Yes We Can Do It!

“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13).  

A while back our Maltese hurt her back leg. She limped around for weeks, but it finally healed. During the healing period, she stopped jumping on things. After she healed she started jumping on the recliner, but more hesitant to jump on the couch. She lost most of her confidence. She would just about jump and then stop. She would struggle to get the courage to jump, and often would turn to look for help. 


The Bible and the Constitution

Ponder: Does Scripture still mean what it meant when it was written?

Scripture: “Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:6, NKJV).

 Associate Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent death has prompted vigorous discussion of his judicial philosophy known as originalism. Justice Scalia asked what the words of the Constitution meant to the people who wrote them. He held that the tenets of the Constitution must be applied faithfully, without regard to the personal feelings or opinions of the Justices. He understood that judges are not legislators; the judge’s job is to apply the law, not make it. 



“You are our epistles, written in our hearts, known and read of all men” (II Corinthians 3:2).

One of my friends was not in church Sunday. I meant to call her, but I was “too busy.” Looking back, I see that I was too busy doing things for me.
