A good friend from Tennessee, Harriett Thompson, sent in a most timely Bible verse for this issue. Harriett says this verse “covers just about everything and everyone in life” and that is so very true. All of us need to read it and then consider how it might apply in our lives.
If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Galatians 6:3
Ellen Royal, a Legal Secretary in our firm, furnished the following scriptures:
A Hymn of Faith
Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls — Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills. Habakkuk 3:17-19
Dr. Terry Stallings, who is a great doctor and even better man, furnished two verses this month. Terry has a servant’s heart and is an inspiration to all who know him.
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. Hebrews 6:4-8
But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1: 5-8
My friend Larry Minton, another Tennessee resident, sent in a verse that perhaps has a warning message for the United States. What do you think?
O Israel thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help. Hosea 13-9
The following verses were sent in by Eddy Williams, Director of Bands at Huntingdon College. He also is Interim Minister of Music at Taylor Road Baptist Church.
Yet those who wait on the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. Isiah 40:31 NASB
Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:11
Chris Baldwin, one of our law clerks, supplied two verses for this issue. He says they bring him comfort in knowing that “Jesus chose him.”
“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.” John 15:16 (NASB).
“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 (NASB).
Concerning the vineyard, God says, “I, the LORD, am its keeper; I water it every moment. So that no one will damage it, I guard it night and day.” Isaiah 27:3
