The Things That Come Out

Yesterday our grandson Gideon was dedicated to the Lord. After church, David and Derek bought pizzas and Laura got Chinese.

David ordered white sauce in hopes that I would not have a reaction. We ate the leftovers for supper.

Mark 7:15, “Nothing that goes into a person from outside can defile him but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.”

Christian Standard Bible

I moved the vaporizer to the bedroom and closed the door. I accidentally left the humidity gauge in the office.

My face started burning. Then my neck broke out. Was it the cheese from the pizza?

Feeling uncomfortable, I searched for the humidity gauge. The humidity was too high as was the temperature. I shut the vaporizer off and opened the door.

Do I watch my heart as closely as I watch the humidity gauge?

How many times have I said something jokingly at another’s expense and regretted it?

Lord, forgive me.

Every Plant

Matthew 13:14, “He replied, ‘Every plant that my heavenly Father didn’t plant will be uprooted.'”

Christian Standard Bible

The reverse is true! Every plant that my Father planted will not be uprooted.

My Father planted me. I will not be uprooted.

No matter what my circumstances are, or how it looks, or the fact that my doctor gave up. I will not be uprooted!

A Proverb

Proverb 10:30, “God’s lover can never be greatly shaken. But the wicked will never inherit the covenant blessings.”

The Passion Translation

I will inherit the covenant blessings!
