Doing Five Minute Friday here today.
Prompt word: “TENDER”
Oh, that our hearts were more tender toward the God who poured out such tender, painful love for us. Oh that we cared enough to want to worship Him daily in the beauty of holiness, instead of being so distracted away by every novelty of trivia.
I see sometimes such crassness instead of holy awe. Pride in being a Christian on the one hand and next moment questionable humor or angry politics or overindulgence in His blessings, forgetting Him.
Oh, let us worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness, let us let “Christ in us” fill us enough that He shines forth in the perfection that’s His alone, and He is seen, and we, as the background setting we’re meant to be, fade pale in His light.
Disclaimer, added after the 5-minute writing bout: Assuredly, I need this reminder as much as anyone. He is so good to me, never forgetting tiny me — and in all life’s crazy distractions, I too often forget awesome and amazing and holy Him! Unbelievable! I grieve myself! And I’m sure I grieve Him…
