My Three Friends

“Make no friends with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go” (Pro. 22:24 KJV).

It’s true!  Anyone who pushes nearer to the Lord is your friend.  It was never more so than in this past week’s experience.  My health care carrier indicated I must trade off a long used prescription item for a new, less expensive one, and that meant obtaining paperwork from my doctor.  Thus begins the tale.


Now, That’s Profound

 Text: “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9 NASB).

I, jokingly, tell people that I once said something profound. I know it was profound because my friend told me so. During a discussion, at our monthly preacher’s breakfast, Rob looked across the table and said, “Roy, that is very profound!” Unfortunately neither of us, after so long a time, remembers what I said.


Something To Do

“It’s of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: Great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22, 23).

“Lord, lead me to make this a welcome day!”  The happiest people are busy, always with something to do or look forward to each new day of life.  Close brothers and sisters in our area live where each day’s weather is pretty much the same, normally 65 – 75 degrees, lots of sunshine, little rain which leave them desperate.
