a lofty thought

are these thoughts too high in the sky to be real???

“Good people know about both good and evil: bad people do not know about either.”

C.S. Lewis: Mere Christianity, page 88, Touchstone book,1996, NY

thanks to Laci for the actual quote

and i just read this…“For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush. The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. – Jesus (Luke 6:43-45)

I need to realize that the goodness that I can do is – – Him working through me…

and that He is the petrol on which I run (again – Lewis) and that I can do that good only as much as I am ‘plugged into Him’ through keeping a continual conversation going with Him…

both speaking to Him and listening to Him… and as it good conversation with all persons, I need to listen as much as speaking (prayer)…

listening through quietness, reading the word, hearing the thoughts of other followers who He may speak through…

its such an important conversation.

One response to “a lofty thought

    Very often we hear if for example, Adolf Hitler or Slobodan Milosevich or etc…got saved and repented before they died GOD has grace and forgives them… My mom said a very good thought… “Such a bad people, probably don’t even care…” and we know that it is possible that people harden their hearts(Pharao, Herod…). So I can agree with the statement… 🙂
