Psalm 101 “1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing. 2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me?

I encourage you to read Romans 5:1-8. Verse 8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” The word commendeth means shows, proves, or exhibits. God proved His love, showed His love, exhibited His love; by Jesus dying for us when we were unlovely, unworthy, ungodly sinners.

Read John 8:3-11. In Verse 11 Jesus says, “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” We all want mercy, compassion , kindness, & forgiveness; but so often we fail to give the measure we want in return. But we see that Jesus gave it, He still gives it today.

Proverbs 18:6-8 “6 A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes. 7 A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. 8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.” Have you ever been told something about someone that you can’t get out of your mind?

Proverbs 8:12-21 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice, granting an inheritance to those who love me, and filling their treasuries.” I’ve been trying to help someone see that God has riches in store for us, and bounteous blessings and provisions for us, w ...

I don’t know about you but for me, sometimes it’s hard to find quiet time for God. I’ve had my morning alarm set for 5 am for the past 9 years for personal bible study, but it’s harder than ever to get up because I’m staying up later. Now, why do you suppose?

Arriving at the gymnasium with a friend, they noticed that the parking lot was full. The friend suggested that Jordan park his car in an empty spot reserved for those with handicaps.
