Guilty of Neglect + Natural?

I just took a nice long look at my autographed Matt Bradley jersey. It reads, “To Father White, Thanks for Rocking the Red!”

To my horror, I realized: My pathetic blog has ignored the Capitals in a shameful manner.

At this moment: 1. The Caps are leading their division. 2. The Caps are tied with the Detroit Red Wings after two periods.

Who just scored? Matt Bradley, people! My man Matt Bradley.

Please forgive me for my inexcusable neglect of the best team in town. Mea culpa. Caps ROCK!

…Here’s a question: What comes naturally to us?

On the one hand, we could say that it comes naturally to us to acknowledge the awesome greatness of our Creator. It is natural to humble ourselves before Him and to want to please Him. We were made by God and for God, so to worship Him is the most natural thing in the world.

On the other hand, we could also say: It comes naturally to us to be selfish, lazy, obtuse, and given to seeking short-term gratification. We are born sinners, so sinning comes naturally.

Both of these answers to the question are true. How do we deal with this mess?

The short answer is this: Keep the sabbath.
