July 14 2009

Psalm 143:9 ->God, you are my refuge! Not this house, not this nation, but You!

Proverbs 14:1(HCSB) ->Do you build your home? Or destroy it?

Proverbs 14:2(HCSB) ->Integrity is about your relationship with God more than with man.

Proverbs 14:10(HCSB) ->Empathy is good, but you don't really know what someone else is dealing with. You can still care, though.

Proverbs 14:15(HCSB) ->A verse about email forwarding!

Proverbs 14:28(HCSB) ->Don't short the King of His splendor!

Proverbs 14:34(HCSB) ->Especially God's people.

James 1:14 ->Your sin is from your own lusts and flesh. Take responsibility for it. And take control.

James 1:21 ->You are to put aside the wickedness you had before you came to Christ. Not continue to feed it to make you relevant.

1 Peter 1:25 ->The Word is what lasts.

Quote: "Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." -James Baldwin

Thought #1: No, he's not related to Stephen, Alec, or any of those Baldwins.

Thought #2: Actions matter.

Word jumble of the day: "We enjoy going to church at the church with the church because we're part of the church." Yep, because in the English language, church can be appropriately used in each of those senses. Lovely thing, isn't it? As Dr. Steeger once said, "Words don't have meanings, meanings have words," to show that sometimes you have overlap. Multiple meanings are attached to the word church as to many other words. Do you want to fight over those meanings or just leave it alone?
