Live Laugh Love?


Live Laugh Love

There is something about that little 'phrase' you see everywhere that rubs me the wrong way.
Not that it's wrong to live, laugh or love......I just guess if you are laughing, you're probably living.
Now, I'm a great lover of quotes and ditties....but some of them are not very deep....and you must not practice them or say them over and over in your mind until you *believe* they are good and true.
Catchy rhymes and cute sayings are not always true.

It is much better to say things over and over in your mind that are true.
That are good.
That are from the Bible.
There are so many things we should be thinking and doing, we shouldn't have time to do the other worldy things and repeat worldly thoughts and plaster them all over the things we own.
Guilty.

How about these?
Put these on your walls.
On your vases.
In a picture.
On a necklace.....

ponder-consider-heed
preach-warn-admonish
plant-build-work
comfort-edify-refresh
stand-abide-prove
watch-continue-refrain
serve-minister-bless
yield-follow-obey
endure-forgive-forbear
weep-repent-mortify
submit-hearken-believe
hope-cherish-rejoice
arise-suffer-trust
beseech-counsel-press
praise-hear-go
hide-remember-seek

These are all verbs.
They are all from the Bible.
So, I can safely say:
Do These Things.

Excellent point excellently stated!

Like never before, God's people need to be discerning. Technology puts all sorts of concepts, pictures & words in front of us! God's Word is the Truth Meter - as you have reminded me so well in this post.
