I think the first one mentioned is also called “takers.”

Yes…but we should be givers
August 15, 2016 at 16:05
That’s the second one. 🙂

Did you see Patrick’s comment I thought it was really great.
August 15, 2016 at 12:31
Bahaha! This cracked me up, Wally, because I often have little use for people. God does however, go figure. 🙂

I get that IB. I really do LOL. I agree, of course, that people are mostly of little use. As you pointed out, God disagrees and seems to want me to behave and feel the same way. As you said…go figure. 🙂

God is watching, He keeps His eyes on the evil and the good. While men applaud or hate what others do, it is never completely understood by them, because one can never be completely sure of another intentions. With God it is not as important what one does or doesn’t do, but rather why they do it or don’t do it. Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart, the intent of the heart.

…or what God did through them.

Nice Patrick! That is a great addition to this thought. Thanks friend. Are you in the rainy zone down there or are you north of the worst?

Unfortunately some people are also only interested in what they think you can do for them or give to them… they have very little desire to hear anything of Jesus… – it’s like ‘shut up quickly’ and give me what I’m asking for (not realizing the ultimate source is the one you’re trying to introduce them to).
August 15, 2016 at 19:08
Indeed so. We humans are a selfish bunch aren’t we?
August 15, 2016 at 19:06
Are we interested in people for themselves, period?
August 15, 2016 at 19:10
Yes, Mike I would say we should be. After all, we are all created in the image of God and have much inherent value.
August 15, 2016 at 19:12
I agree. We all have inherent dignity and worth
August 16, 2016 at 08:04
Do Christians you constantly mock, ridicule, and insult have dignity and worth Mike? You don’t treat them as if they do.
August 16, 2016 at 08:10
Yes they do
August 16, 2016 at 08:23
Then maybe you could treat them that way.
Even if you had a good case to make for rejecting Christianity (you don’t) your approach and how you interact with Christians is so off putting, few pay any attention to you at all.
You comment on my blog daily and all the comments go strait to spam just so readers don’t have to put up with your hate.
If I were you, I would see that as a huge problem and, perhaps, try a little self-reflection.
August 16, 2016 at 08:32
Vice versa buddy. Past that I’m not gonna continue the fight you are trying to pick
August 16, 2016 at 08:35
I’m not picking a fight, nor am I rude and full of hate for people I disagree with.
August 16, 2016 at 08:39
This is called not picking a fight? Lol
August 16, 2016 at 08:41
Hey Mike news flash…to disagree with you is not picking a fight
August 16, 2016 at 08:48
I’m pretty sure you and I weren’t disagreeing on the value, worth and dignity of every person. Don’t think James was disagreeing with us either.
August 16, 2016 at 08:49
He used my comment to attack me personally. That’s picking a fight
August 16, 2016 at 08:52
You have made a blogging career of personal attacks
In fact you invite Christians to your blog just so you and your buddies can and insult them
August 16, 2016 at 09:11
I am actually sorry I weighed in here Mike.
Enjoy the rest of your day, I’m out.
August 16, 2016 at 08:40
Mike get real and quit whining how mean to you we are
Your initial comment on this thread was a snipe at me and you know it.
In fact your entire blog life consists of pot shots at Christian bloggers then squealing when they obviously don’t like it
Frankly your comments being moderated is a huge favor to you that prevents you from really looking like a fool

I talk to a lot of people Wally and I have found many, including the materially poor and homeless, who don’t want much from anyone except to know someone cares about them.
August 16, 2016 at 06:56
That’s so true James, and so rare today. Even among those who claim to “care” actual care seems real. In other words, toss money at people. What people want and need is real, breathing fellow humans to actually interact in real life. Great point, you made me think this morning. Convicting point, too, for me.
August 16, 2016 at 07:56
I spend a good amount of my free time with drug addicts, criminals, prostitutes, the homeless, and many other people society seems to kick to the curb and, I can tell you, what they need more than anything is love and just knowing people care.
August 17, 2016 at 21:00
Convicting but good question!
August 17, 2016 at 21:03
I thought so, and the conversation was interesting at times.Thanks for coming by brother Jim
