Good Manners – 1 Corinthians 15:33

1 Corinthians 15:33 – Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. We have a saying here in the South, “Would you kiss your mama with that mouth?”   This response to someone’s ugly words and filthy communication suggests that our mouths are polluted by what comes out.  Whether it is cussing or just words spoken […]

Everyday Blessing – Psalm 145:2

Psalm 145:2 – Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. There is no doubt that positivity is key to happiness.  However, if we simple focus on ourselves we are in danger of conceit.  Everyday we should take time to praise others starting with our Heavenly Father. […]

Life, Righteousness, And Honour – Proverbs 21:21

Proverbs 21:21 – He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. Many people throughout the centuries drew a distinction between the God of the Old Testament and the New Testament.  The notion has been that the God of the Old Testament was a vengeful Judge meting out punishment. While the God of […]

Save a Soul – James 4:11-12

James 4:11-12 – Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save […]

The Lord Unrestrained – 1 Samuel 14:6

1 Samuel 14:6 – And Jonathan said to the young man that bare his armour, Come, and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised: it may be that the Lord will work for us: for there is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few. One of the […]

Biblical Reflections: Joshua 1:8

Joshua 1:8 – This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. How often do you […]

Biblical Reflections: Ecclesiastes 1:3

Ecclesiastes 1:3 – What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? Do you ever wonder why you exist? Why were you born, and why are we here? Generally speaking, our existence is rather in insignificant in the expanse of the universe. If you believe humanist apologists, our purpose […]

Biblical Reflections: Romans 6:16

Romans 6:16 – Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? We all work for someone. We all have a master. Employees have managers. Students have teachers. Elected official have constituents. Even entrepreneurs […]

Biblical Reflections: 1Timothy 6:12

1 Timothy 6:12 – Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. Feel beat up from yesterday? Some days we just want to stay in the bed and pull the covers over our heads. While we might try to […]

Biblical Reflections: 1 Thessalonians 5:15

1 Thessalonians 5:15 – See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Being nice to everyone just seems unnatural. You know what I mean. Sometimes you just want to let your feelings rule and lash out in response to the […]
