And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
 …. Hebrews 13:16

My Cajun High-rise

My thought for this morning is to share what you have where-ever you are!


Cleaning House

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, and of the devil. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.  ….James 3:14-16 


Clean up your act is exactly what comes to mind when I read this. I’m definitely not pointing fingers at anyone but myself. Self examination is a great practice to keep clean.

Don’t be a Turkey

If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.  ….Galatians 5:15


I grew up knowing this as “back biting”. In my thinking, it is born of an improper or confused  understanding of yourself and your relationship with God. When you know you are loved and there is no one else like you; that the gifts and talents you have been given by God are to be used for the good of all of us, to get closer to God; then you will see your own worth and not worry about others’ talents. You will love them for their gifts. Everything is indeed for God’s glory.
