Psalm 143:12 ->Also, David is possibly referring to enemies that are among God's people

Proverbs 10:2 ->Which is why the government and many huge industries are in such trouble.

Proverbs 10:12 ->Stirs up new strife, unnecessary conflict. It's not hatred to respond or to deal with evil.

Galatians 2:11 ->Correcting others can be for their benefit, and should be. Peter was condemned for his actions, he was wrong. Paul did right be correcting him.

1 Peter 1:5 ->Protected, not by our strength, nor our combined efforts, nor politics, but by God!

Thought #3: Elton Trueblood, one of the better preachers of the 20th Century, made it a habit to carry 3x5 index cards around for this purpose. He was able through this method to write a book a year, using only a few dedicated weeks to sort through the cards and connect the thoughts.

Thought #4: I'm going to work on this.
Moving toward the Horizon,
