Sermon Notes: Parts Unknown ~ Be Careful With Me

Title... Parts Unknown ~ Be Careful With Me (Anthony Bourdain, Cardi B & Psalm 55 collide)
Text... Psalm 55 

Three Primary Assertions:
1) Often life is hard and lonely... verses 1-3
2) Disappearing is an unhealthy thought... verses 4-8
3) There's deliverance for those in despair... verses 16-19, 22-23

Anthony Bourdain:
We all have Parts Unknown that even those closest to us, have no clue exist. Deep, dark and damaging parts, that cause us to be dysfunctional when left to ourselves. It's not always about being unhappy or being depressed; some people are just impulsive, tired and others feel like their out of options.

Cardi B:
Success is not a shield against being hurt and broken. Life is just as hard for the rich as it is for the poor. So Cardi makes lot of sense when she says:
I gave you everything, what's mine is yours
I want you to live your life of course
But I hope you get what you dyin' for
Be careful with me, do you know what you doin'?
Whose feelings that you hurtin' and bruisin'?
You gon' gain the whole world
But is it worth the girl that you're losin'?
Be careful with me
Yeah, it's not a threat, it's a warnin'
Be careful with me
Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it
Be careful with me.

Psalm 55: Be honest with God, so God can help you. Don't bottle up your anger/aggression (verses 9-14), because some things need to be talked out. There's nothing wrong with having a pastor and a therapist! You need to pray and take your pills! Health begins with honesty, with yourself, with God and with other people.
