Ezra 9:1-10:44 & Galatians 1:1-2:21
“Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would no longer be Christ’s servant.” Galatians 1:10
I was impressed this morning how part of the message at church this morning went with the Ezra reading AND the Galatians reading. Accountability. We are not here to win the approval of people but of God. We’re here to win souls! And to do that requires stepping out of our comfort zone and hold each other accountable. If your brother (or sister) is falling into a pit of sin it’s your job to risk their wrath in order to save you both from God’s. You need to love them enough to help them in Jesus’s name.

Here’s this week’s SHMILY line up:


A silly smile after breakfast.


My first FRUIT!


A sweat bee on my steering wheel at tennis practice.


Another breakfast smile. This one was Anna’s, she asked me to take a picture of it.




More produce from the garden. 🙂


A GORGEOUS sunset after a doozy of a storm while I was at work.
