We see that business is not heartless, but rather the ribcage which holds the heart

I read this interesting, and thought-provoking post on American Thinker. I am inclined to agree. What do you think?

Proverbs chapter 18 starts with this:

Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire; he breaks out against all sound judgment. (Proverbs 18:1 ESV)

And ends with this:

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24 ESV)

I don’t have much to say about it, this morning. Just thought it was an interesting observation.

Look at the section heading and keep in mind, what is impossible with men is possible with God.

While I was reading the Bible this morning I was distracted by a morning bird’s call.

It sung: Sol Mi Do.

Not an amazing discovery, really, but it caught my attention this morning for some reason.

So I continue my reading and when the bird sings my ear, of course, drags my mind with it to the sound of the bird. This time it sings its pleasant descending arpeggio but it doesn’t stop there. It adds a a tone a half step up from Do (I’m not a Kodaly person, so I don’t know the solfege name of that note).

Now I’m curious. Will that bird sing next in a new key or repeat the tonal pattern as before?

I confess to being a little disappointed that the bird did not sing in a new key, but sang the original tonal pattern. However, because I listened a little more closely I noticed that Mi was not really in tune. It sounded a little sharp. I listened again and I confirmed that Mi was a bit sharp, but that it vacillated between in tune and sharp. And the bird did not always add the additional tone at the end that seemed to be asking the question: am I in the right key, this morning?

Needless to say, I had to ask God to forgive me for being so distracted during my Bible reading this morning. Here are a couple of quotes from the passages I read:

Isaiah 35:4 ESV

Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.”

1 Peter 1:3-5 ESV

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

“We do these somersaults to justify the monster god we believe in,” he said. “But confronting my own sinfulness, that’s when things started to topple for me. Am I really going to be saved just because I believe something, when all these good people in the world aren’t?”
