*He DOUBTED. He just didn’t believe that there was a 4 BR, 3 Bath out there for him. The agent said, “Rest assured, what you hope for is out there! Have faith – I’m convinced it is REAL though you haven’t seen it yet!”
*He was beginning to despise him. Though the messengers saw him, he hadn’t seen him in quite some time. Aside from the occasional diminutive and cryptic message, he hadn’t even heard from him. How was he to go after this little one? The terrain was daunting, and the search came with a 0% guarantee. IF he finds it, truly, he rejoices over it more than over the 99 that never went astray! May the little ones not perish.
*They had just come out of the great tribulation …but the BIG Question is did they wash their robes and make them WHITE in the BLOOD of the Lamb that was slain?
*FROM FOC – – – > “They had a little bit of everything and they had the common sense and good wit to know how to use it.” #i’mbetterthanyou
*You gots any of that SBW (soft black wool)? I needz it! #@ …I need the salve bro – not the substantive stuff …I needz the cosmetic superficiality bro. That’s what I know. And I know whats Iz knows! Misser Masser Bro Bra! PDCA (proud defiant conceited attitude).
*Dantes divine comedy. …You haven’t encountered it? What about that dude who said, “I uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you …therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” And what about that decent guy who really really really thought he was helping. He – of all people – was devoted, dutiful, zealous and righteous! But then he comes to see that he’s actually wretched, wicked, evil, blind, naked, poor, pitiable, and downright bad.
*But they are my family. Shouldn’t I love them? I can’t put anyone ahead of them. …At this point his elevator buddy asked him – do you want to love them? The guy said that he DID love them. But the EB persisted – – – do you actually want to love them – for REAL? Then you must not put them above their Maker/Creator. You don’t know HOW to love those people that you love. He does. You’ve gotta GO TO HIM first – and whence you go to Him first You won’t be able NOT to love Him FIRST and FOREMOST (like when Jane met Ransom). Disordered love is NOT loving.
*He was insecure. So he asked – – – > What do you perceive as inadequate and ridiculous?
*Is not the question that we incessantly ask each other… “Are you disappointed in me?”
*Development is a Life-Long process NOT a two-week product.
*She found him to be inadequate and ridiculous, but she was charitable enough to give him her pity.
*She doesn’t know that when she solicits a second opinion after having arrived at a definitive course of action with him about something they’ve already discussed – that she is making him feel inadequate and ridiculous.
*They had a little bit of everything, and they were blessed with the common sense and good wit to know how to use it.
