Wm Law quote

“The merchant is no longer to hoard up treasures on earth.

The soldier is not longer to fight for glory

the great scholar is no longer to pride himself in the depths of science; but

they must all with one spirit ‘count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus.’”

– William Law, from his book A Serious Call to a devout and holy life (1728)

Political – religious leaders seek to have you identifying with, live for, and if need be die for THEIR cause, moral or otherwise. Christ (and His word) is the only cause worthy of your time, your talents, and the only Cause which guarantees you heaven. ONLY. Sadly millions of men have been motivated by money, hope for fame, promise of land, even promise of eternal life, and awaken to reality after they dropped into hell.

God of all

Our Lord is God of all below the sod

Every worm, every bug, beneath earth’s grand “rug.”

Every rodent in his burrowed or borrowed den

Every fleck of gold, still hidden, still unsold

Every diamond in the rough, with angles enough

Every pricy stone, or coal in its black zone

Every pool or stream of oil, miles or meters below soil

Every vein of water for living, recycled, recently giving

Every know (or unknown) cave, dry or sloshed by wave

Every Carlsbad-like cavern, unlit by tiny lantern

Every volcano ready to spout smoke and cinder out

Every hot spot waiting to blow. He’s God of all below!

Are there prodigal sons/daughters

caught today in the world’s pig pens who have considered/are considering coming home? But, they know Dad/Mom have moved on issue “A” or “B.” What was avoided when they were growing up is now accepted.

The Dad who didn’t have time to play with them is now mesmerized by professional sports.

The Mom who once looked like a 20th century saint now resembles a 21st century Jezebel.
