Two of my most treasured devotional reading places are in the books of the Psalms and the Proverbs.  From the book of the psalms I’m challenged on my relationship with and trust in Father God, as well as wisdom on dealing with the people around me.  From the book of the Proverbs, I’m challenged both on how open my heart is to what God has to say to me in how I format my brain in wisdom, and the requisite application of that wisdom to how I relate with folks in the culture around me. 
 
Simply stated, it’s all about me and God, and me and people, and me and God and people, and me and people and God, and me, and God, and people, and did I mention:  It’s all about me and God, and me and people?
 
Maybe I wasn’t simple enough on that . . . let me clarify a bit:  When I read these two pieces of Holy Spirit breathed holy writings, I’m in class, learning more about how to relate to my heavenly Father, and how to relate to my people around me.  So, if what Jesus said is true – that the first and greatest command is to love the Lord my God with all of my heart and with all of my soul and with all of my strength and with all of my mind, and that the second is like it in that I learn to love my neighbor (which seems to include everybody I run into) in the same manner that I love myself – then it seems like a good idea to read and meditate on the stuff that will facilitate in my healthy love for the Father and for you! 
 
I so enjoyed my time in Proverbs for August that I’m returning to Proverbs this month, and then rolling back into Psalms for October.  And I’m looking forward to hearing what the Holy Spirit is gonna whisper to me again, as I read these words, again.  Thanks for joining me!  Have a cup of coffee with God, and then a cup of coffee with a brother or sister, and talk about it, as you meditate your way along . . .
 
Shalom,

Pastor D.P.
