"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Some are optimistic; others just have misty optics.

    The Scripture tells us that a merry heart does good like a medicine. The Two Ronnies was a British comedy show that aired on BBC 1 from 1971 to 1987. It featured the double act of Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett, the "Two Ronnies" of the title. I was trying to think of a verse to go with this youtube video. Maybe 1 Corinthians 13: 12 - "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known." That's a real stretch of course. - JS

    I almost turned blue laughing watching this as I took a short break from work! This is rare comedy gem. Primarily, for it does not contain profanities nor shades of it like the ones that are so prevalent today. Thanks for this post and, yes...I do concur that 1Cor 13:12 is indeed a very long stretch on this, breaking point really :-)
