I find that my life is filled with ‘notes to self’ moments where I need to make note to self regarding the often obvious issues of the day that I need to address.
For example ...
With these two very real world common sense NOTES TO SELF.. let me continue on this theme.
Old Testament.. NOTES
Adam.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Learn your Times Tables’
Adam.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘a rib in exchange for pretty woman is a sweet deal’
Cain.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘God’s ways are not PETA friendly’
Mr. Unicorn.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Don’t mix up RSVPs with the daily junk mail’
Abraham.. NOTE TO SELF.. 'Wear comfortable underwear.'
Abraham.. NOTE TO SELF.. Do not confuse ‘My wife and my sister.’
Abraham.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Do not confuse wife with maidservant.’
Bob the Bull.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Beware of the Jew wearing the 'You Can't Grill it til you Kill It." t-shirt
Sam the Sheep.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Always remember to FLOSS’
Spy #1.. NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Don’t hide out with prostitutes’
Guard Tower Sentry.. ‘Don’t Trash Talk those who are in Marching Bands’
Goliath – NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Beware of boys with sling shots that smell like sheep’
Solomon – NOTE TO SELF.. ‘It is good to be married’
Benny the Baal Priest- NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Jewish Prophets tend to be Smart Alecs’
Shadrach – NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Hot.. is the new Cool’
Larry the Lion- NOTE TO SELF.. ‘Don’t pig out at the salad bar, and have 3 large pops on all you can eat prophet night at the Old Testament Buffet.'
There you have it.. NOTES TO SELF from the Old Testament. Just a little fun with great stories from our Bibles.
My prayer for each of you today is to enjoy this life God has blessed us with (even in the year 2020). To love God with all my heart soul and mind and others as myself (Matthew 22:35–40, Mark 12:28–34, and Luke 10:27a.).. in all that I do. and Trust in the Lord will all my heart and lean not unto my own understanding, in all my ways acknowledge Him and He will direct my paths.. Then by comparison .. the rest is trivial pursuit.
