Just pick a scripture passage that means something to you right now, copy it into a post with as much or as little commentary as you choose, and put a link to that post in Mr. Linky below. It’s that easy, and you may never know whose heart God touched because you took the time to share His Word.
There’s an old saying that goes like this:
when you’re up to your neck in alligators.
Our response to this normally is to chuckle … and then go back to fighting alligators.
While I’m sure He understands the concept, Jesus doesn’t count alligators as an excuse. He never lost sight of His purpose while He was here on earth, no matter how many alligators came His way, and we shouldn’t, either.
If we think we can go through the motions of attending church, saying a prayer, and reading a scripture, but because we have alligators to fight, we can ignore all the verses about becoming like Jesus, we are deceiving ourselves.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
