Sunday, Jan. 1
Note: I have toyed with the idea of cutting back my output of blogs due to age and time issues and am still mulling things over. I will cut back only when my schedule becomes intolerable.
Be What you Are
“Be who you are and say what you feel—because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”—Dr. Seuss. This is “cute” and has a point, but when you think about it a bit, it is loaded with flaws. No matter how bad a life I live, there are people that won’t care. And no matter how good a life I live, there will be people who won’t care. This philosophy ignores the fact that first and foremost we are accountable to God. It doesn’t include the truth that there is an eternity, that I will either end up in hell or in heaven. Enjoy the cuteness, but don’t let it pervade your thinking. God is ever present and will hold you accountable.
