I’m Not Preaching…

To anyone. But I will share what moves me.

Galatians‬ ‭6:1-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

β€œDear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them. Don’t be misledβ€”you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyoneβ€”especially to those in the family of faith. NOTICE WHAT LARGE LETTERS I USE AS I WRITE THESE CLOSING WORDS IN MY OWN HANDWRITING. Those who are trying to force you to be circumcised want to look good to others. They don’t want to be persecuted for teaching that the cross of Christ alone can save. And even those who advocate circumcision don’t keep the whole law themselves. They only want you to be circumcised so they can boast about it and claim you as their disciples. As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world’s interest in me has also died. It doesn’t matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation. May God’s peace and mercy be upon all who live by this principle; they are the new people of God. From now on, don’t let anyone trouble me with these things. For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus. Dear brothers and sisters, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:1-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I’ve been reading my Bible every night. Praying. Seeking guidance.

And finding it.

End Of The Day (Hard Knocks)

Apparently my code in the simulation has some bugs because I woke up at 2:30 when I could β€œsleep in” until 3:30 this morning.

It 5:30 PM right now and I’m writing this because I don’t know how far I’ll get after supper. I’m wore out. October is a busy month for us.

The sun’s getting low.

So I think I’ll read my devotional and my verses and spend the rest of my night till 9:00 PM vegging out in front of the TV.

9.5 hours on a ladder up and down on a Frito Lay reset will take it out of ya. At least I have great help.

Back at it at 3:00 in the morning.

🎼It’s a hard knocks life…

Hate

I was looking at something a friend responded to today on Twitter. Some guy was asking how to handle a situation with his twelve year old. The child didn’t like their given name and instead wanted to be called Ace. They wanted to change their name. Legally.

Well, be a parent. If the child wants to be called that as a nickname, sure. Bit no on the legal change. They’re twelve. You’re a parent not a best friend. As a matter of fact, if you’re looking to Twitter for parenting advice, maybe you shouldn’t be taking care of children.

It amazes me that someone would do that. So I clicked on the profile and I found the problem.

Screenshot follows.

That’s a lot of hate. I don’t know for sure if this guy has ever met POTUS. But my first question is how can you hate someone so vehemently that you don’t know? How can you hate an entire group of people that you don’t know? What drives a heart like that?

I often say that both sides of our political system force me to the middle. It’s a circus, and I’m not their clown. But I can’t hate. I can think a lot of things. But I cannot bring myself to hate.

Hate consumes the heart and mind. It takes over your life.

In looking to the Bible about hate I found this:

β€œThere are six things the Lord hatesβ€” no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭6:16-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Hate is becoming very popular in Newmerica. It’s the order of the day.

Better to spend your time making the world better around you.

Watch out for family, friends, and those who would do right by you.

Ignore the haters and fools.
