Cranky Old Man

Perspectives

Old Man 1 From Facebook: When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed he had nothing left of any value. Later, the nurses went through his meager possessions and found this poem. It so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital. One nurse took it to Melbourne. It later appeared in magazines across the continent and now wings its way around the world over the Internet.

Cranky Old Man

What do you see, nurses? What do you see?
What are you thinking when you’re looking at me?
A cranky old man, not very wise,
Uncertain of habit, with faraway eyes.

God’s Name Is To Be Held In Reverence

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” Deuteronomy 5:11 (NASB)
“Holy and reverend is His name” (Psalm 111:9). God’s name is to be held in reverence, as God Himself is. “In vain” represents a Hebrew expression that has varied meanings and can apply to much more than just swearing. This Commandment is violated when His name is used lightly, frivolously, and with no meaning or purpose at all; it is violated when one swears profanely by God; it is violated when one swears falsely by God; and it is violated when one uses God’s name as a mere expression of surprise, alarm, or indignation.
Someone may say, “I don’t mean anything by it,” to excuse such frivolous use of God’s name. But “without meaning” is one of the meanings of “in vain.” The name of the Lord ought never to be spoken or written without reverence.
