What kind of deal is it to get everything you want
but lose yourself?
What could you ever trade your soul for?

Giving to the rich…

March 23, 2009

Oppressing the poor to enrich oneself,
    and giving to the rich—both lead only to poverty.

To AIG: regarding the 165mil bonus payout…

March 20, 2009

 

Dear AIG,

In light of your recent bonus payout whereby you have justified your deplorable actions by saying you handed out said bonuses because you made promises that couldn’t be broken.  I would like to know since when did you think it was so important to keep promises? That being said there is something that you should know in your quest to justify your actions. This little bit of wisdom I want to share with you was written by the ancient prophet Jeremiah. The message is still good. Apply it to yourselves:

 

“You cut and hurt a lot of people to get where you are.
And yet you have the gall to say, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.
   God doesn’t mind. He hasn’t punished me, has he?’
Don’t look now, but judgment’s on the way,
   aimed at you who say, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.’ “

There is a time for everything!

March 19, 2009

   There is a time for everything,
       and everything on earth has its special season.
   There is a time to be born
       and a time to die. 
   There is a time to plant
       and a time to pull up plants.
   There is a time to kill
       and a time to heal.
   There is a time to destroy
       and a time to build.
   There is a time to cry
       and a time to laugh. 
   There is a time to be sad
       and a time to dance.
   There is a time to throw away stones
       and a time to gather them.
   There is a time to hug
       and a time not to hug.
   There is a time to look for something
       and a time to stop looking for it. 
   There is a time to keep things
       and a time to throw things away.
   There is a time to tear apart
       and a time to sew together.
   There is a time to be silent
       and a time to speak.
   There is a time to love
       and a time to hate.
   There is a time for war
       and a time for peace

Fear God the creator of all things…

March 13, 2009

But regarding anything beyond this, dear friend, go easy. There’s no end to the publishing of books, and constant study wears you out so you’re no good for anything else. The last and final word is this:
   Fear God.
   Do what he tells you.

And that’s it. Eventually God will bring everything that we do out into the open and judge it according to its hidden intent, whether it’s good or evil.

Strange Women

March 5, 2009

Proverbs 5

Avoid Seduction

 1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
    listen closely to my understanding

    2 so that [you] may maintain discretion
    and your lips safeguard knowledge.

    3 Though the lips of the forbidden woman drip honey
    and her words are  smoother than oil,

    4 in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood 
    and as sharp as a double-edged sword.

    5 Her feet go down to death;
    her steps head straight for Sheol.

    6 She doesn’t consider the path of life;
    she doesn’t know that her ways are unstable.

    7 So now, [my] sons, listen to me,
    and don’t turn away from the words of my mouth.

    8 Keep your way far from her.
    Don’t go near the door of her house.

    9 Otherwise, you will give up your vitality to others
    and your years to someone cruel;

    10 strangers will drain your resources,
    and your earnings will end up in a foreigner’s house.

    11 At the end of your life, you will lament
    when your physical body has been consumed,

    12 and you will say, “How I hated discipline,
    and how my heart despised correction.

    13 I didn’t obey my teachers
    or listen closely  to my mentors.

    14 I was on the verge of complete ruin
    before the entire community.”

   

Enjoy Marriage

 15 Drink water from your own cistern,
    water flowing from your own well.

    16 Should your springs flow in the streets,
    streams of water in the public squares?

    17 They should be for you alone
    and not for you [to share] with strangers.

    18 Let your fountain be blessed,
    and take pleasure in the wife of your youth.

    19 A loving doe, a graceful fawn—
    let her breasts always satisfy you; 
    be lost in her love forever.

    20 Why, my son, would you be infatuated
    with a forbidden woman
    or embrace the breast of a stranger?

    21 For a man’s ways are before the LORD‘s eyes, 
    and He considers all his paths.

    22 A wicked man’s iniquities entrap him; 
    he is entangled in the ropes of his own sin.

    23 He will die because there is no instruction, 
    and be lost because of his great stupidity

       King Solomon

Heavy stone, weighty sand, and a fools wrath.

February 28, 2009

A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.
