Read: 2 Corinthians 3:7-18
I have one of those friends who seems to be better than I am at just about everything. He is smarter; he thinks more deeply; and he knows where to find better books to read. He is even a better golfer. Spending time with him challenges me to become a better, more thoughtful person. His standard of excellence spurs me on to greater things.
That highlights a spiritual principle: Its crucial for us to spend time in Gods Word so we can connect with the person of Christ. Reading about the impact of Jesus unconditional love for us compels me to love without demand. His mercy and His free distribution of grace to the most undeserving make me ashamed of my tendency to withhold forgiveness and seek revenge.
I find myself becoming a more thankful person when I realize that, despite my shameful fallenness, the Lord has clothed me in the beauty of His perfect righteousness. His amazing ways and unsurpassed wisdom motivate and transform me. Its hard to be content with my life as it is when in His presence I am drawn to become more like Him.
The apostle Paul calls us to the joy of beholding Christ. As we do so, we are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory (2 Cor. 3:18).
Good evening, Mayor, and thank you for today’s sustenance for body and soul.
They are saying snow tonight and tomorrow, but no accumulation. It’s a good thing!!
Hi Kathy. I saw the Golden Knights at a local air show a few years ago. One of the guys rolled up his chute about ten feet away. He was an absolutely 100% professional squared away soldier. Thanks for hosting this.
Is it Spring yet?
That must have been a really cool experience.
Good evening, henkster. It is almost spring here.
Lots of snow still on the lawns, but most is gone from the streets. Now if we could just get some neighborhood drains open so the lakes could flow away.
G’Day, Janey...((HUGS))...someone has a vivid imagination, but they did a good job.
Is your mouth all healed now?
Thanks for a great road trip, Galz! (((hugs)))
Hi! Yeah, people down here get bored pretty quickly. Mouth healed up just spiffy. Al bruising gone. Had dinner with the doc’s family other night. Fun.
We’re having the last of “Indian Winter” down here; 43 degrees and rain. But 70s are in the forecast.
LOL! Very cute!
Ya, as I wrote Kathy, people down here get board very quickly. LOL
