September 19, Today’s thought — Short Sentences

Winter garden beginnings

Good Morning

They continue saying things that mean nothing , thinking God will hear them because of their many words, Matthew 6:7

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Matthew 6:7 KJV

I love the short sentence. . .
What follows are cuts from some of my books and a couple of others.
Keep the ones you like.
Forgive the ones you don’t.
Share them when you can.

Pray all the time. If necessary, use words.
God forgets the past. Imitate him.
Greed I’ve often regretted Generosity — never.
Don’t ask god to do what you want. Ask God to do what is right.
No one is useless to God. No one.
Nails didn’t hold God to a cross. Love did.
You will never forgive anyone more than God has already forgiven you.

Max Lucado, When God Whispers Your Name

And when you pray, do not heap up phrases (multiply words, repeating the same ones over and over) as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard for their much speaking Matthew 6:7 Amplified Bible

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
