my first meme

Tagged by Paul over at Sacred Vapor.

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.

To be honest, I first realized I was tagged when I was surfing from my wife’s computer over the weekend, but didn’t really want to know what was on page 123 of the latest Danielle Steele novel. (As Seinfeld would say, not that there's anything wrong with that.) Back at work today, we must have lost power over the weekend as I needed to remove a book from my desk clock in order to reset it. So from Erwin McManus’ Soul Cravings we get:
It seems pretty clear to me that we will never become gods and I think somewhere deep inside we all suspect this. The good news is we don’t have to become gods to become something worth loving, worth respecting, worth valuing. Don’t let your shortcomings and flaws convince you that you need to become something other than human.
Tagging:
TK
Pat’s Place of Grace

Kansas Bob
And whoever else wants to play…

No cheating, You said, so from the book closest to me at this moment, The Ryrie Study bible, NASV, red letter:

All the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance. Then they said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die." Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid; for God has come in order to test you, and in order that the fear of Him may remain with you, so that you may not sin."So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the thick cloud where God was.

Exodus 20 verses 18-20.
