i have a theme song, found in Psalm 101, it is really not “mine”, it belongs to God so
My theme song is God’s love and justice, and I’m singing it right to you, God .
I’m finding my way down the road of right living, but how long before you show up?
I’m doing the very best I can,
I’m doing it at home, where it counts.
(Rather than a world wide tour to reach hundreds of people I am being sure to preach the good news God has for us by living His word & ministering to my family, close friends, co-workers & neighbors a.k.a. the people living in the house in front , those on both sides & behind me. Each of my children’s bedrooms are like different countries. I enter into their world & be part of it, in order to share Jesus).
Now the hard part, choosing who to give time to & who to avoid – going on with Psalm 101:
I refuse to take a second look at corrupting people and degrading things.
(God works hard on building me up why put myself around people who pull me down).
I reject made-in-Canaan gods, stay clear of contamination.
(see blog post. Avoiding Toxic Air oh how we need to “breathe HIM in & avoiding toxicair”).
The crooked in heart keep their distance;
I refuse to shake hands with those who plan evil.
I put a gag on the gossip who bad-mouths his neighbor; I can’t stand arrogance.
(i have to let GOD keep my own ego in check).
But I have my eye on salt-of-the-earth people— they’re the ones I want working with me;
Men and women on the straight and narrow— these are the ones I want at my side.
But no one who traffics in lies gets a job with me;
I have no patience with liars.
I’ve rounded up all the wicked like cattle and herded them right out of the country.
I purged God ’s city of all who make a business of evil.
Psalm 101:1-8 MSG
