A Stark Doodle For A Stark Statement/Question

Oswald Chambers cuts right to the core of our humanness and so called “goodness” with this;

11_15_15_What Is That To You?_#364

One of the hardest lessons to learn comes from our stubborn refusal to refrain from interfering in other people’s lives.  It takes a long time to realize the danger of being an amateur providence, that is, interfering with God’s plan for others.  You see someone suffering and say, “He will not suffer, and I will make sure that he doesn’t.”  You put your hand right in front of God’s permissive will to stop it, and then God says, “What is that to you?” . . .

. . . A saint is never consciously a saint–a saint is consciously dependent on God.  –Oswald Chambers

In short, what Jesus is saying is–stop looking at and worrying about what’s going on in other people’s lives–GROW UP! Keep your eyes on ME alone.  TRUST ME!

    • Hi Oneta, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I was just checking yours out and will continue to see what you are up to. BTW, I may not be your age but my children lived off of homemade bread ;-)–yum!!!! My doodling devotional blog is going to take on a different look this coming year–fewer posts, different style, more posts on The-Bird-Watcher.com, but I’ll still be consistent–probably Fridays. Have a blessed and fruitful 2016. Keep blogging.
