A few months ago I was nearly down for the eternal count. Though the medics called a code on me, I’m back on my feet, though I’d rather be calling eternity my permanent home. Guess He’d not done with me for now. If anyone wants my gore details, just make a comment. Even though my spelling and my vocabulary took a serious beating, I hope these efforts might entertain someone.
Today’s “Thoughtful Mind” came to me from Oscar Wilde: “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” Wilde was versed in Scripture, as his quote suggested, (Gal 5:22-23) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” This spiritual fruit is not a qualifier for salvation, but instead the good fruit of God’s Holy Spirit. God doesn’t judge our sayings, but the qualities we bear.
I pray God values our grace and mercy at least as much as he values our fruit.
