Thought for today...

A thick skin and a short memory are the best weapons against unjust criticism.


You hide them in the safety of your presence from the plots of others;
 in a safe shelter you hide them from the insults of their enemies.

Psalm 31:20

Tears by: Frederick Buechner

Frederick Buechner

YOU NEVER KNOW what may cause them. The sight of the Atlantic Ocean can do it, or a piece of music, or a face you've never seen before. A pair of somebody's old shoes can do it. Almost any movie made before the great sadness that came over the world after the Second World War, a horse cantering across a meadow, the high school basketball team running out onto the gym floor at the start of a game. You can never be sure. But of this you can be sure. Whenever you find tears in your eyes, especially unexpected tears, it is well to pay the closest attention.

They are not only telling you something about the secret of who you are, but more often than not God is speaking to you through them of the mystery of where you have come from and is summoning you to where, if your soul is to be saved, you should go to next.

Thought for today...

God allows you to go through struggles so you can experience His comfort, 
His faithfulness, and His presence.


Dear brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes your way, 
let it be an opportunity for joy.  
For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.

James 1:2-3

Thought for today....

The more important the task, the more you need to examine your motives.


Never once did we try to win you with flattery, as you very well know.

1 Thessalonians 2:5
