Daily Post #111

A Student’s Confession: I currently work three online jobs in the world of education. Two are part-time where I teach philosophy, logic, and ethics at two community colleges. My full-time job is at Enlightium Academy. I was grading an essay today and the student stated personally that they love the Lord. It was so genuine and simple. It reminded me that Christianity is not a set of ideas to believe or a worldview to adopt, but a person—the Trinitarian God—to love.

Various Proverbs: I stated a few days ago that I am reading through the book of Proverbs. I am reading a chapter a day (I have missed some, of course). I usually do this with Psalms, but Proverbs is full of wisdom and I need wisdom. To end the week, here are a few that really grabbed my attention, made me stop and think, turned my heart to God, and challenged me. I keep my Bible open on my desk (I work online) so that I can continually glance at these gems.

Proverbs 27:2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.

Proverbs 26:20 “Without wood a fire goes out…” This line made me stop and ask myself: If fire is a picture of my relationship with God, what wood am I placing on the fire? Or am I? Lighter fluid is not enough.

Proverbs 28:13 “Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”

Proverbs 28:26 “Those who trust in themselves are fools…” This applies to the dreams that I hold in my heart for my life. Who do I trust? Whose job is it to get me from point A to point B assuming that point B is in God’s will?
