Nancy L. Thompson, a very good a lawyer from Des Moines, Iowa, sent in her favorite Bible verse for consideration this month. Nancy, a staunch Democrat and faithful Christian, has the verse on her website. She seeks to make it the focus of her law practice and that is a very good thing. It would help all lawyers keep things in the proper perspective in the workplace.
Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves, for the rights of the destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
This verse is especially applicable to those of us representing persons who have been wronged and have a need for a lawyer to resolve a dispute. It’s good to know that Nancy makes the verse a focus in her work as a lawyer who helps folks who need help.
The following verses come from Samuel B. Casey, who is Executive Director and CEO of the Christian Legal Society, and are quite appropriate for these times.
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Isaiah 40:8 (New International Version)
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
My friend and “political buddy” from Montgomery, Joyce Spear, likes the following verse. This is certainly a comforting message for the perilous times in which we live and I appreciate Joyce letting us pass it on.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Finally, I am going to add two more verses that came to my mind as I was winding up this part of the Report.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
So they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
I really appreciate folks sending in their favorite verses each month. It makes me realize how important it is to not only read the Bible, but to know that God’s word is available and is actually at work in our daily activities. It is reassuring to know that we have a mighty God who speaks to us through His word!
