VerseD: Proverbs 3:7

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
Proverbs 3:7, ESV

Do not assume you know more than God or that He lacks understanding. Realize your need for His grace and forgiveness, that His way is right, and that your life is in His hands.

VerseD: Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6, ESV

In general, how you raise your children is how they will live their lives and raise their children.

What do you teach the next generation is important? Is God even a part of it?

VerseD: 2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16‭-‬17, ESV

God moved through men to write the Bible. Every word of it can be used for teaching, preaching, correcting sinful behavior, and growing closer to God.

This is why we want to read it regularly. (Daily, if possible!)

We are all teachers now

Running The Race

If you chose to impart wisdom from God’s Word onto others then you have, whether you know it or not or whether it was your intent or not, made yourself a teacher of God’s Word.

James 3:1says, “Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” Teachers, even bloggers and Facebook evangelists, are held to a higher standard than other believers because of the great influence teachers wield. Their works and their words carry a greater weight than those who are not teaching. If teachers fall, they can take many people with them; therefore, God will judge teachers of the Word according to the kind of impact they had on those they aspired to lead.

The Trouble with Sunsets (Examining the Flat Earth with no help from NASA)

I like this one, because real science is applied.

A Bit of Orange

I recently wrote an article for Creation Today about the different ways in which Young Earth Creationists (YEC’s) and Flat Earthers interpret the Bible. You can read it here:

In reply, I had a fellow named Scott imply that I had misunderstood and therefore misrepresented the perspective of Flat Earth believing Christians. During a jaunty bit of back and forth, I was reintroduced to some of the many arguments and evidences which are used in defense of the Flat Earth. One of these is an explanation for the sunset.

According to the flat earth model, the Earth is a essentially flat plane (as opposed to a ball) and the sun orbits around the north pole about 3,000 miles overhead (The sun is either 40 miles across or 300 miles across, depending on how you ask. Yeah, I know. There’s not one standard accepted flat earth model as of yet.)…

VerseD: Joshua 24:15

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15, ESV

We have a choice, every moment of every day, to serve God or reject Him.

How do you choose? Trust God’s Word and the counsel from His Church.

But you must choose.

VerseD: Philippians 1:3

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
Philippians 1:3, ESV

Do you love and pray for the Church? We may not always agree on everything, but it is our family. We should pray for each other with thanksgiving everyday.
