HOW DOES ONE VOTE “THE BIBLE”-???

check this one out

By the Mighty Mumford

How does one vote the Bible,

Advancing GODLY revival……

Who has tried

GOD to be glorified,

Whose record versus promises verifiable?

Does one thing while speaking another,

does that really help a brother…….

Honestly look

what course this one took,

On anything, did they bother?

All men and women swear,

But…do actions show they care……?

Not what they’ve said

Said to turn your head,

Through research, their actions compare!

What Bible principles are,

Part of their vision so far……

What have they DONE

For the HOLY ONE,

For His BRIGHT MORNING STAR!

None are perfected yet,

Aim for the best you can get…….

Honesty

Blindness can’t see,

The blind don’t see their needs met!

folks who don’t bite and swear

in public, oft hide arrogance aired……

complicit with

demon and sith*,

pretending for whom they’ve cared!

“The moon is beautiful partly because we cannot reach it, (the sea is impressive because one can never be sure of crossing it safely. Even the pleasure one takes in a flower — and this is true even of a botanist who knows all there…

Family Talk Night Light for Couples

BEST FRIENDS

“A friend loves at all times.” Proverbs 17:17

There is a limit to the openness we have described. It can be used to create insecurity and gain power over your spouse. I (jcd) know of a handsome young company president who told his wife every day about the single women at the office who flirted with him. His candor was admirable, but by not also stressing his commitment to his wife, he was saying (consciously or not): “You’d better treat me right because there are plenty of women out there just waiting to get their hands on me.” His wife began to fret about how she would hang onto her husband.

He should have reflected on his real motives for alarming his wife. Did this kind of sharing nurture or injure his friendship with her? And she could have helped redirect the conversations by pointing out to her husband—in a calm, nonthreatening manner—how his words made her feel.

If you reveal your inner feelings honestly, with pure motives, and continually reaffirm your commitment to your marriage, your spouse will become your most treasured confidante, protector, adviser, and friend. After forty years of marriage, I can happily report that Shirley and I are best, intimate friends—in no small part because we’ve earned each other’s trust.

JUST BETWEEN US…

  • Have you shown me the “real” you?
  • How should we respond when our partner shares a weakness?
  • How can I be a better friend?

Father, thank You so much that my spouse and I are lifetime partners. But we want to always be best and dearest friends, too. Bless us with Your wisdom, grace, and power to this end, we pray. Amen.
