"Blessed Are the Meek" by Lloyd Jones

When we realize truly what we have to be, and what we have to do, we become inevitably 'poor in spirit'. That in turn leads to that second state in which, realizing our own sinfulness and our own true nature, realizing that we are so helpless because of the indwelling of sin within us, and seeing the sin even in our best actions, thoughts, and desires, we mourn and we cry out with the great apostle, "O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" But here I say is something which is still more searching -- 'Blessed are the meek'.

Now why is this? Because here we are reaching a point at which we begin to be concerned about other people. Let me put it like this. I can see my own utter nothingness and helplessness face-to-face with the demands of the gospel and the law of God. I am aware, when I am honest with myself, of the sin and evil that are within me and that drag me down. And I am ready to face both these things. But how much more difficult it is to allow other people to say things like this about me! I instinctively resent it. We all...prefer to condemn ourselves than to allow somebody else to condemn us. I say to myself that I am a sinner, but instinctively I do not like anybody else to say I am a sinner.
D Martyn Lloyd-Jones

The afrika mangosu may seem like another stimulated product to produce hype and big bucks for firms. However, with backed support from Mr. Oz, who has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show hundreds of times, the product seems more valid. Dr. Mehmet Oz now has his own medical show, and has featured the african mango on his show not only as a weight loss aid, but as a super potent multivitamin that has benefits for both men and women. While Dr. Mehmet Oz does not endorse the product, his claims that afrika mangosu plus is beneficial for lowering cholesterol, improving the waistline and an effective weight loss aid makes trying afrika mangosu zayiflama hapi worth the risk.
