2 Corinthians 8:1-13

These verses I have always been hesitant to say much about since I have lived for the last 57 years on the so called Lord’s money sometimes very lean and other times better but never with a large surplus.  So what am I to say?  I leave Paul to say what he said to the

2 Corinthians 5:11-21

I am wondering how I can even touch on the beautiful doctrine contained in these verses.  It begins with knowing the terror of the Lord. I am inclined to believe when Paul speaks of the Judgement Seat of Christ it is in two parts. The latter is the Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11-14). Jesus said,

2 Corinthians 4:1-7

These verses are very instructive to me.  Paul begins this chapter (chapter is not given until later) with not losing heart because of the ministry given to him.  It is easy for discouragement to set in and just want to quit.  In my sixty years there have been ups and downs in the ministry.In verse

2 Corinthians 1:12-24

Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians was very corrective.  There were things that were definitely wrong and they had to be told that they were wrong.  There seems to be a difference in this second letter which may according to some be the third letter.If I may bring up a verse in Acts 18:9-10 it

Proverbs 10:11-21

We have two principles again which is righteousness and foolishness.  These verses speak of both. Now here we have the mouth of the righteous being a well of life.  Yesterday I went to the jail to visit a man.  I spoke to him about Christ.  He accepted bringing him into eternity which would be to

Proverbs 8:22-36

I have a dilemma here in these verses. I would like to say it is Christ who in I Corinthians 1:24 is known as the power and wisdom of God. However if I do I would be lending credence to the ones who say that Christ is the highest of God’s creation.  Yet Christ was

Proverbs 7:19-27

I wrote previously about two women called Wisdom and Folly.  I believe they are not actually women but what I would call principles.  What we have in these verses are a story of how these principles could be displayed.  If Solomon knew if there were two people that fit this description we will never know.I

Proverbs 6:12-19

All of these verses have one application.  They begin with what is said to be a naughty person.  First of all it is his mouth that is mentioned.  When I came to Christ it was seen mostly in my mouth.  The heart is also mentioned.  Only the Spirit of God can tame a bad heart.​Farther

Proverbs 5:1-14

The book of Proverbs seems to refer to two women in a typical way.  They are wisdom and folly.  The good woman, Wisdom teaches in the way of true understanding while Folly seems to be presenting more against right understanding always pushing toward destruction rather than Heaven.  Folly is called in verse 2 a strange

Proverbs 3:1-8

The word “heart” is used twice and all is used once.  Whenever this little three letter word is used nothing can be added.  In the first time we have the four letter word keep.  If we have the right heart, we will keep His commands.  It will most likely add more days and they will
