Hello, everybody way Got you back and all to ourselves, don't we, honey?  

spk_1:   0:14
That we do!  Mainly, because you are under quarantine. So what else do you have to do other than listen to us!? 

spk_1:   0:18
But we hope it's your choice to listen to us!  Welcome back to the Me to We talk podcast, where we promise to tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth...So help me God! And we have another amazing topic for them, baby, don't we? Yes, we do. We did not disappoint. And we want to know. Are you all ready to get cheeky with us? They They stay ready. Round they stare. You

spk_1:   0:45
don't have to get ready because you stayed ready. All right, well, let's tell you a little bit about what cheeky means. Okay, Now, you all know this is a British turn, and

spk_0:   0:55
cheeky says, if you're being

spk_1:   0:56
cheeky, you're being brash or irreverent, you know? Think about that, like, brash and irreverent like you're just rude for no reason. And you had to put a smile on it, right? Um, you know, I hear I'll give you boldly rude, impudent or disrespectful and unusually in playful but yet kind of appealing way.

spk_0:   1:16
That's not me. That sounds like, you know I'm not cheeky. Know you're a

spk_1:   1:20
little cheeky. You are like, you'll say a little jab. Right? Then you put a smile on it at the end, and I'm like, What's

spk_0:   1:26
he talking about? Me. Dan, It is me, You D'oh! He dozes off. I don't hold a cheeky I just call it getting back at you.

spk_1:   1:35
Oh, so that now the truth comes out right. We have to definitely talk about this. When we're talking about being cheeky, we'd like for you guys to kind of, like, turn it over on its head and we maybe look at it through a different lens. Is that okay with you? All know,

spk_0:   1:48
we should cause, you know, we can't always a song. It's from our point of view. We have to actually go back to work. Like you said where it began as far as anyone knew. It began with the British. Yeah, definitely,

spk_1:   1:56
you know, came in from the British and the reason why they were said it's actually a German term. It really started German because it it started off as when you said cheeky. Then if someone would slap you across the face across your cheek, right? You know, And every like Schlapp, right? They slap you across the phase. You smacking back, you would smack them back.

spk_0:   2:16
Oh, my God. You just made me remember it. I can see it. Me and British member, they would take off their clothes all night. Nice and neat, huh? And they'll just smack him with their gloves. That's right. And then they will smack him back with another glow, right? And then what? What would happen after that? You might be a duel. After that, it would be a

spk_1:   2:31
duel. It would be a you know, that was the best way to say, Hey, guess what you have disrespected, my honor.

spk_0:   2:36
Right. Honor. That was the big thing.

spk_1:   2:38
You know, Honor was huge and what you said about someone, and you couldn't just say it to anybody any old kind of way. And so did if you you disrespected someone's honor, disrespected someone's wife, right, saying their name or what they stand for right Then they would slap you across the face. It was a duel. You guys would then line up in a yard somewhere because you had the right to fight for your name is true and take that person's potentially life so you would be, you know, back to back. And it was an about face, and you guys will do you. No, take 10 paces, interning whoever is the quickest

spk_0:   3:11
wins. That's just crazy. That's huge, right?

spk_1:   3:14
That's why they would say insult upon injury was it was a slap in the face, right? Everyone knew what that meant. That's where it all started from the term cheeky. You see how that derives, and you can do the same thing to your spouse. You know, strong you can. You can disrespect them to the point where it feels like it's a slap in the face

spk_0:   3:33
because we always tell your people words hurt and the uncertain words cut deep and the cut is almost just as bad as a slap.

spk_1:   3:39
Can I take it a step further?

spk_0:   3:41
I would expect nothing less

spk_1:   3:42
well, sometimes if you say something to me right, and it's insult upon injury. For me, it's literally like there's a wound there, but then you poured salt in it, all right? And then you kind of rubbed it in. So not only did hurt now, it stings like you reminded me it was there, right? And so that's why you have to watch and make sure you're not too cheeky with your spouse. You know, you have to have to figure those things out, because what happens if you keep on jabbing at someone and you keep pointing out things or saying things in a disrespectful manner? You know, eventually my father is gonna love this, but he used to say this even old dog gets tired of being kicked, right? Right. So if you keep on kicking someone when they're down one day and it's gonna be two responses, it's either fight or flight. I think they're gonna fight back. They're gonna retaliate. They're

spk_0:   4:28
gonna rise up,

spk_1:   4:29
right? And you guys, the Bible has been talking about this for a very long time. Now the world is always pulling narratives from the Bible on the consistent basis. Yes, the world takes from the Bible. So here I'll give you an example in Matthew 5 38 to 39. Check this out. You guys, this is deep. Jesus says you have heard that it was said eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.

spk_0:   5:01
Wow. Okay, you said lowered. Okay. Okay. So it's not just me. No, no, no, no. Can I just

spk_1:   5:07
say this like, seriously, if

spk_0:   5:08
you

spk_1:   5:08
slap me in the face, it is No way I'm gonna hand you my other

spk_0:   5:13
cheek. Great.

spk_1:   5:14
I'm not gonna turn the other side and

spk_0:   5:16
do

spk_1:   5:16
it. So I just want you to get that concept in your mind. If you're back at home on what you think about someone has insulted you so much that it feels like a slap across the face. Right? Like this, You know, it's like this a slap. Right After that, they turn here. Here you go. You can have the other side. Here you go. Get

spk_0:   5:32
the other side of the cheek. That is

spk_1:   5:34
difficult for this person right here. Okay. You, you, you and me, Right? Right to grass and then allowing you to come back for a 2nd 1

spk_0:   5:43
You know, give me You might have got me once, but you're not gonna get me twice. And then the Lord is telling me to give up my other cheek now for the longest. I never understood this. I mean, is it just me? It is not because if you really think about it, we weren't raised like that. Like, if you really think about it, your parents raised you to get the first lake. Don't be the one to get slapped first you're hit first and asks questions later. But the Bible's literally saying, turn the other cheek. You know, it's hard. I just take a deep breath again, baby hard eyes so hard we're so we're so trained to get back Like you hurt me. I'm gonna hurt you worse. Yeah, I'm going to give you another chance to hurt me again.

spk_1:   6:26
Yeah, Yeah. You know, we get so many different things to it now I want to be clear when God was saying, Hey, give them the other cheek after they've already hit the 1st 1 He's not always necessarily talking about in the natural, you know, Right? But it is a great way to explain it because our Lord is such a great storyteller. He knows how to tell you and meet you where you are in order for you to understand. Retain it Because a slap in the face to someone like me. Or were you? Honey, It's just like What do you mean? It catches your attention to the point where you have to understand it. But there's so much more to that scripture. I mean, it just really is. But, you know, when I think about that, a slap of the face or if we use the the King James version of a slap mint smite ing right, its meaning, like personal slights of any kind. Okay, You know, sleight is also a derivative of slap, okay? And so he it involves a literal slap. It does not always involve a literal slap or doesn't mean physical. And it doesn't mean violence. It could mean like someone just disrespected you. It could mean that someone promised to do something that they said they were going to do. It could be a friend that wasn't that great of a friend. You know, it could have been someone that the job, it could have been someone that you're close to all Lord John. I mean, really ready. It could be your family member that you talked to on a regular basis and you're connected by blood and you can't leave a love. But they continually are disrespecting you on a regular basis, and you find it hard to have to deal with it again.

spk_0:   7:52
But if you think about it, why do we find a heart? Because in my mind, I'm thinking about the whole concept. And it all goes back to pride, in my opinion. Oh, yeah, where we just can't let it go. If more people that a lot of things go to be honest, a lot more people would still be here. Oh, okay. Just being just just talking about the world we live in now, just for instance, gang violence. Okay, You did something from my crew. So now we got to get back at you. Oh, that's good. And if I can't get you, I'm gonna get somebody you love because I have to get back in the end, it goes back to the the one statement. Violence begets more violence. If you live by the sword, you die by the sword. A man, it doesn't change. So why not change it? If you lay down your pride and just say OK, I understand you hurt me, But maybe it's because you're hurting. For some reason, what's really won't run with you? Talk with our words. What's wrong with it? Yeah, that's what I should really begin it.

spk_1:   8:44
Yeah, and we're not saying, like, you know, you're supposed to just stand in the way of violence, right? You're not supposed to just be like Okay, Well, Jesus told me to turn the other cheek, so I'm just gonna stay right here, and I'm taking these slabs. Take No, He doesn't want you to be a punching bag. Doesn't want you to be a floor mat that's being walked over. That's not what he's saying. What he's saying is, can you forgo retaliation for the greater good? Can you not let your flesh and blood conform? You okay? And it's really homered, You know, That's why the Bible calls for it. I mean, it says it in Romans 12 to I could hear my father saying this time that he would love this. Dad, this is your

spk_0:   9:21
episode knows you're listening. He knows,

spk_1:   9:24
right? Um, but in in Romans 12 too, you know, I can hear it in my being said to me and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove What is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. So you can say What

spk_0:   9:45
is that? What is that good? You want

spk_1:   9:47
people to ask that question when they see you like you know, you can go around and say I could say, Hey, you know what, honey? I'm a good person. I'm good. I'm good every single day, right?

spk_0:   9:58
Right. But the point is, why do you have to say it? Like if you already know you're good people, See, you're good. You shouldn't have to tell people you're good, right?

spk_1:   10:06
And they'll be the billboard for you, right? Your character should speak for itself, right? And so if you're out there trying to tell people you're this good thing, then it's not going to really stick. People can see that a mile away. We have very smart people in this world. We have a discerning spirit for the most part, right? And so if you see something that is not of God, you're gonna be like, No, that's not a good person. That's not somebody that walks with great character. But unfortunately for those of us myself included that are weak at it. If I were to see somebody with that type of character do it, it would make me take pause when I take a look at it. Can I tell you who I think of Martin Luther Kane?

spk_0:   10:42
Ok, really quick. Before you say that. Do you think that a passive person is just weaker? I

spk_1:   10:47
think the world thinks they're weaker. I think at one point when I was growing up, I thought they were weaker. I thought, Why would they just sit there and let them pick on the that? Why would they not just fight back? But, you know, they must be weak. But I would have to tell you that I think that person is much stronger because they're not leaning into what other people think. Do you know how strong of a person that has to be in order to say, You know what? I'm not gonna go there with you

spk_0:   11:12
while and it goes back to what you just said, Dr King. Oh, yeah.

spk_1:   11:15
I mean, I think of what he did for all of us. Yes, he died in a violent way because that's how the enemy works. He didn't like the peaceful route, and so he found any way possible to take him out because he was changing the minds of millions. Right? Agree him having a dream made me have a tree, right? And so I see things completely different, and his character stands for himself like that. It's literally the principles there, the character in which God would put into us that he wants us to exude. So that's what he's saying when it goes back to Romans 12 to 1 to say that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and acceptable here, me and perfect will of God has to be acceptable

spk_0:   11:57
when you say that I think of Scripture. Luke 6 27 says. What I say to you who are listening, love your enemies do good to those who hate you. Oh, you know how hard that is. Yeah, it's Someone spits in your face and you know they hate you. And you still have to love them as your brother. Uh, and that's what Dr King did.

spk_1:   12:18
He did. He and it even says you know what thing? Let's go back to the Lord. Let's go back A Lord. Oh, come on. He laid down his life for a friend. He laid down his life for us.

spk_0:   12:30
The last thing he said on the cross. What Lord? Forgive them. Forgive them. They know not what they do. Even in his dying breath, he acts for Lord to forgive everybody else.

spk_1:   12:39
That's all right. And look at the character of God. I mean, just look at it. And so you know. Yes. Yes. We can be weak in that area. Yes, it hurts. Yes, it gets down. And you're like, Lord, I just don't know. I just don't know if I can do this. And then that's when you have to realize that you can't call upon your own strength. I gotta call upon the Lord. You know, we say it enough in our titles,

spk_0:   13:02
so help me God. So help me God. God help me. Because I do this. But I

spk_1:   13:07
need some supernatural power to help me overcome this situation. It's no way I could do it by myself. And you want to know why you're not supposed to do it by yourself?

spk_0:   13:18
I'm Listen, I'm sorry I took a deep part

spk_1:   13:21
because it is not your responsibility to avenge yourself,

spk_0:   13:26
you know, seriously, it's the truth. That's what vengeance is mine. I will repay, says the lawyer. You stepping out of bounds, You kind of guy. You're trying to act

spk_1:   13:37
like him. You're trying to take matters into your own hands. And it says Beloved, never avenge yourselves. But leave it to the wrath of God.

spk_0:   13:44
Leave it to him. Yes. Okay. He knows I wouldn't mess with God, and we're sitting here trying to do everything. House. How does it go? Guy don't like ugly. Come on, It doesn't. Maybe you're right. He doesn't

spk_1:   13:57
like ugly. But then do you want to get ugly? Whip it.

spk_0:   14:00
You can't get that. You cannot get down in the dirt. What it must shell say when they go low, we go. Ah, yeah. You gonna say

spk_1:   14:08
it? Yes, she's right. And but, you know, and it's it's hard to D'oh! It's hard when someone is attacking your character. And again, I want to be clear. We're not just trying to say like this is like such a super easy thing to do and everything because you want to know why the flesh is weak? I mean, it's the truth, you know. That's why you have to watch and pray so that you will fall into temptation.

spk_0:   14:30
So you don't want to say, Oh, I was tempted to not well, right. I was going to

spk_1:   14:34
say this thing too. I was tempted to cut you off. Never say this and do this and say all these things about you in return in retaliation. Right? But you have to recognize the spirit is willing. Your heart wants to do it if you lean into that. But you have to always remember that your flesh is so weak. Stay, Parada. People stay prayed up because it is no way it is. No way, No way possible. If you lean into your flesh, you're gonna be leaning into a fight and it and it will literally become a sno ball of fat, A domino effect. Whatever you wanna call and more things than what you started off thinking in the heat of the moment will become so much more. And you have to guard and protect your hearts. You know, you really do. It's no way that you could do it by yourself, so I mean, it

spk_0:   15:24
shouldn't Should not want to. You should always want to lean on him first. Lean not on your own Understanding.

spk_1:   15:30
Yeah. And trust in the Lord with all your heart. Oh, baby. But you're speaking knowledge to me. You're telling me all day like cheeky, you know, it is not the right way to go. It's not.
