Considering Proverbs 11:24

There is that scatterth, and yet increaseth: and there is that whitholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. The more we give, the greater the increase. The more we withhold for ourselves, the greater the poverty. It might seem like keeping good things to ourselves will make us rich because giving awayContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:24”

It’s Hard to Not Let Them Consume You.

It’s hard to live among the godless. It’s hard to accept that such a person exists. There are people who really do not care about anyone or anything unless it benefits them in some way.

Considering Proverbs 11:22

As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion. An article of golden jewelry is beautiful until it is placed in the snout of a pig.

These Things Saith He – Overcoming Sardis

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for IContinue reading “These Things Saith He – Overcoming Sardis”

Don’t Cast Your Pearls Before Swine

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. – Matthew 7:6 Jesus made this statement after those He made concerning judgment. It seems connected. If the judgements that we make are correct and ofContinue reading “Don’t Cast Your Pearls Before Swine”
