Jeremiah 29:13
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Today's random quote is a good one. I say this because last Sunday my oldest son made the decision to accept Jesus and become baptized. This morning he was baptized. I'm so happy and proud for him. When friends and family were asked to stand, I looked down and saw at least a dozen teenagers stand up for him.
I didn't get a good picture of him, I was too far away up in the balcony. With the way our church is designed you don't get a straight on view of the baptistery when you sit on the ground level. Still there you can sorta see him being submerged.

Today's sermon was on having a closed mouth, a caring heart and a clean mind. Based on James 1: 26-27. The closed mouth meaning we should watch our tongues. Tongues have a great amount of wickedness in them and you should check your before you send it wagging. Kind of a think before you speak thing. A caring heart being we should love each other like a father loves his child. James 27 mentions visiting widows and orphans. The preachers said this isn't a check in say hello kind of visit. It's a if-you- see-something-needing-fixing-fix-it visit. He used how a father will do anything to make sure his children have everything they need. We should do others the same way.
A clean mind, well that's sort of self-explanatory I think. We should not let our selves be tainted by the crap going on in today's world. We should seek to keep ourselves pure as possible.
