The Gospel of Thomas

Jesus said, "The Father's kingdom is like a person who has [good] seed. His enemy came during the night and sowed weeds among the good seed. The person did not let the workers pull up the weeds, but said to them, 'No, otherwise you might go to pull up the weeds and pull up the wheat along with them.' For on the day of the harvest the weeds will be conspicuous, and will be pulled up and burned." (57)

I have recently begun reading The Gospel of Thomas while also taking up a twelve week Bible Study on Proverbs (Kay Arthur) at Olive Baptist Church. Between the two studies I am learning a great deal about human frailty and well....failure.

I fail on a daily basis to live up to God's will for me but each day I realize where I went wrong and the next day I do something to correct it. I strive not for perfection but to walk in the will of God each and every day and to serve others.

I am struggling to keep my mind from the things of the past. I am struggling to keep my head up despite those who don't believe in me.

The bottom line is that the only opinion I am truly concerned with is that of Jesus Christ, The Father and the Holy Spirit!
