The Word

Matthew 6. 27 – 28

“Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

“And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:”


“There is always in it [act of sin] an attitude of defiance, and

rejection of authority, and the decision to go ‘one’s own way.’”

– L D Wilcox, from his book, Profiles in Wesleyan Theology

Love is best

There is discipline in learning Languages and a measure of profit – restricted to earth.

There’s greater discipline in learning Love – it profits immeasurably on earth AND in eternity.

– eab, 3/10/11

Heart Portal


Guard now the portal to your heart;

Watch what you give entry here.

Unlike the doorway to your home

Which allows a guest to re-roam

Thoughts once in, tend to ne’er depart.


‘Membered or not they’re all still there

Filed, it seems by random mystery

Jumbled (to us) early or late

Events of childhood fixed by date

“Secular times” mixed up with prayer.

– eab, 5/28/15

Once saved, always saved?

“Once painted always painted” take that to the house painter.

“Once mowed always mowed” take that to the front lawn.

“Once trowel-able always trowel-able” take that to the concrete finisher.

“Once fireproof always fireproof” take that to the fire station.

“Once fertile always fertile” take that to garden.        

– eab, 2 / 16&19 /11

The Word

Proverbs 1. 26 – 27

“I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

“When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.”

“Sin is a want of conformity to the law of God

[as] blindness is a want of sight….”

Isaac Watts, from his book, Logic
