Picture of the Soul

I visited a photography club and the program presenter preferred shooting portraits and people over photos of landscapes and nature. He said, “There is no soul in a landscape. It could be a desktop photo, or a placemat. Take a picture of people working, studying, or in a religious setting…they tell the story that we are always looking for in a photograph.” In a similar manner, when believers live to please God and love one another, their actions tell a story and their soul is exposed. Paul said, “Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody” (1 Thes 4:11-12 NIV).

-----I Thes 4:11-12 reads like it could be singularly responsible for the liberal Progressive’s hatred towards the Word of God. They boisterously set themselves in every limelight attempting to tell everyone else what they can and can not do, say, think, and believe and how much they can and can not earn or keep while they themselves despise working with their own hands teaching a shame worthy lifestyle of dependence upon the fruits of everyone else’s labors. It’s no wonder liberal Progressives clamor for government jobs. But that infestation will soon end, because the world is about to be shaken to its core after which all government will come to rest upon the shoulders of Him who inspired Paul to write I Thes 4:11-12.

Love you all,
