The Word

Matthew 7. 5 – 6

“Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

“Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”

We choose to marry. God chooses to give (or not give) children.

We choose to (or not to) “bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph 6.4).

They choose to live (or not) for Jesus and Heaven.

Choices. Choices. Choices. Wonderful and Scary!

D   Duo of lovers, named Phillip and Heather,

I     In school decided to spend life together.

C   Causal love, then serious, then a wedding;

K   Kimberly, Sarah, Noah, made their hearts sing.

I   In baby carriage, Elijah’s “just the thing.”     

N   Now they serve Jesus in America, South,

S   Serve Him with their feet, their hands, not just their mouth.

O   On this day, June six, they celebrate their love.

N   Nod on them, Father, from Your great throne above.

Men become Men of Prayer by PRAYING.

God, help me and many others to enter the “closet,” close the door (re-close as needed), and learn to pray.
