Verses 12-29 make me think of the parable of the wise and foolish builders. If we just hear God’s Word, but do not act on it, we are acting foolishly, and as Paul says, even sinfully. Just going to church or reading our Bibles or memorizing Scripture is not enough: the Bible is not meant to just be read or heard, but to be obeyed.
This is a hard truth, because it’s much easier to read or even memorize God’s Word than to live it out. If I am honest, there are a lot of things that I do that don’t conform to the standards set down in Scripture. But if I want to honor God in my life, I need to let His Word change me inside and out. I need to build my life on the foundation of the Bible.

The cashier lady talks a lot and does not seem to notice that Arnold didn’t want to buy the groceries. She didn’t bother to ask him why he wanted to speak with the manager or why he had so many boxes of cereal. She clearly saw that he was looking for the manager and not the cashier. I do not really think she took advantage of his disability, but she definitely did not do a good job. She probably knew he was disabled, but didn’t do anything about it. If she was the same cashier as the one in the beginning, she would have recognized him and realized that he was not buying the stuff. Arnold did not do anything about it, though. He had the chance to tell the cashier that he was returning the stuff instead of buying it and it is clear that he thought this, but he decided to buy the groceries again. It would have been awkward, but I’d rather have an awkward conversation than be scammed.

I think it’s wrong that her grandma is trying to marry her off to an older man that’s been asking for her , its uncomfortable to think that she’s willing to hurriedly hand her over just cause she’s of age now

I think she really loves her big baby Brickz and has it well trained just in case any thief tries to steal from her house Brickz will be waiting to attack him even more if the person the try to go in the house is not known in the house or by the Brickz. this means that she believe that her dog Brickz can defend that house no matter what and that she do not gone leave her dog’s side no matter what or any cause .

They may both be scared, but Starr tried to comply completely, because of the talk she got from her parents, while Khalil is angry that they were pulled over for almost no reason.

She feels like she needs to put on an act, or pretend to be someone she’s not, just to fit in.

In Native American culture, ancestors play a tremendous role. One of the conditions the chief laid down was that they will not be denied the privilege ‘of visiting at any time the tombs of our ancestors, friends, and children’. When man perishes the spirit of the dead will remain. A place of solitude needs to exist to keep the sacred bond between the living and the dead intact. Molestation in the context of the text is the older definition ‘ the action of pestering or harassing someone in an aggressive or persistent manner.’

It is interesting how we often seem to take it for granted that the ‘ majority rules’. Yet if we were to follow Thoreau’s philosophy it is evident that laws should be made by following our conscience, by looking to be just and doing what is right. We must respect what is right before we respect what is the law. Law can be and are often unjust. We the people should feel obligated to do what is right.

I see what you mean. Thoreau tells of his belief that the American government is needed to a certain extent. But, at the same time, states how more is achieved when the government steps aside. Thus creating an opening for the American people to take over, to be creative, and to get things done. The government takes credit for many things it did not achieve. These accomplishments come from “the character of the American people”. And much more would have been achieved if the government had not been in the way. So true.
