Bad · God · Good · Lord

Big G… little g…

Someone must’ve beat the heck out of him…

A comment about the newish dog at our house… a stray who wandered up hungry a few months ago… who cowered at a raised hand…

And I think about masters… and how they treat those they have authority over…

A good master… with good discipline and love… makes for a happy dog…

A bad master… with cruel discipline and beatings… makes for a fearful dog…

A good master trains his dog… a bad master dumps his…

I think about the difference between our Big G God… and little g gods…

The One is good to all He has made… blesses with grace… and pays the price we could never pay…

The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

Psalm 145:9 ESV

The other is bad… a slave driver… extracting all it can from whoever it can… until they are all used up… abandoned…

The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply…

Psalm 16:3 ESV

The ones who are under God’s authority… know joy… no matter their circumstance…

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 16:11 ESV

The ones who choose other gods… are never content… or satisfied…

“But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. …”

Deuteronomy 30:17-18 ESV

One fills…

For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

Psalm 107:9 ESV

the other steals…

“… The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. …”

John 10:10 ESV

There is only one God who is good… all the others… cruel…

Big G… little g… which god are you allowing to lord over you…?
