Mrs. Laurice Kern, who attends St. James United Methodist Church, has been a long-time friend. Laurice worked for years as personal secretary to Dr. Paul Hubbert at AEA. She says the verses in Proverbs are her favorite verse in the Bible.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
Rebecca Gilliland, a lawyer in our Consumer Fraud Section, furnished a verse for this issue. She says she chose the passage set out below, not for the cliché description of love (and perennial wedding quote) that most read it as, but because of the lessons it gives for all aspects of life. Rebecca says this passage shows that love should be at the root of everything we do.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
Katy Morgan, who works as a Legal Secretary in our firms’ Personal Injury/Product Liability Section, furnished a verse this month. She says it’s her favorite daily bible verse and one that she says daily.
[i]n reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.” Ephesians 4:22-24
Cathy Hall, another long-time Beasley Allen employee, also furnished a verse. She says the verse reminds that her that God expects her light to be shining always, no matter the situation or circumstance that faces her. Cathy says since God saved her from darkness, she has an obligation to let her light shine. She has done that!
You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Ephesians 5:8
Frank Woodson, a lawyer in our Mass Torts Section, also furnished a verse for this issue. He says that in our business we need to have wisdom (Proverbs 10-11) as we deal with many companies seemingly run by men described in Proverbs 2:12-15
When wisdom enter your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you: understanding will keep you , to deliver you from the way of evil, from the men who speak perverse things, from those who leave the path of uprightness – to walk in the way of darkness: who rejoice in doing evil, and delight in the perversity of the wicked; whose ways are crooked, and who are devious in their paths. Proverbs 2:12-15
Rhon Jones, who heads up our Toxic Torts Section and who is leading the firm’s BP litigation, says the verse set out below is his favorite verse.
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. Colossians 3:23-24.
