Mat 5.39 +

Mat 5.39

“But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever

shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

It’s an insult to the intelligence of young people to give them the impression you have to cheapen the Gospel to make it understandable. The medical schools do not simplify their phraseology to please this set. The legal profession hasn’t changed its terminology”

 – Vance Havner

It’s so sad when a boy fails to turn into a man, instead turns weird. Regardless of his home it’s sad that he becomes a sodomite. It seems more sad when a boy enters the wickedness of perversion from a Christian home. One wonders why. What influences from mom? What lack of inspiration to be like dad? What books were read? What movies watched? What friend (even relative) was weird? What youth camp had a pervert unknown? We may not know but Watch Parents; Watch with both eyes. – 5/29/22

I went a friend’s house last night & looked at TV.

God convicted me with Psalm 119:37 ‘Turn away mine eye’s from beholding vanity’.”

You may have the “best of sight”

And yet not see

Because you lack light,

Light – which shows reality.

HOME SCHOOL. Teach your precious children to read God’s Words to them. That’s right – the Bible was written as much for your child as It was written for you. Show them their LETTERS in His Letters. Teach them consonants from the Bible. Let them learn their A E I O U’s from the most glorious Book on earth. God knows your child much better than you do, therefore ask Him where you should start your child reading His Word. Be patient (You didn’t learn in a day). Your patience will help them. – 5/30/22

“The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God & teaches us the way to be happy in this world & in the next.”

– John Jay

PASTOR’s WIFE – PLUS. Many-a-man has been successful, in part, due to his wife. She prayed for him. She prayed with him. She prayed for the church. She was modest both in her appearance & demeanor. She backed him as he disciplined their children. She reinforced his requirements on the modesty & activities of both their sons & daughters. She attended service (except when ill). She did not involve herself in church business unless her opinion was sought. She was a true Help Meet. – 5/30/22

Heb 1.1-2

“God, who at sundry times & in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son…”

Dear sister, is God calling you to the ministry of prayer? I’m glad for *your sake (it’s always an honor to be called into any phase of His service) & I’m glad for the *sake of the rest of us (oh, how our homes & our churches need more women to pray). Your calling is so a high calling – to be Heaven’s Ambassador. You’re being called to 1.) Bring ornery humans into the presence of the Holy God &  2.) Bring God into the presence of mere men. May your dying day find you faithful at this great task. – 5/31/22
