KEEP IT CLOSE! Psalm 119:11

Greetings!
BlogFam,
Psalm 119:11 declares: 
I keep your word close, in my heart, so that I won’t sin against you.

This is a bold statement of commitment to the Word of God.  Friends, are you committed to the Word so that you will not sin?  It is definitely a question to consider.  I imagine that we are all committed to the Word for many different reasons, and one of those reasons might include the psalmists reason or maybe not. People may be committed to the Word because they are encouraged by it, they want to pattern their lives after the principles in it, they enjoy the stories in it, or maybe they appreciate the different types of literature included in it such as the narratives, wisdom, poetry, prophecy, and letters, People might keep it close also because they really do believe that it gives them life as itself is described as the "living" Word.

A Double Dose of 3:16...

Greetings!!!
BlogFam,
Today I am reflecting on two verses that sound a lot alike and have very similar references.  Now I am clear that in the original writings there was no chapter-verse organization.  So, to discover this striking similarity was quite uncanny, but then again, God is just kind of amazing like that.  I am grateful for the reminder of the promise in these verses.  The reminder of how I am the recipient of the love of God through His Son, Jesus Christ and how this love is experienced in variety of manifestations.

EVERYTHING belongs to God


Greetings!
BlogFam,
Here is our verse for today:
To you, Lord, belong greatness and power, honor, splendor, and majesty, because everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you.  Yours, Lord, is the kingship, and you are honored as head of all. [1 Chronicles 29:11]
 
Now, how do you feel about that part of the verse that says, “everything in heaven and on earth belongs to you?”  I will admit that it makes me rejoice at first glance!  I celebrate that everything belongs to God!

Until THAT Glorious Day...


Greetings!
BlogFam,
Although you’ve never seen him, you love him. Even though you don’t see him now, you trust him and so rejoice with a glorious joy that is too much for words.[1 Peter 1:8]
 
I recently attended a “Poor People’s Hearing” with Rev. William Barber and Rev. Liz Theoharis, the co-leaders of the Poor People’s Campaign.  Per the campaign,
 
“fifty years ago, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and many other leaders launched the Poor Peoples Campaign to tackle the pervasive problems of systemic racism, poverty, and militarism.

Honor EVERYONE. Really?

Greetings!
BlogFam,
Did you know that by virtue of reading the title of today's blog post that you memorized part of a Bible verse?  Congratulations! HONOR EVERYONEis part A of 1 Peter 2:17.  

To HONOR means: to regard with respect. So, essentially, this verse reads - Regard everyone with respect.  Respect. Everyone.  And just for fun, we might as well define everyone.  EVERYONE means: every person.  We are to regard every person with respect.

WHY?  I might as well jump to the WHY given the current social and political climate.
