We had friends over last night for game and dessert. We had a blast! One of the games we played was CatchPhrase. If you've never played before, it's a MUST next time you're with friends!

Did you know that God teaches His Truth through anything and everything...even CatchPhrase? During the game, one of my friends says, "I know the answer isn't right, but I keep yelling it louder.  Why do I think that yelling it louder will make it right?"

Absurd, isn't it? Don't you hear the media...the more wrong they are, the louder and more obnoxious they get in their "reporting." But I can't really pick on them. I've even found myself doing that...and not just in games. What about when I choose to go my own way, knowing I'm wrong but fighting that I'm right? The more I know I'm wrong, the louder I get and harder I fight. Absurd, isn't it?

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." God knows that, and that is why He says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." ~ Proverbs 14:12 and 3:5-6

This is so true. What an interesting perspective. God always wants us to trust him but how easy it is to lean on the lies as they are louder. Thank you for sharing Emily.

This is so true. People do all sorts of "absurd" things when they are running from God.

Amen, Emily! If we have to scream and yell that we are right, there is definitely something wrong. For, the Lord is capable of shining His Light on us, if we are right, for all to see--no need to yell. Great post! Blessings!
