Helen Taylor, our firm’s Public Relations Coordinator, furnished a verse this month that she says is especially comforting to her in times of worry and stress. Helen points out that all too often we forget how easily our anxiety can be set aside, with the right word or gentle touch of a friend or loved one.
Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.
Proverbs 12:25 KJV
Liz Eiland, a lawyer with our firm, also furnished a verse for this issue. She pointed out that in the sixth chapter of Micah, the Israelites, because of their sin, are separated from God. Liz had this to say: “The people offer great sacrifices, both in quantity (thousands of rams and 10,000 rivers of olive oil) and quality (their firstborn children), all in effort to atone for their sins. However, there is only one sacrifice that the Lord desires from us – a complete change of heart, lifestyle, and disposition toward God and neighbor.” Liz says, like the Israelites, we often try to make up for our shortcomings with good deeds and charitable contributions, “but those are only worthwhile if they come from a place of transformation.”
What can we bring to the Lord? Should we bring him burnt offerings? Should we bow before God Most High with offerings of yearling calves? Should we offer him thousands of rams and ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Should we sacrifice our firstborn children to pay for our sins? No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:6-8
Aigner Kolom, a staff assistant in the Mass Torts Section, sent in a verse for this issue. She says that we never know how much time we have left on earth. Therefore, Aigner says “we have no time to be complacent with our love for God,” adding:
Now is the time to stand up for God and not worry about money or materialistic possessions. We shouldn’t think we can wait to show our Love for God tomorrow or on another day because we do not know if there will be a tomorrow on this Earth. Today could be our last day. The time to start is now. There is nothing of this human world that is worth losing your soul or the kingdom of heaven over.
What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? Matthew 16:26
