Motivational Quote: "The brain is not, and cannot be, the sole or complete organ of thought and felling." -Antoinette Brown Blackwell

Thought #1: We are certainly more than just the sum of our parts---but it's not the biology, it's the soul!

Proverbs 3:7(NLT) ->Don't get overexcited by your education---or someone else's! Just because someone has a Ph.D. doesn't make them wise. Or right.

Proverbs 3:5(NLT) ->Only consider God's point of view. It's the only one that really matters.

1 Timothy 5:9-10 ->I see here the idea that the continual support that the church gives should only go to those who support, agree with, and practice what the church teaches. Generosity in all things, to all people, but the family of faith should only commit continued support to those within the family!

1 Timothy 5:11-12 ->A couple of things: 1.) Don't pounce on a person's tragedy to make them dependent on the church. Allow them to go back into life. 2.)There is a concurrent commitment, that the church will provide, and the supported one will do certain things. This commitment should not be taken lightly.

Prayer: Lord God, I pray I'll represent You and Your word well today. Be with our efforts as churches to work together for the gospel of Jesus Christ. And be with David Mitchell at FBC, since he's hurt and still plans to preach. Thank You for examples of stubbornly determined men of the Word.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
