God’s Gift To You

Over the weekend I had the pleasure and privilege of attending the YMCA National Assembly at Warwick University. It was an awesome time. Part of the weekend included a prayer session which had a number of images displayed to focus on issues for prayer. So inspiring were they that I thought it would be good to post some of them on here from time to time. Hope you enjoy them.

Daily Thoughts – Playing The Fool

He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe. (Proverbs 28:26)

I can make it on my own. I don’t need anyone’s help. Apparently there’s something brave about going around as though you can take everything on your own shoulders. What is missed out though is the benefit of learning from others, getting to know what is going on before making mistakes. After all, however much one knows is far less than the knowledge and wisdom available from many.

Daily Thoughts – Tough Love

Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. (Proverbs 27:6)

This proverb sounds odd, why would a friend wound you? There are times though when we need some tough love, our egos need deflating or we need to swallow the bitter pill of truth about something and it hurts for a time. Sometimes the most loving thing that can be done for us is to deprive us of perceived needs. The opposite of this is the tendency to just let people know they’re alright and rather than being a good friend that’s perhaps the worst thing that could happen – more the action of an enemy.

Daily Thoughts – What Goes Around …

Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling. (Proverbs 26:27)

The scene is set with Wile E. Coyote plotting the perfect way to crush the Roadrunner. From afar off he sees his blue-feathered nemesis zooming into view. The clever coyote sets the perfect plan in action only to see the boulder completely miss the speedster and as he looks on he is suddenly aware of quickly expanding shadow above him suggesting an unfortunate end to the perfect plan. He sticks out a sign that says ‘help’ before being squashed.

That’s for laughs. Do not find yourself splatted by efforts to undermine and degrade others.
