Financial update on GospelFriendships.

We're running a $5800 deficit. I will warmly welcome any who would like to join this cause as a monthly/annual supporter, or send a year-end gift. GospelFriendships, 110 Johns Rd, Cheltenham PA 19012-1307. For monthly supporters we also provide electronic funds transfer so you don't have to mail a check each month.

When I'm irritated with myself,


that's ALWAYS a sign of pride, human-wisdom-dependency. The humble -- Jesus-dependent, are able to say, "So WHAT?" to failure. They ACCEPT themselves as failures at following Jesus. BECAUSE. The imputed worthiness of Jesus is ENOUGH for them, so they need none of their own. Leaving them content, happy, peaceful. And fruitful with seculars. Humility is a fruit of the Spirit's work, freshly convicting us of pride.


And when I'm easily irritated with myself, I notice I'm easily irritated with others. Critic of everyone and everything. Pride, not humility. A humble Christian enjoys everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is.


-- Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, not a humble Christian
