Sunday Commentary

I have no idea what to post today.
Someone suggested "hey" and "by".

Uh, nope.

I went to church on Saturday and Sunday evening. This is interesting because it starts at 7 pm. Someone sangs a good short song, whoever is preaching says a prayer, and then they have about 50 minutes to preach. Say a prayer at the end, and we are GHOST at 7:59 pm.

No talking much about offering. Give as you leave. GOOD-BYE.

LOL. Fine by me. I live 15 miles away. I am at home chilling by 8:25. That's the business.

I like this saturated way of doing things. This went on some 8 years ago for 30 days and I got a lot out of it. I have a TON of notes.  So I think I will post a few things that were said from the Saturday service that I found interesting.

From a sermon entitled "How Green is Your Garden"

Wisdom is the ability to skillfully apply what you know.

A garden is a patch of dirt that you pay particular attention to. Your heart is like a garden.
Your garden (your heart) is going to produce what you plant in it or it will produce whatever the wind blows its way (weeds and briars). So you better be paying attention to it. Something is always going on in your garden.

[That made me think of my favorite scripture, Proverbs 4:23- Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life].

The activity you are graced to do in this life will produce peace in your life.

A negative outcome in a situation does not give you the excuse to cuss people out. You cannot walk back across the bridges you burn.

Faith is the sum total of your behavior from the point of having a thought/desire in your mind about something to seeing that thing desired manifested in your life.

Interesting stuff. 

Not bad for one hour on a Saturday night.


  1. Loved this. Especially the note on faith relating to behavior.

  2. Wow! Now that's what I'm talking about. I like your church

  3. This is one of the MANY reasons I LOVE your church... and I haven't EVEN been lol
