Job 14.2 +

Job 14.2

“He [ man ] cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down:

he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.”

 

Sleeves on men/women are getting shorter. “Why talk about it, Bryan?” Four reasons 1.) Shorter & shortest (some can hardly be called a sleeve) shows a move toward the world. 2.) A man who wears a tight mid-bicep sleeve may be proud of his muscles. 3.) A woman in a short sleeve may want people, excuse blunt-ness, to see how busty she is (side view of a bare arm & a dark dress accents such). 4.) Short sleeves are not dressy – never have a Classy Look. I believe strongly in being separate from the world & in not fostering pride but in addition I’ve seldom seen a person in short sleeves who looks classy, looks their best. – 7/23/20

 

“Hypocrites prove that godliness is profitable.

Men always counterfeit that which is valuable.”

– George B Kulp

How much time do you spend eating breakfast? How much time eating dinner? Supper? “Are you being noisy?” (Bear with me – I’m headed somewhere.) You spend a lot of time supporting your body – which BTW you will lay down someday. How much time do you spend feeding your soul? An honest answer for some would be “As little as I possibly can & still hope to make heaven.” As you age you may eat fewer meals for the flesh but please, Friend, do not partake less of His fine food – spend more time with Jesus. -7/23/20

 

“Powerless lives, fruitless lives are a certain result of life in which the grace of God is frustated,

the commandments of God violated, & light rejected.”

– George B Kulp

 

mile vs. mile

Your “mile” versus my “mile,”

The difference could make one smile.

There needed to be a standard “in feet.”

Miles and men need a standard to meet.

At least two Scriptures suggest that we have a guardian angel(s) (Mat 18.10 & Act 12.15). If we do, I suspect one of them is “busy” recording our words (aloud & “under our breath”) our actions etc. No king or queen has ever had their life more documented than the common man has his recorded by God. Be careful what you so you can have a good account, without rebuke, in that final day. – 7/23/20

 

“…It is as reasonable to suppose it is the desire of all Christians to arrive at Christian Perfection

as to suppose that all sick men desire to be restored to perfect health.”

– Wm Law

 

Mat 18.10

“Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.”

 

Dad, teach your son to work, to love to work & teach him *how* work. Show him how to hold the tool & how to hold the “article” to which the tool is applied. Teach your son what to expect in his “finished” product. Don’t demand too much in his first try (sometimes dad’s aren’t known for patience L). But gradually raise the level of expectation so his product next year is much better than the first one. Never make fun of his attempts. Never say, “What are you, a girl?” Some day make him happy to say, “My dad, taught me how to do this.” – 7/23/20

 

“When I read aloud two senses catch the idea:

first I see what I read; second I hear & therefore I can remember it better.”

– A Lincoln
