Three parables: parable 1

A man and his wife were preparing to go out one evening. The wife came up to the husband and said, "Is this outfit modest?"

"I dare not say," replied the man.

"Honey, I'm just asking if you think the outfit is modest or not."

The husband said, "I should not speculate concerning this matter. I have a personal preference, but I dare not give that."

"Why not?" the woman replied.

"Because I do not have a chapter and verse to tell me whether or not that is modest. The Holy Spirit is bound to use the word alone. Shouldn't I?"

If you mean that your tastes in worship are just personal preferences, then yes, you should keep them to yourself. If you are saying that your worship music is the only reverent music, and that others are being irreverent (and sinning) with their worship, then you ought to provide some strong evidence.

If you take the picture from the right angle with good lighting and composition, yes. If you study the microcosm of life existing on trash, it is also beautiful. There are many aspects of trash that is beautiful. Indeed the entire mechanim that God created to organically recycle waste is beautiful to watch.
