Linda Rush, who is the biggest Elvis Presley fan in the country, sent in her favorite Bible verse which is set out below. Linda also suggested that we should include 2 Chronicles 7:14 in each issue of the Report from now on. Linda pointed out that God wants to bless this nation, but we have to seek Him and His ways and allow Him to live through us. That is very true and I need to be reminded of that truth from time to time. Linda and her husband Jim attend St. James United Methodist Church and are my very good friends.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
James Lee Ford, Sr., a very good lawyer from Atlanta, Georgia, sent in the following verses. Jim says he learned to trust God very early in his legal career and that is definitely a good thing.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
Psalm 111:10 (NIV)
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Proverbs 1:7 (NIV)
James F. (Doc) Holliday, who is from Sebring, Florida, sent in his favorite verse. For those of us who sometimes are prone to be concerned and worry, this message explains very well that turning over our cares and concerns to our Heavenly Father is the only answer.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
Matthew 6:25-27 (NIV)
My good friend Joe Pate, who now serves as an associate Athletic Director at North Carolina State University, sent in his favorite Bible verse. Joe, who is originally from Dothan, coached football at the school before moving into administration. He is also one of the best turkey hunters in the country and a very good man.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
