Why is it that we are so prone to dealing with our external sins without dealing with the heart? As I have had the privilege of working through the Behold Your God Bible study with a friend of mine, I am faced with this reality once again.
In the midst of all the mayhem, Colossians 3 keeps coming to mind reminding me to set my mind on things above. I’ve been thinking how important it is to remember that as believers in Christ, we really are strangers here. And if this world is feeling less and less like home, that’s because it’s not our home, which I’m really glad about because currently it is full of unpleasantries.
My recent connection with some old childhood friends has been amazing. It has caused me to dig up a bit of my past…looking through old photos, journals, and letters. And it’s been a bit of an enlightening adventure. 😉
The older I get, the more I realize that life is full of unknowns. There’s a lot that goes on around me every day that seems scary and threatening in some way.
As most of you know, I am a lover of words. And since words are only as good as their meanings, I am always delighted to study the meanings behind even everyday words that seem so obvious.
We all know what it means to be kind, don’t we? Many of us akin it to being nice and pleasant. But really, kindness is so much more.
The love of God…everyone talks about it, but few really live in it. A wise counselor once told me that you speak out of what you believe in your head but you live out of what you believe in your heart.
