No Such Thing as Self-Rescue

May 25, 2019: Psalms 49-50; Habakkuk 1-2.

I joined a writer’s group yesterday. When I opened my email, I had 5 messages from them. The first one was a quiz to see where you were in the writing process.

I took the quiz.

The second email told me I needed to become a member by midnight – last night. I decided to read the rest on Tuesday.

Psalms 49:7-9, “There’s no such thing as self-rescue, pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. (8) The cost of rescue is beyond our means, and even then, it doesn’t guarantee (9) life forever, or insurance against the Black Hole.” The Message

I published my post, practiced the piano, and cleaned up for a funeral. I don’t mind going to funerals. They put this writing business into perspective.

Psalms 49:16-19, “So don’t be impressed with those who get rich and pile up fame and fortune. (17) They can’t take it with them; fame and fortune all get left behind. (18) Just when they think they’ve arrived and folks praise them because they’ve made good, (19) they enter the family burial plot where they’ll never see sunshine again.” The Message
