At 11:25 pm last night, Andrew Breitbart tweeted an explanation and conditional apology for an earlier derogatory comment to the tweetee.
Some five minutes later, he wound down a face-to-face conversation with a stranger.
That is, we try to.
It really is a dumb effort.
But we’re still prone to try it.
Somehow, we seem to think another’s flaw provides us with the flawless excuse.
Another’s gossip and evil surmisings are too narrow to hide my vengeful thoughts or fight-fire-with-fire speech.
Someone’s hypocrisy is too narrow to hide my apostasy.
Another’s wrong is too narrow to hide my unforgiveness. In fact, my own hurt at another’s misdeed is too narrow to hide my unforgiving spirit. Read it all
He died this morning.
I just stared at the headline.
I knew he had cancer. I knew he’d fought it off at least once. I didn’t know he was that bad off, though.
He had a good radio show before he went to the White House as press secretary. I enjoyed listening to him. And I was glad to hear him once in a while on The Radio Factor after he retired from his WH job. But I didn’t know him personally. So why should his death matter to me?
I don’t know.
And why should it matter any more than the young man in Somalia that died at about the same time Tony did? (I assume one did.)
I don’t know that either.
In any event, I keep wondering what Mr. Snow learned after he died.
What will you learn after you die?
So…what should we learn before we die?
And when shall we try to learn it?
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).
May the Snow family find the Good Shepherd’s comfort and peace and strength and courage.
Closing out his first hour this afternoon (at least here in Oregon on 750 KXL), Michael Savage said (and I quote to the best of my recollection):
|I don’t know if God Himself can save this nation.|
Sir, God can save this nation!
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).
Yes, God can save America.
But will He?
Or is the cup of iniquity of the United States of America too close to full by now?
I don’t know.
And if God chooses to bring judgment on the USA, what will I do?
Would to God that I will stand strong. And shine strongly with the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
