” Curiosity Killed The Cat “

An old saying that I have heard for 50 years or more. When someone will ask me a question that I know is sparked from their curiosity I simply answer by sayin, ” Curiosity Killed The Cat! ”
Curiosity is clearly a positive or negative result that we have on a daily basis.
Let me provide you with a brief example.
A very small statured man
, named Zacchaeus, who lived in Jericho awoke suddenly one morning and his curiosity was working in his heart and he said he was going to see a man that many had talked about for quite sometime. This man was JESUS who had been accused of performing some strange acts where people were healed and peoples’ lives were changed.
Zacchaeus made his way to the street where Jesus would pass by but because of his small stature he could not see over the ones already gathered along the way. Therefore , small Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore tree and positioned himself directly over the street where he could easily observe Jesus passing by.
When this man, Jesus, came to the spot directly beneath Zacchaeus in the street Jesus stopped and looked up and said, ” Zacchaeus come down immediately I must stay at your house today!”
Zacchaeus came down immediately and all at once his heart was troubled with the terrible deeds he had done in being a noble tax collector.
Zacchaeus said ” Lord, Lord, Lord now I will give half of my possessions to the poor and if I have cheated anybody out of anything I will pay back four times the amount.”
Jesus said to Zacchaeus, ” Today Salvation has come to this house because this man, too , is a son of Abraham! For the Son of Man, ( Jesus) came to save that which was lost!”
Our daily journey is an experience that makes it possible to satisfy our curiosity whether the results are good or bad. We are all like Zaccheaus in many ways especially when it comes to curiosity about our own Salvation.
What about your life? Aren’t you like Zaccheaus having a curiosity about this man named Jesus? What would you do if you knew He would pass by you way? Think about it?

Sometimes our focus on understanding is a one way street. Being able to voice an opinion or ideology should always be respected even if we do not agree. When the loss of respect enters then the game rules change! Just remember others may not agree with us but we must do what we know to be right! Jesus went to the cross despite warnings of death but He went and died for us all. It would be a shame if in knowing this one would fail to love and follow Him!

Baldwin County Probate Judge Tim Russell, as of Thursday, has opted to no longer perform any kind of marriage at his office.

He said the decision was largely related to an increasing work load within the Probate Office, but acknowledged that he’s “morally opposed” to same-sex marriage.

Russell, who has been the county’s Probate Judge for five years, said he’s committed to conducting one more marriage — a heterosexual marriage to a former county employee — but, after that, he’s done.

When I was 17, I got my first job that didn’t involve fast food, as a technology assistant in the central office of the Baldwin County Board of Education. The job was a new one they’d created for a high school student who had shown promise in computer science. It seemed glamorous to me at the time, but in reality it was a way to find someone…

” A Journey: Life 1 Day At A Time”

As you see I am Jim waiting on Jesus. I am retired 68 yrs old and filled with God’s Holy Spirit.
I have lived through joy and pain, all of which combine to make my journey. My journey no doubt had been very much like others and may not mean a great deal to others but nevertheless it is my journey. Each experience has been rewarding and insightful, maybe not at the time but in time.
On Nov 8, 1971 I bowed at the altar in a small church and repented of my sin and asked Jesus to come into my life and save me—- and He did! This was absolutely amazing, knowing who and what I was and what God was about to make of me! Out of the darkness into the Light! Nothing I did but everything He did and continues to do!
I am waiting on Jesus in every situation of life as well as the return of my Lord and SAVIOUR at the latter day!
This blog will be about the journey both mine, others and His! Come and join me in looking at and seeing Him who is invisible!
Amen!
