JDM has received repeated requests for Junior's quips, sayings, analects, even hilarious one-liners, to be compiled into a book or webpage. It is often commented how these concise remarks replay in the mind for years to come, giving simple humor or piercing perspective or new growth. In response, Junior will be publishing a regular quote here. (All content here and sitewide is the intellectual and copyright property of JDM. All rights reserved.)
Most people make decisions to feel something or to avoid feeling something, then they deodorize and defend those decisions with spiritual explanations or smart-sounding reasons. Trying to reason with a disingenuously emotional person is like trying to convince a dog he is not hungry at mealtime or convince a cat the lizard should be allowed to live.
All a person's ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the LORD.
Proverbs 16:2 (NIV)
A person may think their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart.
