Weigh

This is an antique scale from England. It even has the weights, although I have not tried to actually weight anything on it. It does make a lovely and unique fruit bowl!

Some of the most chilling words in the Bible are from Daniel: You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Not a direct quote - and perhaps better known as the handwriting on the wall. Found wanting - before God I never want to be found wanting.

Do I weigh my decisions and my words carefully enough? In the "big" things of life, yes. In the little every day things, no, not so much. And then that law of unintended consequences jumps up, but that is another post for another day.

And do I sometimes put too much weight on my world? Does it matter too much how many comments I get to a post? Do my fellow bloggers like what I said? Is the office newsletter okay? Enough of that. . .this could turn into a post on Worry!

We do need to weigh our words and actions before the Lord. Because of His great love for me, His atonement on the cross, His resurrection, I will not be found wanting before God. Hallelujah!
