Day 92: September 12, 2012-Cute Wins

Cute Wins All the Cuddles.

Honestly, cutest picture ever, kid.

Did I tell you that I love you?

The Readings:

Deuteronomy 21:1-22:30, Luke 9:51-10:12, Psalm 74:1-23, Proverbs 12:11

Old Testament.
Hmm. Dealing with a rebellious son. They get to kill him. Not sure if I'm going to bring that up in a blog about how much I love my son. Will get back to you in 10-15.

New Testament.
An interesting read. Herein, people's rejection of Jesus and followers' refusal to give all the loyalty he requires, juxtaposed with him sending out his faithful disciples. Some are willing to join the mission and follow whole-heartedly; others aren't.

Do we realize the true cost of discipleship?

We can't remain secular Christians and follow Christ. Oh sure, we can say we are Christians. But if Christ were here, he'd have none of it. Something about, "Let the dead bury their own dead," or "Foxes have holes but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."

Meaning, our Crystal Lite version of Christianity that puts ourselves, our whims, and our buffet style, salad bar doctrine over following Christ and what he says completely might just be enough for him to say, "No, thanks. Christ ain't got no bed. You won't be comfortable in the stable. (points) You others go out two by two."

/dust shaken. Minus the ebonics.

Asaph, he ain't foolin'. (Fist/chest pound twice.)

When God seems to have slowed on the miracles and you're wondering where he is, know that Asaph went through the same thing.

This is an encouragement to all of us who've been down-hearted now and then. Nothing wrong with pleading with God.

True dat. (Sideways peace sign, yo.)

Ah, alas, the verse about "he who chases fantasies..." I guess if there's a time when I have to come down to earth it's now. Hard work trumps all. Hard work on fantasies? ...head asplode.

I'm going to start a garden. No one can argue that farming is not hard work.

(In reality, I just wanted to say true dat and alas in the same post. Carry on, Christian soldja.)
