I Didn’t Trim in Any Way

“Do I give too much information?”

“Should I have left out some details?”

“Maybe I should omit the questions?”

“Are my thoughts in parenthesis unnecessary?”

When I finished yesterday’s post, I thought it was too long. I questioned different ways to trim it. Then I read a chapter in my latest library book – “Auschwitz Lullaby” by Mario Escobar.

There may come a day when I will have to hide the Bible verses in my posts. Only those reading the “Relevant” Bible Reading Guide will “see” the verses. I decided to publish all of it.

Acts 20:20, “I didn’t skimp or trim in any way.” The Message

God knows my questions. He answered these questions over a thousand years ago. (And they say the Bible isn’t relevant.)

It’s difficult reading books about people who endured the concentration camps during World War II. Those who survived the Holocaust said, “Never again!” And yet, there are “Holocausts” going on in many countries today.

This week I received the “Voice of the Martyrs” magazine. On the front cover was a beautiful lady. Every time I walked by that magazine I thought, “She is my sister.” I pray for my sisters and brothers in other countries.

Paul talked about his suffering. He didn’t dwell on it. He spoke of the healing comfort God always sent.

2 Corinthians 1:5, “We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of His healing comfort – we get a full measure of that, too.” The Message

 

July 3, 2019: 1 Corinthians 16; Acts 20; 2 Corinthians 1.
