THE WAY! YOU DO WHAT YOU DO!

WHAT IF EVERYONE DID WHAT WAS RIGHT IN THEIR OWN EYES?         WOULD THERE BE CHAOS?

Have you thought about that and wondered what would happen? I’m driving down a freeway and I am going the speed that is posted, and all of a sudden, to my left someone is going much faster than I am going, and passes me by. 

 Well, it won’t hurt anything, will it?  

 Now if a highway patrol stops him, and tickets him for speeding, he has absolutely no excuse. I have one I want to use in that situation. I am old, and with only a short time to go, I am trying to get as much done in a short period of time. That should suffice!

 You see it one way and I see it another way. We each can come up with good excuses why we do what we do, and it is usually based on what we think, and how the law reads to us. 11102655_1433383976959909_7601228856187754569_n

I can excuse myself in speeding, because I have little time left. Someone else, is late for work. Another person may be trying to get a friend to the hospital or you are running late for your wedding.

Maybe you need to get to the funeral home, before they close the casket on you.

We all have good sounding reasons, but in fact, we would have Chaos if we lived in a society like that.

Judges 21:25″…There was no king in the land, so everyone did what was right in their own eyes.”

Somewhere in our society, if we want to continue to live with each other and among our fellow Americans, there are certain things we are going to have to talk about, compromise on (somewhat), and agree to abide by for the sake of everyone.

THE WAY! THE POTTERY!

HE IS THE POTTER…I AM THE CLAY! Isa. 64:8 says, “Yet, O Lord, you are our Father, We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”
Potter making the pot.
Potter making the pot in traditional style. High angle view. Close up.
The potter makes what He wants to make, and I come to realize, in my life what I am suppose to be. If I am a pitcher, that is quite different from being a bowl, or a cup. Is it possible for a potter to make an unusable piece of pottery?
I don’t mean, a piece to look at, but a piece that was to be something very special and it turns out, it cannot function for that purpose or for any purpose? I am made as a cup for drinking out of, but I have a hole in the side at the bottom of the cup, so that all the liquid I put into it, drains out of it.
Maybe the cup could be used as storage for pencils.
We are the Work of God’s hands, and when we find out what our purpose is, we will be able to function properly. “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Eph. 2:10
We truly have purpose, each and everyone of us.

THE WAY! ISCARIOT!

Iscariot-A Novel of Judas

Tosca Lee, a New York Times Best Seller, writes this fictional work about a man who was known only as a traitor, liar, thief, but he had a deadly kiss. 10264432_646461625423844_2230004202988897047_n

She embellishes the life of Judas from the age of 6 and gives us reason to understand why he was who he was, and why he did what he did.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a great read, at this time of the year.

The challenges that Judas faced in his society, and the challenges that we face in our society, are very similar, and Tosca Lee, asks the question, “Would you do what Judas did?”  Considering our government, our society & culture, our families all pitted against our spiritual beliefs.avatar_66dbcdc16f47_64

Be prepared to change your mind about Judas. Challenge yourself in your life, and your society.
