Bruce Hudgins, who works at the Retirement Systems of Alabama as a Senior Technical Support Analyst, says one of his favorite bible verses is one familiar to all of us. That verse is John 3:16-17.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17
Bruce has expressed his love and appreciation for these verses in the following prayer:
My Father, your abundant and extreme love for the world (us and everything You created in it) caused You, out of that true nature that You are (Love), to give Your most valued treasure – a treasure that nothing can match or attain the value of. You gave your only Son (Jesus) so that any of us in the world that were destined to destruction because of sin, who were not worthy in and of ourselves, and without hope in the world, could believe on You, Jesus, and receive and become the same value that You, Jesus, are to the Father and have the destiny (joint heirs) that you have. Because God, You my Father didn’t send the gift of Jesus my Lord to shame, place guilt on, or judge us here in the world, but to save us from the world and its ways that destined us for destruction. Thank you Father and my Lord Jesus for such a wonderful love for me and all who will believe! Thank you Holy Spirit for revealing and bringing us to such an Awesome and Almighty Love!
Rachel Boyd, a lawyer in our firm, sent in two verses for this issue. Rachel works in the Consumer Fraud & Commercial Litigation Section. She believes the first verse, Proverbs 31:8-9, really goes to the heart of Beasley Allen’s fundamental mission and that is to help those who need it most. As lawyers, Rachel says its our duty to speak for those who need us and defend their rights, ensuring that they receive justice. She says Proverbs 31: 8-9 is a verse that all lawyers should always keep in mind.
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Proverbs 31:8-9.
The second verse is from John and is special to Rachel. She says, “sometimes we all need a reminder to be more like Jesus; to let the joy and love of Jesus radiate from within.”
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34
Kwanzaa White, who does a tremendous job as a receptionist with the firm, sent in Proverbs 16:3 as a verse for this issue. She says “This is a short verse, but it’s meaning is so BIG. I read it often, and it helps me to realize that no matter how small we think we are contributing, we all have a great task and purpose. If we commit to doing God’s will and honoring HIM in all that we do, the reward will be great, and it makes everything we do meaningful.”
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. Proverbs 16:3King James Version (KJV)
