Not A Spark of Decency

Maurice Baring could relate to not a spark of decency in his time, he would surely find a place in my company, when he states, "Whoever one is, and wherever one is, one is always in the wrong if one is rude." Actions to avoid.

David surely experienced the same when he remarked, "Surely in vain I have guarded all that this man has in the wilderness so that nothing was missed of all that belonged to him, and he has returned me evil for good."

Adding insult to injury

He said he was sick, his plan designed to hoodwinked his father. "Send my sister to my house to make me some cakes," he said, "that I may get well." The father told his daughter, Amnon's sister to go to her brother and prepare some food for him.  Not knowing of his wicked plan, that Amnon was feigning sickness in order to accomplish his evil plan. She went to his house to do as she was asked and alas! She was raped and humiliated by her brother and adding insult to injury he chased her away from his home. (2 Samuel 13:1-21).

Take Heart

If a man die, shall he live again?( Job 14:14) This question was asked many years ago by Job, and today we are still asking the question. Many have become disheartened and worried as they look upon the times we live in. However we are reminded to take heart as Christ said. "In my Fathers house are many mansions, I go to prepare a place for you."Brevity and vanity of life.

Dealing With Depression

"When depression settles upon the soul, it is no evidence that God has changed. He is "the same yesterday, and today, and forever." ...if the clouds sweep over your soul, you must not feel that you are forsaken. Your faith must pierce the gloom. Your eye must be single, and your whole body shall be full of light. The riches of the grace of Christ must be kept before the mind. Treasure up the lessons that His love provides."
Ellen White

Ball Is in Your Court

"Some have no firmness of character. Their plans and purposes have no definite form and consistency. They are of but little practical use in the world. This weakness, indecision, and inefficiency should be overcome. There is in true Christian character an indomitableness that cannot be molded or subdued by adverse circumstances. We must have moral backbone, an integrity that cannot be flattered, bribed, or terrified."
