Well, time marches on & the term simple-minded isn't used any more. But, I have always thought the term was a bit funny and have always thought myself to be simple-minded about certain things :) Throughout life, as I have made senseless mistakes or felt insecure or insufficient in my actions or abilities, I've seen the Lord protect me and help me out. So many times my mind went back to grandma's "scripture" .
Today I almost missed out on something and thought, "If I was paying more attention, I would have known about that". I was extremely frustrated that I was so forgetful about certain things. And, then I quickly thanked the Lord for pointing it out to me. And, I said what my grandmother said that one day. "Thank goodness the Lord takes care of the simple-minded!"
Well, here are a few translations of what my grandmother had said. These are from the Bible, Psalm 116:6:
- The Lord preserves the simple. NKJV
- God takes the side of the helpless. The Message
- God protects those of childlike faith. NLT
- The Lord protects the unwary. NIV
Q: What did I almost miss out on?
