Day 149

Today’s Readings – 1 Kings Chapters 1-2 and Psalms 37, 71, and 94

Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?
Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?
Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?
The LORD knows all human plans; He knows that they are futile. 

Psalm 94:8-11

David and Solomon both must have thought, “How long will it take for these people to learn?”

Even family doesn’t get it. As David is dying and plans are made for Solomon to take the throne, treachery is at foot again.

sdgMakes you wonder as your read the story of David’s life did Disney borrow the story of The Lion King from the pages of the Old Testament?

You fools, when will you become wise? 

How many times has God said that about us?

We see the folly of others actions so easily and miss the folly of our won actions.

If your life was a movie, how many times would the audience be saying to themselves, “what an idiot!”

Wise up.

God has plans for you and they far surpass anything you could imagine.

Tomorrow’s Readings – Psalm 119





I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
