If you read my post on Arkansite.com yesterday, you would know that the golden rule is something we all need to remind ourselves of every once in a while. If you haven’t read it, jump on over and take a gander… I’ll wait until you get back…
…#1, funny huh?
Well, I was reading in my Bible last night and I ran across this little gem of a verse…
They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good. Titus 1:16
Immediately after I read this I thought about the whole “You’re #1” concept. I really had to hang my head in shame. Not that I told anyone that they are indeed #1, but I thought about how many times I have sported my cross decor (earrings, shirts, purse, shoes) and then was rude to someone, or whined about having to do something, or worse.
I didn’t like that thought. Especially when the idea of God thinking I was detestable and disobedient. Then I thought about the times that I gossip.. those are the times that I don’t do anything good. I tend to hide away. I even “forget” to do my Bible study or meditation. If I really analyze my behaviors, I can see that I am in a deep pit of sin. God’s right, nothing good comes from me during those times.
But, here’s the beauty of it all.. I can ask for forgiveness. Just by asking, I put myself back on the right track. The tricky part is not to fall of the wagon. Is it just me or does anyone else have the problem of keeping tags on sinning? Sometimes, I wonder why God made me so human.
Well, I am in the middle of cleaning out a closet! Guess I better get back to work! Enjoy this very warm sticky Tuesday..
