“….Are you DEFINED by your accomplishments, or by that serious mistake you made 20 years ago?”

EgretWhat defines you? Are you best known for what you OPPOSE, or for those things you LOVE or promote?  Are you DEFINED by your many accomplishments, or for the single serious mistake you made 20 years earlier in life?  Do people applaud you for your public stand against abortion and gay rights?  Or, are you criticized for favoring gay marriages and weaker immigration laws?  Do you brag on being an atheist, or down play your Christianity by watching Church TV, rather than being seen going to your neighborhood Church of choice?  Would you be willing to give your “very life” for Christ and your fellowman?  Or, would you run for the nearest safe-house for Christians?   Are you even definable?   James 3:10-12 – From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and salt water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives, or a grapevine produce figs? Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water. …Blessings…cjlb…10-21-13
