Settle Down in Your Captivity

Jeremiah 29:4-7 (KJB) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; 5 Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; 6 Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear ...

An Ostentatious Offering

Mark 12:41 (KJB) And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

Falling into the Ditch

Matthew 15:12-14 (KJB) Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind.
