Proverbs 4:16 ->The wicked are not satisfied to destroy only themselves.

Proverbs 4:18 ->Our obedience sometimes seems dark and shadowy, but it brightens as we walk longer. It is a sunrise, day is coming!

Revelation 9:6 ->evidence here that death is allowed or denied at the will of God, not man.

Revelation 9:5 and Revelation 9:15 ->establishment of a warning time, long enough, yet fixed.

Galatians 1:6 ->Paul does not do anything to "happy up" his readers or break the ice or use any rhetorical or literary devices before he his straight at the point. Don't assume you always have to go around to get to your point. Hit it direct.

1 Peter 1:1 ->Peter is writing to the same area Paul wrote Galatians for.

Quote: "Managers and executives are not necessarily leaders. The real leaders in an organization may not have titles on their doors." -Phillip B. Crosby

Thought #1 ->Many organizations strive to force people to accept leadership from titles, rather than find leaders and force titles on them!

Thought #2 -> Wise managers and executives connect to real leaders.

Thought #3 ->Yet this post is true of the business world, and the Christian world, we'll spend fortunes on the people with titles, and next to nothing on the 'ordinary' people. Encourage, train, develop all through the organization, you don't know who is making the real impacts!
Moving toward the Horizon,

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…
