Our boys, The Pats are playing against the Denver Broncos in Denver tomorrow and we here at Frenchy's House Party are all fired up for the big game. Tebow has been hot this season and the defense from our boys has been less than fabulous so it should be a nail-biter. We are watching the game at Hedge House as it is also Tobin's birthday and Bob's making dinner. (YUM!) That Tim Tebag is one good looking Christianist but oy, I hope he gives it a rest. All of the ink that's been sprayed around talking about Tebow and his public displays of his faith reminded me of this little chestnut from our old favorite, The Bible (KJV, of course).
1 Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 5 And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward. 6 But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 7 When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. (Matthew 6:1,5-7)
We'll see how much of that we will have to see or hear. I'd hate to get agita after Bob's delicious dinner from listening to that stuff.
