Tom Methvin, the Managing Shareholder of our firm, gave us a verse for this issue. While Tom does a tremendous job in running our firm, which is no easy task, the best thing to be said about him is that he is a devoted husband, father and, more importantly, a man who loves and follows Jesus Christ in his daily walk.
for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
My very good friend, Dr. Terry Stallings, a noted urologist from Mobile, sent in one of his favorite verses for this issue. Currently, Terry is associated with the University of South Alabama in a teaching and supervising role.
Listen to counsel and receive instruction, That you may be wise in your latter days. There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the LORD’s counsel—that will stand.
Jim Rush, another good friend, also sent in a verse for this issue. Jim, who retired several years ago after working for many years with a local Architectural firm, is a member of St. James UMC. Jim says that many times throughout his life, he has done things that caused him to look weak, afraid and even discouraged. Jim says that when he finally realized that God would help him through difficult situations. He started to follow His commands. Jim says his life was immediately changed for the better.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Jennifer Aughtman, who is Director of Children’s Ministry at St. James UMC, also sent in a verse for this issue. Jennifer does an outstanding job at the church working with the youth.
Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.
Dr. Thomas H. Williams furnished a verse for this issue. Tim, a local dentist, says that in today’s busy culture and society, many people have a “want it my way” and “want it right now” attitude. He says that to allow our Creator to work His will in our lives can be very hard for us if we are not in close fellowship with God and have not surrendered our lives and future to Jesus Christ.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Jenna Day, a lawyer in our firm, says that the following verse regularly renews her mind and spirit.
Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none on earth that I desire besides You. My heart and my flesh fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. . . . it is good for me to draw near to God. . . .
Psalm 73:25-26, 28
Reid Strickland, another lawyer in our firm, supplied one of his favorite verses for this issue.
Not that I have already obtained all this or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
