After the financial seminar tonight, we set up the rooms for VBS. We found out the hard way that one of the AC units is not working. Brandon is coming out first thing in the morning to fix it. Hopefully he can fix it.
On the way home, Steve and I were listening to Family Life Today on our Christian radio station. It’s on every Sunday night and is always interesting. They said something tonight that really hit me, because I know some people for which this is very true:
Unresolved anger, whether in childhood or adulthood, will always result in isolation. And when people become isolated, they are more vulnerable to a single voice, including one that tells them to end their life. It tells them their life is not worth living.
I know at least 3 people that fit that category. Just something to think about.
VBS starts bright and too early tomorrow morning I need an extremely tired smiley face.
We have the dinner and financial seminar after the evening service tonight, and after that, we have to set up the rooms for VBS. So we will be out late. It’s fried chicken for dinner.
I was fixing to post parts of our pastor’s sermon this morning, but I got sidetracked. I looked up one of the scriptures, and started reading all the other scriptures around it. I do that sometimes….I start reading and forget what I was originally there for, because there are so many other neat things to read.
But I love Proverbs. I have thought about just posting some of my favorite Proverbs, but it will be a VERY long post. So here’s the ones I got sidetracked reading just now:
Prov 1:7…..7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Prov 2:1-22…..My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, 3 and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.
9 Then you will understand what is right and just and fair — every good path. 10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. 11 Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse, 13 who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, 14 who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, 15 whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.
16 It will save you also from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words, 17 who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God. 18 For her house leads down to death and her paths to the spirits of the dead. 19 None who go to her return or attain the paths of life.
20 Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. 21 For the upright will live in the land, and the blameless will remain in it; 22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it. NIV
