Daily Quotes – 6/26/10

Idiocy Watch! “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this, saying that they have a major issue with, you know, undocumented people flooding their borders, I would say, I would have to look twice at this, but this is a state that’s a ways removed from the border…” Milwaukee County Board Supervisor Peggy West argues in favor of a Milwaukee County WI boycott of Arizona because, she claims, it doesn’t share a border with Mexico

VERSE: Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. - Leviticus 19:18


THOUGHT: Hanging on to bitterness and keeping alive grudges is consuming work. It leaves little energy for blessing others, praising God, or enjoying life. The only way to get over a bitter heart toward
others is to actively love and serve them in ways that bless their
lives. If we can't do this because it's hard to feel like it is the right thing to do, we do it because we know God and want to please him!
PRAYER:
  Father of light, love and mercy, please remove from my heart any
cynicism or delight in seeing others around me fall. Instead, help
me to be a rescuer rather than a neglector. I want your grace to be
seen in my friendships. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
