Time for a Great Commercial! (Stay Smart)

How do we “stay smart”?  Saving some money and spending a night at a Holiday Inn Express is one way.  That might be an economical and intelligent decision.

But how about in life?  How do we get and stay smart in the things that really count?  The Bible is, of course, the textbook on smartness, for Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”  We are not naturally smart about spiritual things.  Although many people are highly intelligent in many areas, true brilliance comes from a relationship with the Lord.Screenshot 2015-12-23 08.07.37

What’s your I.Q.?  We can all get a whole lot smarter through a study of God’s Word.  And that will help us solve the complicated equation of . . . life!

Your thoughts?

Psalms of My Life (Psalm 128)

Psalm 128

A song of ascents.Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 7.07.14 AM

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
    who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
    within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
    around your table.
Yes, this will be the blessing
    for the man who fears the Lord.

May the Lord bless you from Zion;
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
6 May you live to see your children’s children—
    peace be on Israel.

"There are four of us grandkids -- with two more on the way!"

“There are four of us grandkids — with two more on the way!”
