1. Better to build one beautiful thing than to critique a thousand abominations.
2. The best way to free someone from darkness is not to speak against the dark, but to draw them towards the light.
3. We spend far too much energy trying to remove the obstacles in front of us and not enough energy allowing God to teach us to jump over them.
4. Humans are created by God to be fruitful. Whether promulgating joy or bitterness, we will reap a harvest.
5. Play catch with God today. Catch something He is saying and toss it to the rest of us.
6. A proud church can no more advance the purposes of God than a stubborn mule.
7. Before you fix the world, please admit to your own brokenness. Otherwise, you’re just going to perpetuate your hurt on the rest of us.
8. “I’m sorry, I was wrong, please forgive me.” Words that are seldom heard but essential for renewal.
9. The problem with avoiding unhealthy people is you cannot escape yourself.
10. If you’re planning on charging up that hill, make sure you at least bring snacks.
Tweet away. Good stuff. 🙂
I am taking my pastor of First Christian Church to New York in October. I read your review of Kathie Lee Gifford’s musical “Scandalous.” Will I be safe to bring my pastor without having to apologize for the show’s bad language or making fun of God or sex scenes? I have met the show’s composer and have admired Kathie Lee. I would like to see the play, but I do not want to scandalize my pastor, a family man in his 50s. Thank you for your reply.
David, it depends on your pastor and how he deals with culture. I’d just honestly tell him your concerns. The musical has been reworked since I saw it, so I can’t give any guarantees. I do know it takes faith as a sincere thing, including prayer and even miracles. However, there is plenty Scandalous as well.
Thank you for your reply. I will be reading your blog.
Sudden thought: Solomon would have loved Twitter!
Marcie, you cracked to code…Don’t look at my twitter feed, because these proverbs look very similar to a few of my tweets.
