Mat 5.6 +

Mat 5.6

“Blessed are they which do hunger & thirst after righteousness:

for they shall be filled.

…Whom shall I wed? A daughter of the King or a child of the world?

…choose well! Your choice is brief yet endless.”

– Andrew Blackwood

Are you exercising? Exercising patience – – – with your wife? No? Yes? Maybe a little? Give her more – be more forgiving with her shortcomings. “But she ought to ask ME before she spends that much.” I think I understand (we’ve lived frugally for yrs) but ask God for grace & love her. Never *write her off.* Never listen to satan recount her faults to you. Never, NEVER allow the word “divorce” to dwell in your mind. God can help you forgive her. God can renew your love for her – Let Him, O Let Him. – 5/15/22

Earthly goods are given to be used

not to be collected.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer


You will serve God or you will serve gold.

Make your contrary assertions ever so bold,

And claim the truth has not been told.

But the love of money is the root of all evil,

The love of gold leads directly to the devil.

Gold can be shaped in various known forms,

It can appear average or far from the norms,

One is pulled to the sciences, another to the arts,

One is lulled to amalgamations, one leaves things in parts,

One seeks gold directly, another seems it to “hate,”

But gold’s the one attraction of sinners, early or late, 

And – – – you will serve God or you will serve gold.

What one thing OF this world would you take to heaven with you, if you could? I hope there was a quick “Nothing” came to mind – if not out of your lips. Let me remind you & ME, our children are not OF this world; they were made for heaven. May God help you & me to do all in our power to take them with us to heaven. – May 2022

“Every man is called separately

& must follow alone.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

Schooling # 1 Some congregations have insisted their preacher be educated & may expect him to be a “Dr.” There are Doctors; there are “doctors” – & there are “doctors so-called.” [Excuse my designations if you don’t agree.] Some attend class hour after hour, week after week, yr after yr, study texts of repute, under men of academic excellence in solid institutions. If ever “Dr.” is deserved, these men earn it. God can use such men – IF they got their degree in His will or, OR are minding Him with it NOW. – 5/21/22

1Co 10.31

“Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,

do all to the glory of God.”

Are you looking at Graduation pics & wishing YOU had graduated? Rejoice if you’re a saint. You have the Greatest Teacher: 1.) GOD the Father – Deu 4.35-36 “God…out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee…” 2.) GOD the Son – Joh 7.14 “Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple & taught” 3.) GOD the Holy Ghost – Joh 14.26 “…Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things…” Death will be the most Grand Graduation of ALL. – 5/21/22

“…A husband should give of himself

that his wife might be a saint.”

– Andrew Blackwood
