|Whom do you trust?|
She replies that she did not. Good. I already know that I can pretend to be one thing while actually be another sometimes - just like everybody else - but I didn't want it to be so obvious. This seems obvious - paying lip service (or license plate service?) to God while actually going my own way in life.
"I thought you were going to put the frame back on the camper," Darling Bride continues. Yes, the frame originally was for our camper, but I moved it to the van last fall when the camper went into winter hibernation.
My reply, "That would involve another round of unbolting and rebolting license plates" convicted me that I not only can I be a hypocrite, but I can also be lazy.
|We like Indiana Dunes State Park|
As far as anybody knows, we are a nice, normal suburban family.
Psalm 37:3-5 tells us,
Trust in the LORD, and do good;
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will act.
Lord, please remove from me the desire of being seen by others one way and actually being another way. May I delight in you rather than do whatever I like without regard to trusting in you. In Jesus's name, amen.
