Earl Gray Pencil Like a Child
Some things in the Bible make more sense the older one gets, especially when it comes to milestones in life. For instance, having a child of my own has shed light on what it really means to receive the kingdom of God "like a child".
Children are so wonderfully trusting, forgiving and unwaveringly bold. That is, until their trust is horribly shattered and abused, but I digress. Ask a child about the world around her, and she will boldly and proudly answer with all the truth she knows. "But how do you know?" you ask her. "How do you know the sun will rise in the morning when you have no evidence to prove it?"
"Because." she will answer with conviction. "My daddy told me so." And that's all the proof she needs.
It seems kind of silly for a grown man, though. Doesn't it? What with all the new scientific developments, climate change, earthquakes, wildfires, a roller coaster stock market, and a world economy that looks like it could take the plunge any minute. We read the passages of the... (more)
Daily Devotion Words To No Profit

Chapters: Ezekiel 13-15 http://imfollowingjesus.com/Bible-Reading-243.html
Message Title: Words To No Profit
Hello My Friend,
Prophets, Holy Spirit filled men and women inspired and commanded by God to announce future events. Before Jesus came, God used prophets to speak to His people and the world about His blessings and judgments based on their faithfulness or unfaithfulness to Him. Now that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer and receiver of Jesus Christ, He appoints men and women to teach His Word. He does not appoint them to predict future events as some still believe this. Not every person that teaches His Word is true, in fact, there are thousands of men and women all over the world teaching about God and Jesus yet few are Holy Spirit filled and appointed by God to do so. So, how do we tell the real prophet from the impostor? Vain babbling. â€œOf these things put them... (more)

The Common Ills Iraq snapshot
Iraq snapshot Saturday, August 29, 2015. Chaos and violence continue, Nineveh Province residents state US forces are engaged in on the ground combat there, the Minister of Electricity gets a pass, the press gets giddy over Haider's latest statement, Iraqi activists are being assassinated (don't look for Antiwar.com to cover it), and much more.
Starting with the farce that is reform in Iraq, August 25th, the Minister of Electricity was supposed to appear before Parliament. After no-showing, he finally appeared today. Saif Hameed (Reuters) reports Qassim al-Fahdawi, after answering questions, had the "confidence" of the Parliament and adds, "The exoneration of Fahdawi, who took office a year ago, could stir anger among protesters who complain they have yet to see tangible results from reforms announced this month by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi."
There are no results -- tangible or otherwise -- in any of Haider's announcement.
Friday saw the fools come out -- not just... (more)
