I really don't have anyone specifically in mind but need to say something. It just tickles me when ministry folks, and other self-righteous folks (including myself sometimes) who have to 'save face' and must always 'look good'.
Everybody knows that we should trust in the LORD with all our heart and not lean on our own understanding. It's the leaning not on our own understanding that is the killer. To hear some folks, they never struggle... Who could relate to such foolishness? Come on, be honest. Don't you ever find yourself leaning on your own understanding? The very fact of admitting it is getting it in the light, thus nullifying the sting of death that everyone else can smell.
I don't know about you but I laugh at myself sometimes... just like Paul. "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do."
Do you 'work for love' like the picture included shows? If so, you'll never 'get it'. The only way to receive love is to receive it freely, without excuse, return payment, or guilt.
If you never hear me say anything, hear me say clearly that it is not about your conduct. It's not about what you do or don't do. Nothing can make you closer or further away from God. His love for you is unconditional. Acceptance for you is unconditional.
I Am, David
