June 30 2009
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.
