Well, I really thought I put this in yesterday. I guess I didn't publish it or something. So, here we go:

Motivational Quote: "The surest way to prevent an error from becoming a mistake is to admit it." - O.A. Battista

Thought: Confession is good for the soul. Also, being willing to admit our own inabilities can be helpful. Especially if you are leading and make an error, don't blindly follow it. Even if you can only admit it to yourself, admit it and change directions!!!

Prayer: Lord God, you are holy and righteous. The one thing I know about me is that I am not. I confess my lack of being like you. Strengthen me to follow with your strength. I admit my error, my sin, in trying to do this in my own power.

1 Samuel 8:6 ->Pray first. Then confront people with bad ideas.

1 Samuel 8:5 ->Excusing our desires by pointing to other people's sins. I should avoid this. Whatever someone else says or does, I must focus on Christ.

Proverbs 20:1 ->Erring by alcohol is bad. It's not just intoxication, but erring.

Proverbs 20:3 ->don't stir up unnecessary trouble.

Proverbs 20:11 ->Actions lead to distinction.

Proverbs 20:17 ->Deception for gain leads to destruction.

Proverbs 20:22 ->Allow God to handle it!

Proverbs 20:25 ->Don't hurry to commit or promise things to God. Wait and be sure you can follow your commitment.

Isaiah 30:21 ->God confirms through obedience.

Rev. 3:11 ->He will come quick enough!
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
