Psa 136. 1 +

Nov 29 – Psa 136.1 O give THANKS unto the LORD;

for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

 

“God is to human souls

what light is to the world.”

– Adam Clarke

 

Let your pre-thanksgiving Thankfulness be extended, be increased, be never ending. Thank the Lord for Sights you see, Smells you smell, Things you touch, Tastes you taste, & Sounds you hear. Thank God for a brain that works, legs that walk, hands that wave & a soul which recognizes there’s something beyond “the here & the now.” – 11/29/19

 

“God has many imitators of his power, independence, justice, etc

but few of his love, condescension & kindness.”

– Adam Clarke

 

BOOKS – ONE BOOK

Books are made of mere paper,

Grammatically smeared with ink.

They can be destroyed by fire,

Or by water, one might think.

But there is a Book whose words

Transcending cover and page

Will survive all catastrophe,

Outlasting the latest age.

“Ignorance of the Holy Scriptures is the cause of all evils.

If we go unarmed to battle how can we escape?

– Chrysostom

 

Man appears to be tripartite: body, mind & soul. Ten of millions of men are primarily concerned with the body. Millions of others are concerned about the mind. Only a few (by solemn comparison) have a high level of concern about the soul. It is the most lasting, the most valuable, yet receives the least attention. – 11/24/19

 

2Ti 2.15

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” > emphasis added <

 

It’s far better to be studious, with no desire to be “seen as educated,”

than to have a degree, but no drive for life-long scholarship. – 11/29/19

 

“Wheresoever ungodly songs are sung

there will the devils be gathered together.”

– Chrysostom
