Oh Lord, purify me, make me a chalice in which you dwell, offer your sacrifice in me and spread your love through me. Let me shine like gold, adorn me with the jewels of virtue that I may always be open to you. Fill me. Overflow me. Let me be like that most perfect vessel, the Singular Vessel of Devotion, She to whom I cry for protection against the Evil One. I ask this for your glory, for the vessel is nothing without the sustenance inside, the cup nothing unless it is filled. Oh Lord, purify me.

Give me a word, Abba

Job 11:1-6

This goes out to all the people out there (and especially Bloggers and other NewMedia persons) who believe that as long as they hash something to pieces, they will convince everyone that they are right. One of the temptations for a blogger is to be the Lone Voice of Reason. Well that's a common temptation, but it comes out in blogs a lot. Anyway:
And Zophar the Naamathite spoke out and said: Should not the man of many words be answered, or must the garrulous man necessarily be right? Shall your babblings keep men silent, and shall you deride and no one give rebuke? Shall you say: "My teaching is pure, and I am clean in your sight"? But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against you, and tell you that the secrets of wisdom are twice as effective: so that might learn that God will make you answer for your guilt.
There has been lots of talk about courtesy on blogs. Oh well, might as well turn to scripture.
