    A good start to the morning

    What a good reminder for starting the day. These are some of my favorite posts. I look forward to getting my own copy soon.

      I know you can order these from Raber’s Bookstore, if I could just remember their address.

      Now, where’s Lance when you need him-he knows the other bookstore you can get these from in Indiana-

      I have one, it was about $6-but it is priceless & humbling

      Rules of a Godly Life is also available from:

      Pathway Bookstore
      2580 N. 250 W.
      LaGrange, Indiana 46761

      The cost is $1.00, plus $2.00 for postage. If you are an
      Indiana resident, you need to add 7% sales tax to the cost
      of the book.

      (If you 10 copies or more, the cost is 80 cents each. And if
      your order totals $25.00 or more, the postage is free.)
      I was at Pathway Bookstore last week and got a copy of their
      2013 catalog. I would say there are over 500 titles listed
      in the catalog.

    This is certainly good advice for us all. Also, I believe the Old Order Amish would agree this rule is a microcosm of their faith. Reading this in relation to the Amish I am reminded of a statement by Karen Johnson-Weiner in the Amish documentary “Plain Intolerance”. Her quote, “If you’re Amish you’re Christian, and you’re literally always in church” (Amish America). Demonstrates how seriously the Amish believe in the principles of a living faith.

    Comment on From: "Regeln eines gottseligen Lebens" (November 7th, 2012 at 11:55)

    From: "Regeln eines gottseligen Lebens"

    This is the old German version: “Siehe zu, dass du ein rechtschaffener Diener Jesu Christi seist, nicht nur äußerlich in öffentlicher Versammlung bei Anhörung des Wortes Gottes, und dem Gebrauch der heiligen Handlungen des Evangeliums; sondern auch in deinem ganzen Leben mit Absagung aller Sünden, und mit einem rechten Gehorsam, nach allen Geboten Gottes zu leben. Sei nicht damit zufrieden, dass Du von andern für fromm angesehen wirst, sondern sei das in der Tat, was du scheinest zu ein. Denn wehe dem Menschen, der nicht heilig ist und doch dafür will gehalten sein.”

    I love when you post these, too, Erik. “Woe unto the man who is not pious yet wants to be considered as such”…that’s pretty thought provoking because I think we all know several of those. Of course I have my own faults, so believe me, I’m not throwing stones. Thanks for sharing and have a great week ~

      I’m glad these are appreciated Beth and Naomi. I’m not always comfortable posting them as I am reminded of my own shortcomings. But I guess that’s not a bad thing.

    That’s why I love the Amish community even when I’ve put them on an unreal pedestal. It’s that ideal of living, breathing, abiding in God that we all strive for in our individual journeys of faith.
