    Your blog today reminds me that I must always be aware of self, overshadowing my Lord. His forgiveness is so freeing and I hope I am keeping short accounts with Him!!!! I try.
    Your tweet in regard to your daughter’s question and the answer from your son is magnificent….out of the mouths of babes!

    I’m glad you highlighted the phrase, “He would do anything to keep his kingdom. Those like him do the same today.” as it hit me like lighting. I’ve found many more teaching moments this Christmas season with my children and family but the funny thing (by His grace) is that the moments, when reflected upon, are just as poignant for me as I try to ward off my inner Herod. So many things can creep up on my personal pedestal and God allows children to teach me as I teach them. Amazing. I’m so glad that Jesus lifted me (and lifts me still)!!!

      If more of us realized that we all have an inner-Herod lurking in our hearts/minds we would live in greater desperation for abounding grace. Too many of us presume to be wise men, with only a desire for Christ. I think both the Herod & the wise men aspects are realities within us.
