Psalm 143:10 ->Teach me! Let this be the cry of my heart!

Proverbs 30:2 ->This does not mean that Agur really was stupid. Just that he thought so..."truth without any mixture of error" means an accurate record of what was said, not that the speaker was always right. (when quoting, not when the speaker/writer is presenting theology, as Paul does)

Proverbs 30:5 ->Every word!

Proverbs 30:6 ->Distinguish your words from God's. Clearly.

1 Peter 1:13 ->We see all of God's grace eventually, though not all is known now.

1 Peter 1:14 ->former lusts Do these things really attract us anymore? Or are we just kidding ourselves?

1 Peter 1:14 (NIV) ->Take a look at this. It's an imperative, not a passive. Do not conform yourself. You have to act!

Galatians 6:7 -> What are you sowing? In your life? In your family? In your church? Honesty? Peace? Harmony?

Quote (YAY! Quotes are back!) ->"Everyone is a potential winner. Some people are disguised as losers. Don't let their appearances fool you." Ken Blanchard

Thought #1: If you're in business, and you haven't read Blanchard's The Generosity Factor, I strongly encourage it. If I could require it, I would.

Thought #2: Some people have fooled themselves. Give them an effort, but they must make decisions to become who God has made them to be.

Prayer: Lord God, teach me your ways. I will look to your word, and strive to sow discipline and righteousness in my life. I will strive to see others as You have made them. Thank You for the grace I have seen, and for the grace I will see.

Prayer for the Poland team day 2: No report that they are there yet, but also no report that they aren't. Pray for traveling grace and a happy "Dzien dobry!" from Warsaw soon. Pray for the efforts to build relationships through sports.
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
