I was reading in my Bible; reading in First Chronicles,
but since it was so late, and all those "this man had this son, and they lived for this long, and then his grandchildren were him and him and him . . .", so I sort of was paging through the Bible.
(i know, I shouldn't really do that.)
 And I saw this:
"And it shall pass at that time that I will search
                                Jerusalem with lamps,
              And punish the men who are settled in complacency
                               Who say in their hearts,  
                'The Lord will not do good, Nor will He do evil.' "

                               - Zephaniah 1:12

Complacency: 1: Self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by actual dangers or deficiencies.
That's me.
I am the one 'settled in complacency', saying exactly that.

I can talk big and act big, but am I really on Fire for my Savior?
do I really Try to honor Him, in All that I do? in All that I say? in All that I think?
do I truly Trust Him? with All that I am, have, and enjoy?

(and no, I do not normally read in Zephaniah. I barely knew it was a book in the Bible.)
