Motivational Quote: "Happiness, happiness...the flavor is with you--with you alone, and you can make it as intoxicating as you please." --Joseph Conrad

Thought #1: Happiness can be affected by outside circumstances, but also our own mentality towards it.

Thought #2: The horror...the horror...I actually think Conrad was one of my favorite authors in Lit classes.

Proverbs 5:1 ->Wisdom can be acquired by listening to others, by learning from others.

Proverbs 5:15 ->Maintain your fidelity: this is evidence of wisdom and honor.

1 Samuel 25:3 ->Intelligence is of first importance.

1 Samuel 25:33 ->Discernment is useless without actions.

Micah 8:11 ->Do we want prophets with the word of the Lord? Or do we want prosperity on this earth?

1 Timothy 5:17 ->Preaching really is work. Also, those who lead the church should receive honor, not disdain (look back 2 chapters, see who should be leading the church. Disqualified individuals should not be leading)

1 Timothy 5:2 ->Ministers should view the women of their congregation as their own family: Protect, defend, view with purity!

Prayer: Lord God, give me strength today for following You.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
