Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 119): Part 15

ס Samekh

113 I hate double-minded people,screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-6-14-04-am
    but I love your law.
114 You are my refuge and my shield;
    I have put my hope in your word.
115 Away from me, you evildoers,
    that I may keep the commands of my God!
116 Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live;
    do not let my hopes be dashed.
117 Uphold me, and I will be delivered;
    I will always have regard for your decrees.
118 You reject all who stray from your decrees,
    for their delusions come to nothing.
119 All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;
    therefore I love your statutes.
120 My flesh trembles in fear of you;
    I stand in awe of your laws.

Time for a Great Cartoon: Victimhood

Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 8.56.03 PM

Classic Watterson!  What a great line — “Your denial of my victimhood is lowering my self-esteem!”  You’ve got to hand it to Calvin’s teacher — she says the right things!  In another cartoon, Calvin says something like, “I hate it when she drinks Maalox right from the bottle!”

Learning to take responsibility for my actions, choices, decisions, priorities — is a pretty good definition of MATURITY, don’t you think?

Your thoughts?

Time for a Great Cartoon (responsibility)

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 8.50.17 AMCalvin may be onto something quite profound here.  In our blame-anyone-but-yourself culture, we don’t naturally want to admit our mistakes, acknowledge our bad choices, or confess our waywardness.  The evangelist Billy Sunday said, “An excuse is a skin of a reason stuffed with a lie.”Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 9.41.31 PM

We are responsible for our actions — and our inactions.  And that’s where God’s grace and mercy come in, don’t they?
