Be careful!

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

So important. Beware of people that leave fractured relationships in their wake! Divisions, strife… beware of people that do not seek peace and ensue it. A great reminder from Kim. “I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they…

Godly Sorrow

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

Thanks to Kim for this study… “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.” 2 Corinthians 7: 10 Godly Sorrow versus Worldly Sorrow! Godly sorrow is being TRULY SORRY for what we have done or said, …and if given the opportunity to do it all over again, we would NOT repeat it, …it is choosing to change our ways even when no one is looking!! As the Study Bible notes say,…

One of my favorite verses expounded by Kim… ¬†Thanks Kim for the SUPER reminder! “Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing Joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints.” 2 Corinthians 8: 2-4 Don’t you find that to be true?…

Great reminder from Kim! “He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.”Ephesians 4: 28 It is good for us to work! To do something useful with our hands! We were created in God’s image and He worked (created) for 6 days and then rested. Let us use Him as our example, create and rest!! We were not cursed…

Overflow or Outward Show???

By | Bible Studies | No Comments

Great note from Kim… “When the men were returning home after David had killed the Phillistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines and lutes. As they danced, they sang:‘Saul has slain his thousands,and David his tens of thousands.’ Saul was very angry; this refrain galled him. ‘They have credited David with tens of thousands,’ he thought, ‘but me with only thousands. What…

I have read several statements from friends and colleagues I respect very much.Their thoughts are well stated and, for the most part, insightful. None of them, however, seem to want to…
