Truth is best defined as "fidelity to a standard" meaning that something is true if it matches the object that it is defined by. God commanded the Israelites to have honest measures to weigh out quantities of foods for payment or sacrifice.
"Like Father Like Son" is a statement that we sometimes hear around our world today. It is an unfair analogy and it unjustly hurts people whom are judged by a family member's conduct. It happened to me in high school. I, like my brother, played in various band courses but in my tenth grade year when my brother was a senior, he was not the favorite student of the band director.
Life is not destined to carry on as it is now. Some things we can control and some we cannot. The worst thing we can do is resign ourselves to poor life circumstances. In our finances, many people will believe that they will always have a car payment or a credit card balance. How many people do we know that have said they will always be fat, so why bother trying to stay fit?
When I lived in Wyoming, the greenest place in town was the cemetery. When I first began my running exercises, it was in the mazes of roadways that I timed myself, always working on running more and more. I walked there with a book, and even rode through on the bike on several occasions. It was peaceful and beautiful, and surely in our day that is generally the sense that one would assume about such a place of mourning and sorrow.
Back in our youth, I spent a lot of weekends at my brothers house since he lived very close to where I worked and my working hours were all clumped in the weekends. I usually earned my keep by cleaning the house which included tackling the dirty dishes...and I think I was the only person in the house that ever washed the dishes, and that was only on the weekends.
