5.31 am, Sunday 30.06.2013:
as some people speed by they ask me “And how are you today?”
why do they even ask?
They never stop to hear my reply.
so I talk to myself and I say:
“and how are you today sir, ma’am?
. . . . . how are you physically and emotionally and spiritually and where are you currently on your life’s journey?”
I’ll probe deeper and ask:
“Are you like most people today, still lost in a vast emotional wilderness and overwhelmed by life’s seemingly endless problems and trials and frustrated by things not going your way?”
what is their reply?
do they speak truth?
and . . . . . with love?
and what do they do?
do they feed the flock?
have they put away lying?
are they now perfect and are they holy?
could we/should we discuss James 1:22 to James 1:27?
are they one more of the pots calling the kettle black?
overheard it said recently:
you made your point, so now just leave it alone.
it seems to me that all of us are stuck somewhere and the truth is that we need each other’s honest help to untangle the mess we are all in together even if at present we are dull of hearing and very hard hearted.
the good news is that the change is possible, but only if and when done “right!” and done “righteously!”
. . . . . got time to stop, yet?
6.33 am, Sunday 30.06.2013.
believe me or not.
I hope to learn to Skype soon and to go Vokle before my coffee addiction does me in with a fatal arrhythmia.
*edit, 6.45 am,
please join me soon to review James 5:16 and 1 Peter 5: 2 and 3 together.
