1 Timothy 5:1 “Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but rather appeal to him as a father, to the younger men as brothers,”
Growing up, I sometimes envied being a girl as I watched my brothers do all the “cool stuff”. They got all the cool toys. They were able to play all the cool sports. They even wore cooler clothes. I often thought that girls got the short end of the stick having to wear silly dresses and play with silly toys. By the time I was 12 years old, I was convinced that being a boy was a better deal.
1 Peter 5:10 “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
Every March, for the past 13 years, my mind wanders back to the 2005 Conference USA Tournament where the Memphis Tigers went up against sixth ranked Louisville. Both teams played their hearts out until the final 6 seconds of the game. The score was 75-73, Louisville, but Memphis had possession with 3 free throw opportunities.
Mark 4:19 - “but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.”
Do you remember the old Sesame Street song about identifying differences? The song says “One of these things is not like the other. One of these things just doesn’t belong.” The characters on the show would have 4 objects that look very similar, and the object of the game was to identify the one item that looks like the others, but is slightly different.
Psalm 16:8, “I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
It seemed like the lane I was in had the slowest drivers ever. Our lane seemed to creep and crawl forward, yet it seemed the lanes on either side of me were moving ahead much faster.
