"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf is evil and ugly; he is anger, envy, war, greed, self-pity, sorrow, regret, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, selfishness, and arrogance."

"Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:15 Lord keep me innocent like a little child. Thank You Father for removing my guilt from my past. But even today cleanse my soul of the guilt of the present and the future.Innocent of any offense and guile against You. Innocent and free from the corruption of this world. Keep me pure and holy before You. May the truth of Jesus be so pervasive in all my thoughts, actions and dealings that I will be innocent not just in thought but in my attitude toward life and my relationships.

Sitting at the airport in Manila en route to Guam it is hard to imagine what our world would be like without zippers. Both my carry on and check in luggage has several zippers. Inside these bags my passport holder, toiletry case, nutritional supplement pouch and clothing all have zippers.

Manila is quiet at this time of year. It's a long weekend and people go to the provinces to pay their respects to the dead. Our own village was empty. You could tell from the dark houses that people were out of town. I know that my neighbors at my right and left were gone, their houses were dead silent. Ahh, a great time to be in Manila.

We all want to be confident without being prideful (well maybe not all). And we all want to be secure and not succumb to insecurity. And yet as the illustration below shows confidence and security are slippery slopes that can quickly devolve into pride and insecurity. What to do?
