glory

In a very real sense not one of us is qualified, but it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualification, then there’s no danger that we will confuse God’s work with our own, or God’s glory with our own.”  Madeleine L’Engle

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.  Corinthians 3:18

bad company

“It is better to be alone than in bad company.”   George Washington

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”       Ist Corinthians 15:33
