“While we are blinded by carnal desires, the commands of God will appear rigorous; and we shall labour more to explain them away, than to obey them: but if once we adopt them as the rule of our conduct, their beauty and excellence will manifestly appear; and we shall be convinced that, to obey them is, to be truly happy?”
Simeon, C. (1832-63). Horae Homileticae Vol. 15: Romans (474). London.

Christianity,

Repay Evil with Blessings

” Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” (1 Peter 3:8-9, NIV)

So often we repay evil with evil and insults with insults. I can remember getting into arguments with family and friends and it would often turn into a volley of insults. In the heat of anger, it seems like the natural thing to do, but if there is anything that I’ve learned from the Bible, the natural thing is not always the best thing for us. Imagine how our arguments would take a turn for the better if we could stop our tongue from spitting our insults and start speaking blessings to the people we love. Perhaps we could calm down the anger and speak rationally. Perhaps we can let our loved ones speak out their frustrations and hurts and just listen. Perhaps instead of saying something that hurts, we can say something that heals. That would be a blessing.

Announcements,

Changed to Blog format

I decided to try out a blog format for my website. This will make it easier to add new items.

Not sure how long it will last, but it’s worth a try. If you want to go to the photography galleries, click the gallery category and it will bring you right to it. I will add more announcements as more features and changes are made

I changed the website over to expression engine. I think this time I’ll be staying with this format. The look may change a little, but the way things work is generally going to stay the same.
