My header quotes something from the Bible that I like to remember:
The Lord is good, His mercy is everlasting.
Then I read something recently that segues from that:
“Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?”
Sometimes I like to read something that lifts my gaze above the problems and irritations, sometimes I find some of that inspiration on blogs. One blog that I occasionally visit is Uncle Sam’s Cabin for her Thursday Thankful posts. It helps me think of my own ‘thankful’ list, which is an old piece of advice, count your blessings.
I don’t know quite all of why it makes you a better person, but it does.
Todays sermon at our church was based on the passage in 2 Samuel 6, where David and Michal interact. It was one of those sermons which made me think alot. Some about what was said, and some about related things within the passage.
20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the maids of his servants, as one of the base fellows shamelessly uncovers himself!”
21 So David said to Michal, “It was before the LORD, who chose me instead of your father and all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel. Therefore I will play music before the LORD. 22 And I will be even more undignified than this, and will be humble in my own sight. But as for the maidservants of whom you have spoken, by them I will be held in honor.”
