In Search of Contentment, Pt. 6

Continuing the thought of things that can only come from Jesus: The Present of Today.  One clever thinker got it right: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift––that is why it is called the present.”  Proverbs 27:1 teaches: Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day mayContinue reading “In Search of Contentment, Pt. 6”

True Friendships

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.  Proverbs 18:24 Good friends are hard to come by.  I mean, friends that know your thoughts and can even anticipate your next words and actions.   I have heard it said that you will probably have onlyContinue reading “True Friendships”

Screen Suggestions for Students Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

I Can’t Wait

I Can’t Wait!

Time And Growth

Time And Growth Recently I read about an incident that occurred back in 2004.  A fight broke out among the residents of a nursing home in their dining hall.  One man was playing with the lettuce in the serving line with his bare hands.  From that a fight ensued.  A 62-year-old and an 86-year-old startedContinue reading “Time And Growth”

A Godly Mothers Care

A Godly Mothers Care Thank the Lord for every mother who has fulfilled her God-ordained role to nurture, cherish, and guide her children.  Mothers have the greatest influence on the next generation and an underestimated impact on society as a whole.  One person accurately said: “The hand who rocks the cradle rules the world.”  MothersContinue reading “A Godly Mothers Care”

“Prayer” in Psalms

Sometimes it is found in the chapter heading.  At other times it is in the text of the psalm.  As youContinue reading ““Prayer” in Psalms”

“Readers are Leaders” The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.  2 Timothy 4:13 “Readers are Leaders” It is a thoughtful statement.  As learned as Paul was, he continued to read the Bible (Parchments) and books.  This is a good example forContinue reading “Readers Are Leaders”
