pick

In business: quality, fast, cheap. Pick any two.

In life: money or God. Pick one.

"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." Mt 6:24

oops

It is not because of, but rather in spite of me that God's glory is seen.

Sometimes I just forget that.

deceit

I think that you do not understand still.

The Gospel can be an extremely healing experience if you let it be. But until then, you cannot hope to give correction, because that correction, however well-intending you may make it seem, is not coming from a place of sincere concern. No, it is coming from a well-disguised place of bitterness.

Let it go.

First comes love, then comes truth. It cannot be the opposite way around, because it is easy to tell when there is no love in truth. It is called anger, and it's an excuse to be ungracious to other brothers and sisters hidden under the Christian practice of "rebuking."

Accept the grace that is given to you. Then learn to extend that grace to others.

envious

I feel so jealous of people who seem to never feel like they have to work for love. They've grown up their entire lives with a healthy family and abundant love served to them on the platter of their choosing.

They never have to ask for it, and love is just there, for their taking. It never even crosses their mind that they have one of the most rare luxuries known to mankind.

Because they do not realize how rare it is, they don't worry about other people who aren't as fortunate as them. They don't think about doing something for someone else as a display of love, because they assume that everyone else has someone who will do it for them, as has happened in their own lives.

Meanwhile they just take and take and never give back exquisite, exhausting love.

accurate

"When a moral person is confronted with contempt, immorality, disloyalty or dishonesty, he is so repulsed by the offense that he turns away and in despair closes his heart to the offender. But the miracle of the redemptive reality of God is that the worst and the vilest offender can never exhaust the depths of His love." - My Utmost for His Highest

Story of my life.
