Yesterday morning, before I got out of bed, I was praying that God would teach me lowliness. When I went to let the dog outside there was dog waste all over the room. Don't think you can get much more lowly than cleaning up piles of dog waste. As I reluctantly cleaned up the mess…
It's hard to have conversations that carry a lot of baggage, but they must be had if you're ever going to empty the suitcases. “Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way.

Here we go again. Another worship service that I didn't get to participate in. All they did was squirm and fight me the whole time. I didn't get anything out of the service except frustration of trying to make them behave.
