Heb 4.15 +

Heb 4.15

“For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities;

but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

“We give the name of virtues to our vices

& go on self-deceived.”

– Beverly Carradine

Who would kill if you could? (Stop, STOP, don’t tell me nor facebook.) Did a name jump into your mind? Did some group of people come quickly to mind? If one (or a group) did, you have EVER reason to doubt your christianity. Christ said, “…Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you & pray for them which despitefully use you & persecute you”(Mat 5.44). – 8/30/21

“Entertainment opens the floodgates &

literally submerges the church in worldliness.”

– Beverly Carradine

As a dad (& “gramp” sch. teacher, pastor) I’m aware children can be fidgety, want activity, love action. Having said that parents, grandparents can tune kids desires to a higher pitch or calm it to a lower level. How? by the actions & desires of adults. Would you believe some hyper stuff is done by the “adults” more for the adult’s sake than for the child? Please parent, grandparents stop pushing activity, stop building excitement. Content adults will tend to have content children. Try it. – 8/30/21      


Make tomorrow Bright –

Today, walk in all your Light.

– eab,  8/81


Salvation – men out of sin!

Sanctification – sin out of men! 

– eab,  8/83           

Sooner or later we meet someone who has a more keen discernment than we do. What should be our attitude? We should neither envy, nor dislike them. God’s allowed them a gift (which may perhaps also be a burden). Before or after meeting the above, we may meet a soul who seems to lack discernment – attitude? Don’t allow yourself to feel superior to them. Do (as you recall their name) ask God to protect them (being so naïve). Do be patient with them as God has been/is with you. – 8/30/21

To forgive oneself? No, that doesn’t work: we have to be forgiven.

But we can only believe this is possible if we ourselves can forgive.

Dag Hammarskjöld

1Ti 6.6

“But godliness with contentment is GREAT gain.”

(emphasis added)

Home school. School your precious son/daughter at home. Now! “But I don’t have a special room I can set up as a ‘school.’” 1000s of youngsters have learned at kitchen tables. “But I don’t have a degree.” Many parents (across centuries) were not as educated as they wished they were. “But I’m afraid I won’t do this right.” OK, that’s not a “bad fear” – don’t let it stop you; let it motivate you. – 8/31/21 

Your position never gives you the right to command. It only imposes on you the duty of so living your life that others can receive your orders without being humiliated.”

Dag Hammarskjöld
