Luk 14.11 +

Luk 14.11

“For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased;

& he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

“…He hath given me rest by his sorrow

& life by his death.

– John Bunyan

If a friend posted a pic of you which caught you in an awkward, immodest pose ask them to remove it. If, in fact, YOU posted a pic of your body, your child’s body, your grandchild’s with too much “skin showing” please remove it. Yes, its fun to have family visit. No, in some cases they may not (Thank God, & thanks to our children & grands we do not fight this) honor you by dressing as you wish they would. But allow a reminder; YOU are in charge of the pics YOU post about their visit. – 7/12/22  

My wife was afraid of losing this world

& my children were given to the foolish delights of youth.”

– John Bunyan


He was different, strange, kind-a-odd.

Then one day he quietly slipped away

To be forever with His God.

Who will take the place of this ole guy

Not by the world “bought”? Thinking as he ought?

Will you renounce the world? Tell it good-bye?

SUICIDE  I beg you do NOT allow yourself to think of it. You will go to Hell. To commit suicide is the worst possible thing you can do – it is impossible for you to come back & ask God to forgive. AND, NO you can’t ask Him to forgive a sin you are GOING to do. satan lies. He may tell you “God understands.” No – God will give you the grace to out put-up with “whatever” until He allows you to die – in His time – in His way. You have not right to end your own life. STOP. Read your Bible & pray. – 7/18/22

“No man should be in public office

who can’t make more money in private life.”

– Thomas Dewey

Have Discipline to: (1 – 5)

1.) Not finish reading any joke which starts out, “A blond walked into a bar…” Stop. STOP!

2.) Lay down a book (no matter the hype) when you feel a Holy Check – don’t pick it up again.

3.) Stop the You-Tube, rented movie, or even “christian” film, when too much skin is showing.

4.) Not ask questions “she expects you to ask” when local Gossip calls. Find place to end call.

5.) Stop hearing favorite singer/preacher when humor gets too big, ring comes, clothing is bad. – 7/19/22

Psa 1.1

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,

nor standeth in the way of sinners nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

PRAY 1. (Is it safe to assume that you pray?) Have you ever asked the Lord to show you about what He’d have you pray? I expect that God expects us to be concerned about a sinner relative. He probably expects us to pray for pastor, Sun.Sch. teacher, etc. Have you wondered what else should be included in your praying? Have you prayed for your boss? Have you asked God to save your boss’s Boss? Have you wept as you prayed for the ornery guy/gal with whom you work? Is your Prayer List growing? – 7/19/22  

“To enter heaven

a man must take it with him.”
