
Hear Jackson Brown, Jr.: “Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.” Solomon could not control his sexual urge/love of women! Moses could not control his temper! Judas and Gehazi could not control their love of money! Lucifer could not control his lust for POWER (pride). Close with this: You Will Either Suffer The Pain Of Discipline Or The Pain Of Regrets (Had-I-Known) – To be continued tomorrow…
