SORT BY Relevancy
Why have we lost the sense of an Oath. Too often an obligation is mocked by behaviour. Let me share a thought about that. An oath taken does matter if the fellow doesn't care. Faced with such potential at the brink of masonry, it takes a dramatic lack of character to make ones obligations optional. One actually swears an oath to live byprinciples that we agree to study, then quickly discovers what I call the Big And First Dissappointment, learning that the betterment of self, is not on the minds of one and all in the same way it is on yours and mine. Within the gentle craft, do we step ahead alone? Perhaps the boy in us fathoms this as a quest but some boys are braver, some are foolish but it takes a smart boy to know when he needs to apply himself. My brother who is not a mason by the way, taught me about tolerances and I think the lesson applies with masons most stridently. We grow older, we let matters slide and I can tell you it is letting go that changes our tolerances...when we accept far less than our best effort AND WE KNOW IT. Then the lying starts- oh my goodness did I mention our human ability to tell ourselves fantastical lies long enough that we can actually begin to believe them?
Overcoming desire is a terrible challenging task. If one wants to see the reflection of a mature man when he looks in the mirror, he waits for that moment when he has understood and conquerored his own ego and the desires that pour from it like honey from the comb.
For thousands of men, freemasonry has been a classroom of the world. When we're dealing with the big picture, we are all small students, trying to get bye. Stop in for a visit- we'll talk as if we're old and close friends- about things masonic and things of interest to a mason. Then when you're all recharged, I'll expect you will commit scads of random acts of kindness.
See you soon, Graham
This Week's Lesson: "Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice" - (1 Samuel 15:22).
Any relationship requires and understanding of terms. A healthy relationship will recognize the obligations and expectations of both friends. A marriage is similar. However, our relationship with God is unique. We follow Him on His terms. We have nothing to offer other than ourselves. When we make this offering, we recognize that He has expectations of us. His commands must be obeyed as we submit to His governance of our lives. We live out our lives lives according to His plans, not our own.
In this week;s lesson, we will see that King Saul failed to recall the importance of obedience, and suffered as a results. We are wise to learn from his sad example, remembering that obedience brings peace, fulfillment, and blessing.
Marriage between a man and woman, also called matrimony or wedlock, is a socially or ritually recognized union or legal contract between man and woman that establishes rights and obligations between them, between them and their children, and between them and their in-laws.The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually sexual, are acknowledged. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or considered to be compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity. When defined broadly, marriage is considered a cultural universal.

A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.
The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”
Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”
Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.
Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:
“Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)
“The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33

I know that today is the start of the weekend for many of us, however that's not exactly what I mean. After clocking out from your jobs on friday, you probably feel like the kids do when they get out of school. "Free At Last". Well, that is exactly what I mean today. (T.G.I.F.) Thank God I'm Free! Day in and day out we follow the same circle of bondage. We live to meet whatever "Obligation" or "Requirement" that we ourselves or someone else demands of us without any true fullfilment or satisfaction in life. If by any chance we fail to meet those certain requirements, the consequences could be severe.
On the other hand, GOD gives us an obligation to freedom, and a requirement of justice. This means freedom from anything that can possibly overwhelm us or falsely imprison us. Many of us are so imprisoned by these man made obligations, that we are rejecting GOD's genuine offer of freedom and justice.
"For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." (GALATIONS 5:1)
It’s not surprising to hear that we are, as a culture, completely stressed out. Technology has made our lives easier, but not any simpler. We can now get twice as much done in the same amount of time. Our schedules are now inundated with commitments, obligations, and expectations. We live in a hamster wheel of perpetual striving. Consider the toll that it takes on your health and well-being, as well as on your relationships.
In this episode, Jory and Jennifer explore this all-too-common problem and consider ways to find some balance. They discuss the idea of a “Sabbath principle” that incorporates rest into your daily or weekly schedule. What are the risks of over-working and what are the benefits of intentionally resting? How can you possibly build rest into your life? Join them as they share how self-care is anything but selfish.

President John Kennedy's April 27, 1961 speech directed to the press. (5min19sec) Includes:
"We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive & unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it."
"...there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it."
"And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship & concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control."
"Government at all levels must meet its obligations to provide you with the fullest possible information, outside the narrowest limits of national security."
Dr. J.M. Peebles via Summer Bacon, Jan. 2015: "This is going to be a year of reviving the understanding of what freedom means...There's going to be a change in the organization called your United States Government...due to the people in the country here who are going to unite, stating very clearly, very loudly...to be free of the pressure, the encumbering pressure that has come by so much regulation..."
