Understanding – Luke 24:45

Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures – Luke 24:45 Meditation: Do you understand everything? I hope you are humble enough to say emphatically, No! However, the Bible teaches many lessons on the importance of understanding. Without it, even the most capable are blinded. Proverbs 13:15 says, “Good understanding giveth favour: […]

A Way To Escape – 1 Corinthians 10:13

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13 Meditation:  Temptations […]

Happy – 2 Chronicles 9:7

​2 Chronicles 9:7 – Happy are thy men, and happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and hear thy wisdom. Are you happy?   More than happy, are you joyful?  If so, praise GOD!  If not, then why aren’t you happy and full of joy?  I imagine there may be many reasons. […]

Ruling Your Spirit – Proverbs 25:28

Proverbs 25:28 – He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. Shakespeare once wrote, “Discretion is the better part of valor.”   I wonder if he was thinking of this verse from Proverbs when he penned this line from Henry IV.  Either way, this […]

The Way Of Escape – 1 Corinthians 10:13

1 Corinthians 10:13 – No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. Years ago I heard a sermon […]

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 […]

A Prudent Man – Proverbs 14:15

Proverbs 14:15 – The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going. How many of us believe lies?  I know.  It is an uncomfortable question.  Most of us at some time or another have fallen for the machinations of someone out to deceive.  The only thing that keeps us from […]

Hear The Word Of The Lord – Hosea 4:1

Hosea 4:1 – Hear the word of the Lord , ye children of Israel: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. When I was a boy, my father tried to teach me how to listen. One […]

Biblical Reflections: Proverbs 13:1

Proverbs 13:1 – A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke. Few things are more hurtful for a parent than a disobedient child. A rebellious child is like a curse, a trial, and an embarrassment. When we see misbehaving children, we wonder about the parents even if we know they […]

Biblical Reflections: Proverbs 3:5-6

Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. This slogan for the United Negro College Fund once filled the airways echoing in the mind of America. […]
