I recently joined Facebook and after a season of figuring things out a bit the things that I see as positive are more than I'd expected( family groups sharing the history of the family to young family members with stories and pictures) Reconnecting with old friends and schoolmates, etc.
The negative that I find myself surprised by is the political bickering by professing Christians. Right vs left, Trump vs Biden, Republicans vs Democrats ...hours and hours of arguments between the same folks about the same things. Corona virus is a hoax, a conspiracy, caused by Chinese, caused by Nancy Pelosi, caused by Donald Trump, wear a mask vs ain't nobody making me wear no masks...

So with a grieving heart I posted some scripture and suggested Christians pray instead of say ( James 1:19 & II Peter 2:10) and bless their hearts some of the most vocal people that consistently do this click on the "👍" like button, in hardy agreement.
Well if my ivory tower wasn't glass I'd call them out.....😇
Praying is better than saying many times.

That's funny, speaking of Barnie, Toby might be out of his allotted bullets, he came out firing but has gone silent. ( it takes a minute to dig those bullets out of them official officers shirt pockets)

Lost Baggage...

I watched a pastor today give a brief word of encouragement from Philippians 3:13-14 and I'd like to share it if I may.

"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth into those things which are before,
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

He was stressing the importance of "remembering to forget " those sins/baggage from the past that hinder
our moving forward ( usually guilt). Forgetting the past isn't a loss of memory, it's a choice to shut the door on the condemnation/guilt/ weights/baggage and trust in the grace of God that it's under the blood of Jesus Christ and moving forward in faith.
Lose the baggage...
