Sunday Walk

Stones and Bricks

I am grateful to P. A. Oltrogge for bringing Psalm 27 to my attention this past week. Here is the concluding verse about waiting and courage:

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.

Psalm 27:14 King James Version

I found Michael Wilson’s post on the use of the Greek word for slave, δοῦλος, helpful.  He noted that the word is often translated as servant although it means slave.  The distinction is that a servant is hired but a slave is owned.  When I think about it I’d rather be owned by Jesus than hired by him for my good works.  I am grateful that He bought me.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Oh my, what an uplifting post, Frank–thanks so much. I agree with you, being owned by Jesus suits me just fine! This is the former “Jael”–yep, I moved again–and I’d like to reblog this, if it pleases you.

      1. I’ve been told I’m not very good at disguising my personality online, hah! Anyway, you can call me whatever you like–including my real name, Leslie…I’m just too chicken to blog without a pseudonym 🙂 Blessings to you!
