Echoes From the Campfire

Every idea is a seed and, like a seed, it germinates.  Only you have to feed it to make it grow properly.”
              –Louis L’Amour  (Hanging Woman Creek)

    “Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable–if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise–dwell on these things.”
              –Philippians 4:8 (HCSB)
Easy question to answer:  What kind of ideas/thoughts are in your mind?  We need to feed our minds the Word of God and not the world.  The election is coming up.  How will you vote?  Do you have enough of God’s Word in you to vote according to it?  One more question:  How can a believer vote for someone who is in favor of abortion?  Hmmm, I wonder if they will somehow have a few drops of blood from the unborn on their hands.
“Commit your way to the Lord: trust in him, and he will act.”
—that fool Noah did, and built a stupid boat on dry land for years and years, and man lived.
—that fool Job did, and the world kicked him, and his friends did too, and so did his old religion, and he showed us a new face of God.
—that fool John the Baptist did, and he ate crunchy insects and dressed like a jerk, and baptized Jesus.
—that fool woman did; squeezing and elbowing through the crowd, just so she could grab at Jesus with her hand, sick, sick from years of a woman’s sickness, and she was healed.
But now we have aptitude tests, and counselors, and advisors, and rest camps, and pyschiatrist, and lots of brains, an WE act.
“Commit your way to the Lord, trust in him, and he will act.”
Lord have mercy on us.
Lord have mercy on us.

Have a good Friday and good weekend.  Don’t let the devil get the upper hand.
