The Limited

Live it.

The preacher said, "You steer where you stare" this Sunday and I wondered if his words were original. The phrase is used in the Bible (II Cor. 10:12—without the rhyme), and it's common knowledge that someone tends to become like what they focus on. An Internet search didn't reveal much, but finding who said it might require a search through pre-Internet writing, most of which is not digitized or indexed. I want to give credit where credit is due, but there is truly nothing new under the sun (Ecc. 1:9).

Attending a recent funeral, it was impossible to avoid seeing a display board by the casket stating that a star had been named in honor of the deceased. Not to show disrespect, I quietly wondered if anyone knew that God has already named that star. I don't think anyone cared, but by giving the star another name, they violated God's copyright (Ps. 147:4). Something tells me the people who liked the idea didn't care.

Pray it.

You, God, are more than my feeble language can ascribe.
