Cartoon: Crowning ourselves

Cartoon of a boy with a crown. He says, “Nobody treats me like a king.  Get ready for the mother of all temper tantrums!”

This cartoon is based on Psalm 36:1-2

 1 An oracle within my heart concerning the transgression of the wicked:

         There is no fear of God before his eyes.
 2 For he flatters himself in his own eyes,
         When he finds out his iniquity and when he hates. (Psalm 36:1-2, New King James Version)

We find it hard to admit when we have a pride problem. We hate to admit we like to put ourselves in front of everyone. Yet, thanks to sin, that's how we react to the world. 

We put ourselves on a pedestal. We like to flatter ourselves and we sure hate it when our faults are revealed. What does the Psalmist say is the solution? We need to put God first in our eyes. To fear God means to take him seriously. That's hard to do when we are more concerned about our own problems, or even complain to God about how He's handling the world. 

Today, let us put God first. It saves us a whole bunch of problems, and a few temper tantrums.

Let us rejoice.

Cartoon of a boy at the front door and a Mom. Boy says, “I know, ‘This is the day the Lord has made.’ Can't I rejoice and be glad tonight?”

  This is the day the LORD has made;
         We will rejoice and be glad in it.
          (Psalm 118:24, New King James Version)

Do rainy days (or snowy days) and Mondays get you down? Are you a night owl? does the very thought of morning make you want to file a protest with Department of Weights, Days and Measures?

It can be tough when we don't feel like rejoicing. We like to look forward and imagine when we will feel like rejoicing in the future. Not a future thinker? Some of us like to think back to glory days when we felt like a million bucks and you were sure you can take on the world.

The past is gone. We don't know what the next minute will bring All God has given us is this present moment. Let's rejoice because He has given us another day to celebrate.

Look around you today and think about reasons you can rejoice right now. You can start by being thankful your computer and Internet connection is working. That's a miracle right there!
