Philippians 2:3-4, “3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” NIV Friday, my daughter and I had some errands to run after I picked her up from school. I haven’t been feeling well this week. (Which I why …

“A man’s pride will bring him low, but a humble spirit will obtain honor.” ~ Proverbs 29:23 NAS Once again, the word “humble” jumped out at me in my Scripture reading. I think that’s part of the reason to have a word for the year. It gives you something in particular to study, meditate, and pay attention to. Pride is …

Proverbs 28:26, “He who trusts his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.” (NAS) My title sounds like a joke gone wrong, doesn’t it? Your heart, your gut and the Holy Spirit walk into a bar… LOL This section in Proverbs in the New American Standard Bible has this written before the chapter starts: …

Proverbs 26:28 NAS, “A lying tongue hates those it crushes, And a flattering mouth works ruin.” Sometimes the Bible can really seem harsh. However, the truth does hurt on occasion.  I very much dislike lying. I almost hate it. Mostly because I have been lied to so much in my life.  I would much rather someone tell the truth, hurt …

“Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word spoken in right circumstances.”  Proverbs 25:11 Have you ever had one of those moments where you open your mouth and inserted your foot? I know I have.  There are a few situations that happen in our lives when I think people just shouldn’t talk at all. 1. When someone …

Proverbs 24: 3-4, “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established, and by knowledge the rooms are filled with precious and pleasant riches.”  I came across this Proverb a few months ago and turned it into a prayer for myself. Then, after my friend’s husband passed away, I wrote out some prayer cards for her and …

Proverbs 23:17, “Do not let your heart envy sinners, but live in the fear of the LORD always.” NAS I decided to start a week of talking about Proverbs. I have been reading through Proverbs each month for awhile, in different Bible translations. This month I’m reading the New American Standard. It has been interesting to see the slight differences …

“The reward of humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, honor, and life.” Proverbs 22:4 NAS If you remember, I wrote about my word for 2016. It’s humble, or humility. Well, in my daily Proverbs reading, I came across the Scripture posted above. This is not a “if you, God will” prosperity Scripture. I believe it’s a promise. God …

2 Timothy 2:22 HCSB, “Flee from youthful passions, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.” This has been a very tiring week for me. Sunday evening, my outside dogs started barking at a tree. I took a flashlight and looked, but never saw anything. Their barking has continued all week. All …

“Indeed, we have all received grace after grace from His fullness, for the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:16-17 Grace is defined as “simple elegance; the free and unmerited favor of God”. Free and unmerited favor of God. Not jumping through hoops for God’s favor. Not trying to do everything right every …
