Remember Me When You Come into Your Kingdom

40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And JesusContinue reading “Remember Me When You Come into Your Kingdom”

Considering Proverbs 11:19

19 As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death. When considering ideas that deal with the “wicked” and the “righteous,” it’s good to remember the perfect righteousness of Jesus as a standard that we all fall short of.

Take no Thought for Your Life. Sufficient to the Day is the Evil Thereof.

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do theyContinue reading “Take no Thought for Your Life. Sufficient to the Day is the Evil Thereof.”

Considering Proverbs 11:18

18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

All In

I’ve spent my whole life chasing people that I’m never quite good enough for. This is going to be a cringe post but I don’t really care. I don’t think I should care anymore because all the time, care, and effort that goes into trying to be enough for people that are too good forContinue reading “All In”

Considering Proverbs 11:17

The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh. We can think of examples of this proverb within our society today. There are many cruel ideas and cruel people in the world who are quick to cast blame at others, falsely accuse others, and push forContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:17”
