Anne L. Marovich, who is Director of Alumni Relations at Cumberland School of Law, sent in some verses for this issue. Anne said she finds comfort and guidance in so many – she couldn’t really select a single favorite. As a result, Anne sent in some verses that she says are good for teenagers and for their peace, strength, growth and protection. I agree that these verses will make teenagers feel secure and confident and able to resist the many temptations that the teen years can pose. Incidentally, Anne says she enjoys reading the Report each month.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12
Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
The verse below came from Anne Graham Lotz. As I have written in prior issues, Anne does tremendous work in her ministry. She has been called the “best preacher in the family” by her father Billy Graham. Anne speaks around the world with the wisdom and authority of years spent studying God’s word. Leigh O’Dell, one of our lawyers who worked for Anne in Angel Ministries for several years, tells me that Anne’s father is correct!
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Gary Wilkerson, who is with World Challenge, Inc. and is the son of the late David Wilkerson, also furnished two verses for this issue. I am pretty sure many of our readers may recall the tremendous work done by David Wilkerson in New York City.
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
1 Cor. 15:10
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Dick Leggett, who serves as president of Prince Ministries, furnished a verse for this issue. As you may know, Derrick Prince, the founder of the organization, died in 2003. This ministry does a very good job of telling the good news of Jesus Christ.
A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion. He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever; His horn will be exalted with honor.
Psalm 112:5 & 9
Willa Carpenter, who serves as our firm’s Human Resource Liaison, supplied some timely verses this month. Willa says God leads her to encourage others on a daily basis. I can verify that she does this and is an inspiration to all of the folks at Beasley Allen.
Then Jesus said to them again, Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door to the sheep. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture(security and safety). The thief does not come but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly (overflowing, rich, and full). I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. I am the good shepherd: and I know my sheep, and am known by my own. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand. My Father (God) who has given them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
John 10: 7, 9-11, 14, 27-29
Chad Cook’s grandmother, Tessie Cook, who turned 92 recently, took the time to furnish a verse this month. Chad says she really loves it.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Corky Hawthorne, a Montgomery lawyer, sent in a verse for this issue. Corky and I have been very good friends for a long time. He is a devoted follower of – and advocate for – Jesus Christ. Corky not only talks-the-talk, but he walks-the-walk and his walk affects lots of folks in a positive manner.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
