Parents, be consistent; your children need an anchoring point in this world. Be consistently right (with the wonderful help of the Holy Spirit this is possible) on the major issues. If on some minor issue you make a mistake, make an apology. Be big enough to say “I was wrong” & mean it.

TRAVELER

Don’t measure a man by the length of his house,

Or its width, or height, or price.

Don’t gauge him by the flivver he drives,

No matter how cruddy old or how nice.

 

Don’t judge a man by the suit that he dons,

Or rich or poor food on his plate,

Nor by the “luck” he seems to have

Or that he has to endure bad “fate.”

 

In fact, it’s best to not judge him at all;

Like him for the good that you see.

Befriend him every time that you can,

Hold him equal, with you, and me.

 

If/when you see him a few years hence

His possessions may be more or less.

It’s the Man that counts. Now, & then.

Respect him, dear traveler – & God bless.

Solemn sermons were preached in yesteryear warning of the TV pollution. They were right though sadly too many younger people resented them. Truth be known, the negative impact of TV is not limited to bad words & evil actions. The very content, the underlying ideas are purposely planned to change how society thinks – & together with state schools/colleges they changed it. We should’ve heeded those old sermons.

“Opinions above holiness, are just as dangerous and inevitably false, as opinions below it.”

– Jesse T Peck, quoted by Howard Sweeten, /The More Excellent Way/

 

How is your relationship with Jesus? “I’m a church member.” Pardon me, but that wasn’t what I ask. Let me use different words – How do you & Jesus get along? Many a man/woman has a “relationship,” in the sense of living under the same roof, speaking when spoken to, having the same last name, but love is sadly lacking. When is the last time (with no one around) you simply told Jesus, “I love you”?

Joh 17.17

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”

[Great v. to memorize & easy ref.]

 

There’s a huge difference between wanting to be like God & wanting to take His place. All Christians have a desire to follow Christ, to pattern our simple lives after His glorious Man/God example. But to want to take His place, to desire to be God yourself, is utterly, horribly evil.

Now and then I see where prankster,

 Has turned a corner post.

And “Main” becomes “Franklin,”  

And “Franklin,” “Main” – almost.

 

Locals know that “Main” is “Main,”

Not turning where miss-signed,

And the turned-street labels,

Make them to humor inclined.

 

But to the traveler on his journey

From his home to city far,

Doesn’t know the sign is wrong

And his day can fully mar,

 

By the miss-labeled street,

He may turn and travel long,

Only to sadly learn

His miles and hours were wrong.

 

If the devil can spin the signs,

Call that “Narrow” which is “Broad,”

And call the “Broadway,” “Narrow,”

Leading folks away from God,

 

Then satan may see them die,

Die despairing of Calvary’s cost,

Because they turned the wrong corner,

And were forever lost.

 

Preacher, do not be a prankster,

Turning the sign on the corner post,

“Winning” people by your humor,

Not preaching with the Holy Ghost.

 

And Traveler, oft check the map,

It the narrow and broad has told. 

Remember, the adage is still true,

“All that glitters is not gold.”   –eab, 2/9/06
