Scripture of the Week
“Therefore we do not loose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, not on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” ~~ 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Think About It
NO TIME FOR GOD ?
No time for God?
As if you said:
“No time for food, or love
Or sleep, or death.”
Take time for God
Or there is poverty of soul:
For when the messenger of death
Knocks on your door,
God‟s everlasting realms
Will find you bare and destitute.
No time for God?
Soon you will leave this earthly life
To take the way to distant shores:
Then when you see Him face to face –
Will He have time for you?
~~ Dieter Alten,
German preacher in Hamburg, Germany,
translated by Helga Blackstone (July 29, 2009)
Something to Smile About
On the Lighter Side
A young soldier left home to join the army. He told his girlfriend that he would write every day. After about six months, he received a letter from his girlfriend that she was marrying someone else. He wrote home to his family to find out whom she married. The family wrote back and told him. It was the mailman.
During his annual checkup, an old farmer told his doctor that he had never had an accident in his life. The doctor reminded the farmer that he treated him back in the spring after his bull had tossed him over the fence, and asked, “Don’t you consider that to be an accident?” “Not really,” the farmer replied. “That bull did it on purpose.”
