Selah: "to pause and consider"

      …to encourage, exhort, and edify

Brennan Manning

If our faith is going to be criticized, let it be for the right reasons. Not because we are too emotional, but because we are not emotional enough; not because our passions are so powerful, but because they are so puny; not because we are too affectionate, but because we lack a deep uncompromising affection for Jesus Christ.


Prepared for Mar 16, 2018 with prayer that this thought will stimulate thinking about Jesus and His Kingdom
