God’s Requirements

Micah 6:8 (KJB) He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

What You Care About Matters

What You Care About Matters

Jude 22 (KJB) And of some have compassion, making a difference.

Many people in this world want to make a difference.

What separates genuinely godly and compassionate people apart from the cares of others is the caliber of concerns they have and the changes they desire to make.

Be Satisfied with Your Lot in Life

1 Timothy 6:6 (KJB) But godliness with contentment is great gain.

Godliness and contentment are two sides of the same spiritual coin.  Being more and more like God AND satisfied with one’s lot in life, whether in adverse circumstances or found living as a king with muck surrounding him on four sides, is possible.

Yes, lasting contentment from God can ooze into every crack and crevice in our lives. It can “stick to our ...

Foolish People Breed Foolishness

Proverbs 26:4 (KJB) Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.

A Spiritually Beautiful Woman

1 Timothy 2:9-10 (KJB)   In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;  10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

A Pig Will Always Be a Pig

Proverbs 11:22 (KJB)   As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.

A gold nose ring on a lowly pig does not make it more attractive.  It does nothing to make its appearance any more striking.

Pigs were sometimes fitted with a ring in ancient times for preventing them from rooting up the ground with their nose.  This ring was not something elaborate and special, ...
