Satisfied – Ecclesiastes 5:10

Ecclesiastes 5:10 – He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity. When we are guided only by our flesh we find that there is nothing that can keep it satisfied.  In our materialistic society, there is no where we can go to […]

Wisdom and Discipline – James 1:5-6

James 1:5-6 – If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. Foolishness […]

Hear My Voice, O God – Psalm 64:1

Psalm 64:1 – Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Who among us has not experienced fear?  I do not mean an appropriate fear of the Lord.  I mean the kind of terror that hinders our witness of the Joy we should exhibit from the Lord.  […]

Unity – Psalm 133:1

Psalm 133:1 – Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! E pluribus unum.  One of the earliest mottos associated with the United States is often translated, Out of many one.  The fledgeling United States, in open rebellion against the most powerful earthly army, needed to stick together.  […]

A Prudent Man – Proverbs 14:15

Proverbs 14:15 – The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.

Destiny – Romans 8:29

Romans 8:29 – For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Do you believe in destiny?  I hope so.  The Bible teaches that all of God’s children are destined to be conformed to the likeness of […]

Established – 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 – Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,  Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. When you were a child, did you ever play a game where you […]

A Diligent Man – Proverbs 12:27

Proverbs 12:27 – The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious. The Apostle Paul compared life to a race, a race that we should run as to win it.  When we quit we cannot hope to finish the race much less win.  The […]

My Sheep – John 10:27-30

John 10:27-30 – My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck […]
