"Woe to me!" I cried. "I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips... (Isaiah 6:5)

When scripture and how we feel meet.

Even Martin Luther is pretty much "forgotten" in that few really thank God on a daily basis for Martin Luther, though there is much of him we are thankful for.

I guess what I mean is, however one defines "toys" with regard to the statement "he who dies with the most toys wins," "toys" really don't matter. I have learned a great lesson in God's economy, at times a secret to being content in obscurity. Contradicting my above statement on the "meaninglessness" of Martin Luther's life, thought, and ideas, and its great separation from great thoughts and ideas attributed to his thoughts and ideas, one might be surprised how by making a difference in even one person's life how, again, in God's economy, the eternal ripples create a tidal wave that could dwarf tidal waves of Martin Luther.

I'm musing about the thought that Jesus treats each one of us as "Neo, the One." Maybe that will be a sermon... "In God's economy and God's eternity, we are all Neo, the One..."
