Well sometings on a Monday all you need is something simple and concrete to get you going and back into the swing of things. And frankly(I love saying that because CEO of my company used to say this all the time, during his public addresses), thats all I have the brain to deliver today. I spent a little time with Paul and Titus this weekend and these rules for good living seemed apropos to share this morning.
3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.
