Three little pigs, one built his home out of straw. The second little pig built his house out of sticks. The third little pig built his house out of bricks. You all know the end of that story.
However, there was a fourth little pig who built his house of glass.
This fourth piggy thought he was so wise; his thinking caused his head to swell. Soon he felt himself a leader. He was looking down at all the others from his glass windows, feeling entirely secure.
He began! As Robin Hood was a hero so he might be also, appealing to the youth and uneducated. With Love —FREE STUFF FOR ALL! Extra Read all about it!
Others in the village, those who built their homes with bricks, soon began to see through this house of glass. Noticing he would not/did not practice what he preached.
Soon his house of glass build on sand began to crack and chip away.
While homes built of brick were unmoveable, it reminds me of the Bible verse. “Upon this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16;18
An Old Adage inspired by FFE
Jack and Jill, Jack be nimble,
Jack the Ripper, Jack-in-the-box the toy,
Playing jacks the game. Don’t forget, blackjack!
It is said that the name
“Jack,” in earlier times, used as
A general word for “boy.”
“Jack of all trades but master of none.”
A description is fitting many today
As we try this and that! Always searching!
Searching for that one talent,
To transcend all others.
Few of us have found it.
Suddenly a flash of 2Tim 3:7
“Ever learning, and never attaining
to the knowledge of the truth.”
Life, what is our purpose of being here? In today’s world, unfortunately, it means doing whatever we want.
If we are honest with ourselves and examine our conscience, we will admit the above idea does not bring us happiness, only unhappiness.
We are merely as the saying goes, “Barking up the wrong tree” or not looking in the right direction for peace of soul and happiness.
Humanity, for all times, is given Ten Commandments to follow: the influence of this world say they are only suggestions.
How is putting the Ten Commandments on the back burner working out for you? Do you know the
“Not doing well today, “Take a pill.” There are pills today for everything under the sun. Medicines to help your state of mind, pills to keep you awake or fall asleep. Some tablets help you lose weight, or cope as struggling through the day Etc. Etc. Indeed! Medicines are gifts of God, not to be abused or replaced with truth. Ask and you shall find! Remember in the end God gives us our desires as we lived them.
Could it POSSIBLY be that WE are BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE? Realizing I have been there done that!
“Children should be seen and not heard,” words often spoken by adults when embarrassed at times when children speak the truth, as children usually do! Adults, at times not wanting to listen to ideas, especially when a child contradicts their view of truth.
There are those times, however, when children are entertaining, and say the cutest things. An example one day being disgusted seeing my grandchild in aw watching the box. Horrified while walking to the T.V., switching it off, looking at her and speaking my mind, I said, “When you grow up, promise me not watch this bad, evil T.V.” Her tender, obedient voice whispered, “I promise grandma, only to watch good, evil T.V.”
As much as I have always listened to children and loving what they say, there are those times when I, too, will be thinking, “children should be seen and not heard.” Admitting they can get quite noisy!
