good quote

" In my opinion, the great single need of the moment is that light-hearted superficial religionists be struck down with a vision of God high and lifted up, with His train filling the temple. The holy art of worship seems to have passed away like the Shekinah glory from the tabernacle. As a result, we are left to our own devices and forced to make up the lack of spontaneous worship by ...bringing in countless cheap and tawdry activities to hold the attention of the church people." ~ A.W. Tozer

Sometimes you just have to deal with the poo...

Proverbs 14:4- "Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox."
What I got from this: Sometimes in order to get things done; to grow or increase... you got to deal with the poo... HAHAHA!

I could use this verse on so many things in life other than the obvious... take Joseph for example... He had a dream that one day his brothers would bow down to him... Look at all the "poo" he had to deal with to get 

David was anointed king of Israel, and look how God brought that to pass.. The fact of the matter is that sometimes in order to grow or "increase" you still have to deal with the's just part of it...

I thought about a lady at my church who is expecting a baby. Think of all the mess that comes with that.. Kids are a blessing and a joy to the home. They are an increase to the bounty of the parents and the fruit of them and even more so if they believe in Christ as their Savior. But they have their share of "poo", believe me. They cry, they get mad, they get tired and so do the parents. But all in all.... for the "much increase" that comes... it's worth the poo.

So... sometimes you just have to deal with the poo... :-)
