So I'm a fool, corrupt, my deeds are vile, I'm an evildoer, not particularly nice to the poor?
in psalm 14 it also says...
"2 The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one."
that means "not even one".
that means "not even" me.
there is no one who does good.
all we can do is try.
i love that prayer... The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
am i corrupt, a fool, an evildoer?
am i not particularly nice to the poor?
are my deeds vile?
speaking for myself...
guilty. Proverbs 12:15
"The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But he who heeds counsel is wise
." Proverbs 1:5-7
"Let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction
." John 14:26
"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,
whom the Father will send in my name,
he shall teach you all things,
and bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you
