Thought for the Day 3/30/2012


The heart is our garden, and along with each action
there is an intention that is planted like a seed. 

We can use a sharp knife to cut someone,
and if our intention is to do harm, we will be a murderer. 

We can perform an almost identical action,
but if we are a surgeon, the intention is to heal and save a life. 

The action is the same, yet depending on its purpose or intention,
it can be either a terrible act or a compassionate act.
Jack Kornfield

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart
           brings forth good things:
and an evil man out of the evil treasure
            brings forth evil things.
Matthew 6:21 & 12:35

My thoughts are the seeds.

Happiness grows at our own gardens, and
is not to be picked in strangers' gardens.
Douglas Jerrould

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts,
and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up,
so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise
to sprout up before all the nations.
Isaiah 61:11

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Psalm for giving thanks.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
Psalm 100
