Psa 37.25 +

Psa 37.25

“I have been young & now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,

nor his seed begging bread.”

 

 “Hypocrites prove that godliness is profitable.

Men always counterfeit that which is valuable.”
– George B Kulp /Voice fr. Eternity/

 

If your work or ministry puts you in contact with older people (strangers to you), allow a suggestion. The first time you need to use their name ask, “What would you like me to call you: ‘Mr. Jones’ ‘Mr. George’ (southern respectful title), ‘George’ or something else?” The source of automatically calling older people by their first name is skewed – they may well prefer a title they’ve been called for decades, not this modern fad. And, let them tell you rather than you asking, “Is it OK if I call you George?” They may not like it, but hesitate to give you their preference & simply nod guessing that’s what you want. A warmer relationship is possible when they feel you respect them.

“Possession does not make you the owner of stolen goods.”

– George B Kulp /Voice fr. Eternity/

 

LIVE THIS HOUR

I cannot live tomorrow,

Nor should I even try.

I cannot live yesterday,

It’s gone for aye, bye-bye.

I cannot live the morning,

If it’s already past the noon.

I cannot live the evening,

(unless it comes “real soon.“)

I must live this hour!

Enjoying it, in the Lord,

Must live it in His power,

Through His presence, and His Word.

– eab, Jan. 2006

 

Psa 32.11

“Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous:

& shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.”

 

“Joy” & “fun” each have 3 letters. That is about where comparisons end. Joy (fruit of the Holy Spirit) can be quite or exuberant but is always uplifting. You’re definitely better inside & out after a joyful experience. Fun is a cheap substitute but many times is crude, cruel (think unpractical “practical” jokes) & often leaves one disappointed & emotional down.

“Men often take their imagination for their heart &

they believe they are converted as soon as they think of being converted.”

 – Blaise Pascal /Pensees/

 

Worship of the Triune God:

Before the world was – You were.

Everywhere the world is – You are.

When the world’s nothing but memory (if that) –

You will Be, on & on, Eternally! – eab, 1/11/19

 

“Grace is indeed needed to turn a man into a saint; &

he who doubts it does not know what a saint or a man is.”

– Blaise Pascal /Pensees/
