Do you know what Diner slang means when someone says "Give me a 50/50?" Is it meaning to give a poached egg; Coffee with half/half; Eggs & bacon; or Toast cut in half? Make a guess Also do you know the medical term for writer's cramp? Yep your right It is Graphospasm" Wednesday 9/20 Eccl. 5:2 "Don't make rash promises, and don't be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few." Well much meaning can be confused when we are translating from Hebrew to Latin to English, so Solomon many times writes in comparative style so that it can be less confusing. Here he lays out for us several words of guidance in our actions of prayer: Don't make promises to Him if you have no intention to carry them out in the long term Don't say words for repetition sake, Another verse clarifies this concern in Matt. 6:7 And when you pray, do not use vain religions as the heathen do. For they think they will be heard for their many words." Do come before Him in open, honest conversation, for He knows our heart, soul & mind, We must remember that we are His children, therefore we can learn from our children in just what brings pleasure from them, Have you ever had on of your children when you ask them, Do you eat one of those fresh backed cookie after I told you not to? Then they in the most sincere facial expression reply, No never, as the chocolate runs down the corner of their mouth? It is important for us to realize that though God is eternal He desires our honest, sincere expressions in prayer. So Go With God in your prayer life and He will hear & respond in the best way for our future benefit.
