Absurd, Isn't It?

We had friends over last night for game and dessert. We had a blast! One of the games we played was CatchPhrase. If you've never played before, it's a MUST next time you're with friends!

Did you know that God teaches His Truth through anything and everything...even CatchPhrase? During the game, one of my friends says, "I know the answer isn't right, but I keep yelling it louder.  Why do I think that yelling it louder will make it right?"

Absurd, isn't it? Don't you hear the media...the more wrong they are, the louder and more obnoxious they get in their "reporting." But I can't really pick on them. I've even found myself doing that...and not just in games. What about when I choose to go my own way, knowing I'm wrong but fighting that I'm right. The more I know I'm wrong, the louder I get and harder I fight. Absurd, isn't it?

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." God knows that, and that is why He says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." ~ Proverbs 14:12 and 3:5-6


  1. So very true about people getting louder, we have neighbors that all talk at the same time, we live in a condo just across the grass from them, and in these summer months, with the windows open you can hear just how they try and talk over each other to be heard!

    Thanks for this post, I found you from the cast team post:
