NIPTO, Day 362


Today was... kind of uneventful.
Did school. Worked on my shtuff for lit class. Babysat (more on that in a bit). Came home and finished my book. Ate dinner. Took a shower. Watched Center Stage (AMAZING dancing!). And now I'm watching "What Would You Do." So interesting to see what people do in different situations. Yeah.

Okay. Babysitting. So yesterday N said that he would read for 30 minutes when he got home. He wanted to play and agreed quickly. I should've gotten it in writing ;)
When he got home, he automatically (almost the first words out of his mouth!) asked if he still had to read. Uhhh yeah. You said you would. So that got... a little crazyish. He eventually stormed off to his room and I sat against the basement door (where he wanted to go) and read my book. He came down 20 minutes later and said he had read for half an hour. Uhhhh you've barely been home for half an hour. Read for 10 more minutes. At least. I almost made him read for 15 more. He called me a mean babysitter and told me that he was going to tell his mom that he didn't want me to be his babysitter any more. He's said that before. I'm not too worried about it. Especially since when his mom got home, she told him that he shouldn't argue about reading with me. *hmf*!
So that was the craziness for today.

I should finish this up and go to bed. I have to take a practice ACT (with writing, probably) in the morning. yippee??  Yeahhh......

1 Timothy 6:17-21

 17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Those who currently have money shouldn't be arrogant with it or  put their hope in their money. Money is uncertain. Your hope should be in God. God provides everything for us, including our entertainment!

18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

People who have money should do good with their money and should be generous and willing to share. When people are generous with their money, they build up their treasure in heaven. When you're generous you're able to take hold of life that is truly life. 

 20 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, 21 which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith.
   Grace be with you all.

We need to guard what's been entrusted to us. We turn away from the godless things and false knowledge. 

Grace be with you all.
