"See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil"- Ephesians 5:15-16
There is a song which has recently gained popularity by Josh Groban and Angie Stone titled Prayer. It begins with these words:
"I pray you'll be our eyes, And watch us where we go And help us to be wise In times when we don't know Let this be our prayer When we lose our way>> More

33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 Among the many things that Jesus taught in His sermon on the mount, He taught His disciples that His kingdom must have priority in their lives. From our earliest existence, many of us have heard similar words from parents and peers, "you need to go to church".

"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat"-Mark 6:31 Tuesday was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and there was a crispness in the air which reminded me of fall.

"Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him"-Matthew 2:2 The incarnation of the Son of God was one of the greatest events in the history of the universe.

" ... .Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her"-Luke 10:42
Today, our thoughts are centered around a special visit our Lord made to the home of some of His friends. It was the home of Mary and Martha. These were the two sisters of Lazarus, that same Lazarus that Jesus called forth from the tomb. It was Mary that washed His feet with her tears, w ...

"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers"-Acts 2:42 To begin something is one thing, but to be faithful to continue in it is another matter. While Baptism and a confession of our faith in Jesus Christ is a great act of faith, we know that this is just the beginning. We would not discourage those whose hearts have been stirred to follow Christ. But those who have enlisted in His army ...

TWO KINDS OF WISDOM "And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained ...
