The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

Enduring Love, March 26, 2011

"Talent is God-given.  Be humble.  Fame is man-given.  Be Grateful.  Conceit is self-given.  Be careful."
John Wooden

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 118:1

Brook: “tolerate or allow” New Oxford American Dictionary

Psalm 118 describes God's love as enduring forever, it doesn't say God's love “lasts” forever, is says it “endures.” Let's face it, as humans we don't always deserve love and God's love hasn't just lasted, it's had to endure through generations of our conceit. We mess up almost everything we do, relationships being one of them. But while human love is often finite and given with boundaries and conditions, God's love endures forever. Let's try to be thankful for everything we have, including the love we receive, whatever the source. Let's try not to be so conceited that we feel we deserve the love we get, but let's try to always humbly reciprocate the love we receive, so we will ensure enduring love in our lives.
