Jesus Denounces the Scribes
38 As he taught, he said, “Beware of the scribes, who
like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with
respect in the marketplaces, 39 and to have the best
seats in the synagogues and places of honor at
banquets! 40 They devour widows’ houses and for the
sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive
the greater condemnation.”
The Widow’s Offering
41 He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the
crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people
put in large sums. 42 A poor widow came and put in two
small copper coins, which are worth a penny. 43 Then he
called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I tell you, this
poor widow has put in more than all those who are
contributing to the treasury. 44 For all of them have
contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her
poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live
on.” New Revised Standard Version... (more)
TaoblogFriedrich Nietzsche zog die Freiheit der Religion vor
Friedrich Nietzsche war der einzige grosse Denker, der keine blinde Gefolgschaft um sich scharte. Er blieb abseits und alleine. Alles, was er forderte, war, dass man ihm bloss zuhoert. Niemals forderte er Glauben oder Hingabe und unterscheidet sich hierin von vielen Religionsgruendern, die spirituelle Sklavenhalter waren.
Friedrich Nietzsche irrte sich an vielen Punkten, aber er war sicherlich ein Mann, der die Freiheit liebte und die Individualitaet des anderen so sehr respektierte, dass er den anderen nicht dazu bekehrte, ein Nachfolger zu werden. Denn jemanden zur Nachfolge zu bekehren bedeutet, ihn zu zerstoeren, seine Authentizitaet zu blockieren, ihn zu einem Heuchler, zu einem spirituellen Sklaven zu machen. Und das haben alle Religionsgruender getan. Sie haben auf der ganzen Welt die spirituelle Sklaverei begruendet.
Das zumindest hat Nietzsche nicht verbrochen. Er waere dazu faehig gewesen, weitaus faehiger als ein Jesus, Mohammed, Moses oder... (more)
imannuelivanBe Thou My Vision
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,Be all else but naught to me, save that thou art;Thou my best thought in the day and the night,Both waking and sleeping, thy presence my light.
Be thou my wisdom, be thou my true word,Be thou ever with me, and I with thee Lord;Be thou my great Father, and I thy true son;Be thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.
Be thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight;Be thou my whole armour, be thou my true might;Be thou my soul's shelter, be thou my strong tower:O raise thou me heavenward, great Power of my power.
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise:Be thou mine inheritance now and always;Be thou and thou only the first in my heart;O Sovereign of Heaven, my treasure thou art.
High King of Heaven, thou Heaven's bright sun,O grant me its joys after victory is won!;Great heart of my own heart, whatever befall,Still be thou my vision, O Ruler of all. - Eleanor Hull Version , 1912 -

Message Title: Up For The Challenge
Hello My Friend,
I was playing a rather challenging solitaire game, when I finally figured out the key to winning a game it occurred to me how many times I gave up on winning a hand because it was more challenging. That got me thinking how easily we as Christians give up on God. I don't mean walking away from Him, but seeing Him do amazing things in our lives because we're not willing to do more for Him when life is more challenging. We must understand that God is going to always give us challenges, they are what help us grow into the likeness of His Son, the key to winning them is, in fact, His Son. We get close to Him, He helps us win every challenge, and see some amazing things out of it. “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him;...
