Hulk Smash – Part Two

Let’s get something straight.

Anger is not a sin.

Jesus was pure. He didn’t sin, and yet, in Mark 11:15-25, Jesus is clearly angry with the people who are defiling God’s temple. This shows us that anger is not a sin, in and of itself. There is such a thing as “righteous anger”.

This is not righteous anger:

In a much later scene, the Hulk does have the good type of anger, when he’s fighting Loki and the Chitauri. Now, like I said before, anger is not a sin. It’s what you do with your anger that makes you sin. We’ll be talking about that in a later post, so, for now, just remember; even Jesus got angry. Anger is not necessarily a sin, as long as you’re angry at the right thing.

The wind.

It’s such a beautiful noise, at night when you can’t fall asleep and you hear it howling through the trees.

Unless you’re the homeless man on the corner.

You know the one. You pass by him every day on the way to work or school. His thin clothes offer no protection from the cold. His head rests on his knees as he sleeps, his few belongings clutched to his chest.

He’s not a bad man, he’s just fallen on bad times. He had a wife, and two cute little girls. Had. He tried so hard to earn money, doing…

Forgiving One Another

Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

-Ephesians 4:31-32

High Price

Chris Martin Writes

The worth and value of something is determined by the price paid.

My heart breaks this morning for the lost. For those who have never been told how amazing and valued they are in the sight of God. That they are not an accident. That they are not just an unplanned pregnancy. That they are not a mistake. They need to know that God saw and chose them before the very foundations of the world were ever formed.

Millions of people walk the Earth with an identity that is based on the ebb and flow of life, and not the truth of the Gospel. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done. It doesn’t matter where we came from. GOD LOVES US. PERIOD.

The sad thing is, it’s not just the lost who are suffering identity crisis. It’s also many people who call themselves Christians.

We allow the circumstances of life to…

The Tattooed Homeless Man

Such a sweet story.

booklovers1

He was scary. He sat on the grass with… his cardboard sign, his dog (actually his dog was adorable) and tattoos running up and down both arms and even on his neck. His sign proclaimed him to be “stuck and hungry” and to please help.

I’m a sucker for anyone needing help. My husband both loves and hates this quality in me. It often makes him nervous, and I knew if he saw me right now, he’d be nervous. But he wasn’t with me right now.Homeless

I pulled the van over and in my rear-view mirror, contemplated this man, tattoos and all. He was youngish, maybe forty. He wore one of those bandannas tied over his head, biker/pirate style. Anyone could see he was dirty and had a scraggly beard. But if you looked closer, you could see that he had neatly tucked in the black T-shirt, and his things…

Eww… Bugs!

Have you ever thought about how much bugs can teach us?

If you’ve ever watched a colony of ants or a group of roly-polys, maybe you’ve thought about how that’s a lot like us. All of those little bugs crawling around, and there you are, standing over them, with the power of life and death over each of them. Sure, you can’t hear them if they’re praying to you, but it’s an awful lot like us and God.

I’m not saying that God’s just up in the sky watching us as we run around. He hears us, our prayers, and he wants to be a part of our lives. It’s like if you take a leaf and move some of the ants to a different spot. He’s not necessarily going to move you with a giant leaf, but he helps us and provides a strength we could never have on our own.

He has love to share with you, if you’re willing to accept it.
