Allison Hunnicutt, who is Of Counsel in our firm’s Mass Torts Section, furnished a verse for this issue. Allison says when suffering occurs in her life and the lives of those she loves, she takes great comfort in these verses from 1 Peter that remind her that Christ suffered greatly and that suffering is a necessary part of life which actually brings us closer to Christ and therefore closer to God. Allison rededicated her life to Christ on Sunday, May 25, 2014, when she was baptized by immersion at Morningview Baptist Church of Montgomery, Ala.
Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 4:12-19
Betty Baggott sent in two verses this month. Betty, who now lives in Montgomery, does lots of speaking. Her husband Bob, who died much too early, was a very good Baptist preacher. Bob also served as Chaplain for the Auburn football team under Coach Pat Dye. Betty is in great demand as a motivational speaker and she stays very busy. Betty also gives the devotion at our firm once each month. Our employees really enjoy her visit in that capacity.
For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.
1 Cor. 3:14
My good friend, Chuck James, a Montgomery lawyer, sent in a timely verse this month.
And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
Evan Allen, a lawyer in our firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, also furnished two most meaningful verses.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.
1 Corinthians 16:13
