ohhhhh.... I'm not in too much pain, though, Just vague discomfort.
Had an excellent conversation with a friend last night. He reminded me of my continual need to be humble in all things. Sometimes the humility part may not square with the topic, but that doesn't mean I'm not supposed to show it.
There are a LOT of things I'm supposed to do that I don't do. But forgetting that chapter in Romans on that, how about THIS one:
A Blind Beggar Receives His Sight
35As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37They told him, "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by."
38He called out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
39Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
40Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 41"What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord, I want to see," he replied.
42Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has healed you." 43Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.
There are many many days I feel like this beggar. And when I don't, I ought to.
