Note to Self #8


From Life Application Notes for Proverbs 28:2:
When enough people live for themselves with little concern for how their actions affect others, the resulting moral rot contaminates the entire nation. Are you part of the problem...or the solution?
From a friend's Facebook status:
you may even feel like so much is going on..that you feel buried...underneath the load..totally lost ..not even the Lord knows where you are...just remind yourself...buried things die...if you still breathing then you have mistaken the buried for a "planting"..God has planted you where you are....just hang in there for your next step...sometimes all it takes is to go ahead and do that..take one more step...
From Turning Points by David Jeremiah:
If there are some you find it difficult to submit to, make it a practice to pray diligently for them.  It's hard to resist someone you're praying for. Submission to authorities shows we understand the nature of authority.

  2. I’ve been listening to “The Millennials” on audio-book, and the author says that the generation of kids born between 1980-2000 really want to change the world. If only a small percent of them actually do something about that, what a difference it could make. So your first quote reminded me of that. I want to be part of the solution too, not the problem.

    "Buried things die." For some reason, that is striking me as really profound in this context because I often DO feel totally covered up. Thanks for the thoughts!

  3. That first one really packs a punch.

    The second one reminds me of John 12:24: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit."

    The third one is good advice, too. Better to pray for them than stew or complain, though those actions seem so much easier at first.
