My long-time friend Ray Warren sent in his favorite Bible verse for this issue. Ray says he especially likes the verse because it’s the ultimate prescription for eliminating worry in our lives.
Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Patrick J. Ballard, a Birmingham resident, furnished a verse for this issue. Pat is a very good lawyer and I appreciate him taking time to send in a verse.
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8 (NIV)
Dot Robinson, who works for the Montgomery County Bar Association, found a scripture in her daily Bible study that she wants to share. Dot says it’s appropriate for lawyers.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.
Proverbs 31:8-9 (NLT)
Tom Sexton, who is president of Pickwick Antiques, Inc., located in Montgomery, sent in the following verse.
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
My daughter Bee McCollum, who lives in Auburn with her husband Wes and daughter Maggie, sent in one of her favorite verses for this issue. Wes is a lawyer in a three-lawyer firm in Auburn and Maggie is a tenth grader at Auburn High School. Maggie is a very good student, making “Straight A’s”” this year. She is also a very good volleyball player. Bee and her family love the Lord and that’s the best thing I can say about anybody and especially about a family member.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
