Picking and choosing ( for the faithful )
For those of us who have faith it is clear none could follow any Holy Book to the letter. We fall short of the mark I am afraid.
How do you pick and choose?
I will start off with my thoughts, which I dont usually do. I usually wait then speak.
I think that (as a Christian) that I have the responsibility of maintaining a healthy relationship with tThe Lord and he will give me insight as to what I need to do for me. I know his desires for my life in no uncertain terms. (generally speaking that is) In other words I know what of my actions and behavior are displeasing to The Lord. I believe if I ever solve what I know about today he will reveal more to me.
I dont think Jesus cares if I have clams for dinner.
What do you think?
How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong. Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these. GeorgeWashingtonCarver
