John Schmidt, Senior Pastor at CenterPoint Fellowship Church in Montgomery, sent in a passage this month he says means a great deal to him. John says he likes this verse because it reminds him that talk is cheap. He is correct in that true love involves action not just emotion. John says he wants to practice authentic faith and demonstrate his love for God and for others through his actions as well as his words.
Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:18 (NLT)
Rachel Youngblood, one of our firm’s employees, says 1 Thessalonians 5:25 is directed to Christ’s church. As Christians, she says we are to pray for each other and we are to lift up each other to our Heavenly Father. Rachel says, this is not only an instruction, but also an encouragement to know that her Brothers and Sisters in Christ are praying for her.
Brothers and Sisters, Pray for us. 1 Thessalonians 5:25
Aigner Kolom, a lawyer in our firm, furnished a verse for this issue. Aigner says this scripture reminds her of that which is most important in her life.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33
Brittany Scott, another lawyer in our firm, also sent in a verse this month. She says this verse is a very powerful reminder that no matter how much worldly security we have, we must rely on God each day.
Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God. Proverbs 30:8-9
Laurie Weldon, a Legal Assistant in our firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, says that a passage in Ruth is one of her favorites. Laurie says this passage is one of my favorite passages in that it speaks to the meaning of loyalty. Laurie says loyalty is a necessary ingredient in her life. Laurie also asked us to include the following verse for a very special reason. Her step-father died recently and is now is in heaven.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
My friend, Mitchell Dubina, a well respected Montgomery businessman, sent in the following verse for this issue:
This is what the Lord says to you: Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15
Roger Smith, a lawyer in our Mass Torts Section, furnished words from a hymn that he says he sings daily as an expression of praise to God. While this is not a verse in the Bible, it’s recommended for even those who can’t sing very well.
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
I really appreciate folks sending in some of their favorite Bible verses each month. We try to use as many as we can. But even if not used, I can assure you they are read.
