1Co 13.11

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child:

but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

 

It seems some youth are refusing to grow up. They have no interest in working hard. They aren’t getting serious with a girlfriend. They’re “busy” with games, watching hollywood’s latest garbage, surfing or other play. I don’t want to be too hard on them. Nor, do I wish to be too hard on their parents, but allow a septuagenarian to say (with malice toward none, literally) “Disciplined parents tend to produced disciplined children.” Obviously rules are broken or there would be no “black sheep.” General rules do have exceptions but exceptions reinforce general rules.

“Faith will annihilate fret or

If you have not chosen from Holy Scriptures a “life verse” you might consider this approach. Search Book by Book for the “chapter & verse” which fits you. The chapter could be your birth month: June for example would be chapter 6, & the verse could be your birth date. Born June 19th your life verse could be 6.19 in a Book where the truth of its 6.19 speaks to you & your life. Blessings

2Ti 3.2

“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,

blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,”

 

If you have 1 & only 1 “litmus test” for politicians – where they stand on abortion – you’re too narrow. There are several issues which should also catch your attention: Is he a fiscal conservative? Where is he on reducing the-ever-expanding military “budget”? Is he non-catholic? Does he attend church regularly? Does he have a “day job” or is he a “professional politician”? Is he for limited terms (senate & house)? Is he in his first marriage? (or his 1st wife died). Where is he on the constitution? Is he taking $ from lobbyists?

“We cannot expect hollywood to do in the soul

 what only the Spirit can accomplish.”

*End of the road* 1.) Some people like to go to the end of a road. 2.) Some like to live at the end of the road. The stupendous question is – Is there Life /for us/ at the end of the road – – – the road upon which our feet now fall? Numbers 1. or 2. may or may not appeal to you but we all – without exception – are going to come to the end of our earthly road. What, friend, lies beyond that? Eternal Life with Christ or…
