Infirmities

pix190

Let’s say you are right handed, and you write your name with your left hand. Your name isn’t going to look so good, right?

Let’s say you practice it and then your name starts looking better. Then you begin writing a sentence with your left hand. That sentence is going to take some time to write, and it’s not going to look all that good.

Let’s say you keep practicing and then the sentence starts looking better. Then you begin practicing writing a paragraph. That paragraph is going to be hard to write.

What’s the point to all of this? Doing good and having good behavior is like writing with the left hand. The more you practice, the better you get, but the more you realize you have a long way to go and that you are not as good as you think you are.

I believe that’s why the Apostle Paul said, “I take pleasure in infirmities (weaknesses). For when I am weak, then I’m strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

God’s Treasure

Sometimes people have children out of wedlock. The results are diverse (unwelcomed responsibilities and drama, to name a couple).

In such cases, having children out of wedlock…”unwanted accidents”…may be like rolling snake eyes to parents, but like rolling eleven to God. It may not be His perfect will, but it’s still the same winnings as rolling seven.

Time Flies

Have you ever noticed that time flies when you’re being unproductive? Even when you’re getting much needed rest, time flies. And there is a thin line between getting rest and being unproductive.

We blow our lives by doing things that are not impactful. If you stood before Christ today, could you say you did as much for Him as you were able to, or would you be embarrassed by the amount of time you squandered?

First there was the Old Testament, then the New Testament. I like this concept because God improved upon what He previously did. Let me add – only God can outdo God.

If you’re looking for something better that’s outside the will of God, there’s no way it can outdo what God has established as His own will. Only God can outdo God.

Good Deeds

I like infomercials that advertise so-called high powered exercise equipment. And the equipment may not be bad equipment, but you and I know getting in shape is not about having the right equipment. It’s about having the right work ethic.

It is useless to have exercise equipment and not use it. It is useless to have a bookshelf filled with books and not constantly dissect them. In the same way, faith without works is dead. Exercise your faith…if it’s really faith.
