Today's Scripture: "He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.” Jn 8:47

See it.

Winner, winner, chicken sinner.

Live it.

Popeye the sailor man said, "I Yam What I Yam and that's all I Yam," but we know the cartoon character was what E. C. Segar, his creator wanted him to be. I often wonder if we (God's people) are what we claim we are. When speaking to a group of people, I realize that a handful might be brothers in Christ, but the rest are either non-repentant sinners or spiritually deaf pretenders who claim to know God, but He doesn't know them.

Recently I attempted to explain myself in regards to having an active, if not unconventional prayer life. I'd all but given up doing this in the past because people either don't believe me or can't wrap their minds around it. The preconception, and often misconception, regarding prayer has blinded people to the simple fact God wants to spend time with us. Simply stated, the only explanation for people not praying is that they don't particularly want to spend time with Him. They'd rather do something else—until there is no other option. Forget the spiritual application, try that in your marriage relationship and see how it works out.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for the time we share just being together.
