    Proverbs 17:27 A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered. All too often we as a people make 'knee-jerk' reactions. We get good exercise jumping to conclusions and letting our emotions dictate how we should act. Keeping ourselves even tempered...

    People talk about tithing a lot. Churches do it when attendance is down or when tithing is down or just because they need a new roof. (Nothing wrong with talking about tithing...) However, what many churches push is the 10% rule. However not everyone is in a financial position to give 10% of...

    According to Wikipedia A barrier. God had put a barrier around Job that the devil couldn't penetrate. How many times have we prayed for protection, but not a barrier? Imagine how different your day would be if you asked for a barrier of protection. For a hedge around your life, and...

    Sorry for missing last week y'all. Work, most people apply this to what they do for a living. Being an It specialist, or perhaps an artisan of some sort. that is not always the case. Sometimes its the work we do for the Lord that is the skill being talked about here. Take Joseph for...

    Thursday March 8th, 2012 - Choose

    Its a choice to follow the Lord. A choice we have to make every day. As Joshua states here, if serving the Lord isn't desirable to you, you do have the choice not to do it. Just remember, that to every choice there are consequences to be paid and in this case, the eternal consequences would be...

    Thursday March 1st, 2012 - Why Should I worry?

    Worry is bad for you. Period. Worrying about tomorrow, or what if I can't make the rent next week. Don't you have enough to worry about today? Why borrow trouble? God has you in the palm of his hand. (Or under his feathers in Psalm 91:4) Worry is counter productive to living for Christ...

    Abishai probably thought David was absolutely crazy when he stopped him from killing Saul. What he saw was "Look! the enemy of David, my King, lies before me! God must have put him here just for this moment. I can save my king and help give him his kingdom in a single blow." Yet David knew...

    Thursday February 16th, 2012 - Truth

    Truth, its what every person desires, most journalists when they start out are only looking for truth (if movies/cartoons/books are to be believed). However, truth doesn't always mean happiness or good things all the time. When your child/friend/spouse lies to you and then tells the truth, yes...

    People I know, Christians and none, are grumbling and whining and complaining about the election coming up this November. Sometimes they need a reminder that at the end, God is at the head of the army coming and like Joel talks about, who can endure that? Remember that the next time you...

    Three verses, three verses that together have the same message. Whatever you do, do it for God. Whether its flipping burgers, working nights, working days, washing dishes, or driving to work. Do it for God. its a heart condition and one that most people ignore. You have to do everything for God...

    Jesus was coming to heal the Centurion's servant and yet the Centurion realized the power of God. He recognized who Jesus was on faith alone. He knew that he was a sinful man and unworthy of Jesus and this surprised Jesus! (Well amazed him. ;) ) How often do we forget the faith that must...

    Reasoning together means dialogue between two or more parties. This is God calling to the Israelites and saying "Let's talk." How often does God have to do that with us? Sometimes we get so busy praying and asking and praising and worshiping that we forget God does talk to us. Maybe we need to...

    A guide, that means we act like a map to our neighbor (or anyone who meets us). We are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14), that means we have to guide those lost in darkness. Jesus came down and was the light of the world first, with His Death and Resurrection, that light was passed to us...

    Nehemiah Bible study (updated on Monday or Tuesday)

    Nehemiah chapter 1 Let’s get some background first. The book of Nehemiah is about the main character depicted in the story. Many people credit Ezra for the writing of Nehemiah as many people put the two books together previously. (Me, I like to think it was his faithful steward named Bob...

    Imagine this, you haven’t had the opportunity to read the Bible, much less hear it and when you do, you realize just how far outside of God’s will you are living… What else can you do but weep? You know that you have sinned and deserve the wrath that should fall upon yourself… Yet here is...

    I have to admit, when I first pulled up my VoTD for today, I was drawing a total blank. And while I know that happens, its not something I am used to. However, this led me to some serious introspection. If a verse coming to mind before was so easy, why was it so difficult today? At this...
