Considering Proverbs 10:30

30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. When reading passages about “the righteous” and “the wicked,” it makes me thankful for the sacrifice of Jesus and the work He does in us. We are all “the wicked.” That’s why we need Him. Without Him, there is nothing butContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:30”

Considering Proverbs 10:27

27 The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. Sin is destructive.

If someone isContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:27”

You are the Salt of the Earth…Nevertheless, I Have Somewhat Against Thee.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. – Matthew 5:13 Christians should have the savor of Christ: to them who live it isContinue reading “You are the Salt of the Earth…Nevertheless, I Have Somewhat Against Thee.”

Considering Proverbs 10:26

26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him. Have you ever worked with someone that didn’t want to hold up their end?
