“For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those (A) for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and (B) close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned. Hebrews 6:7-8:

John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” How does one act when they have been set free? Have you ever been in a situation where someone had to set you free? Have you ever found a little animal entangled and it took you to set them free? Did you wonder will the little thing fly or walk again?
Truth alone will not set anyone free. That is what Jesus said! He said when you know the truth you will be free. So the real truth is you have to know (gain knowledge, understand and have the recognition of truth by personal experience) or truth moves all around you but you are not free.

brings______________? Does Resentment make you feel offended or aggrieved? Does Resentment give you a dose of bitterness? If so, watch out you may be in for some troubles according to Hebrews 12:15: “See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many..

I stand in my own circle and think, why in the world are they or me wasting time being of such character? Why?

This year in reading through the bible with a checking off of the scriptures in a booklet prepared by Gary I decided to read Max Lucado’s Devotional Bible. I was reading in Luke 10 when I came across Max Lucado’s insight into Mary and Martha. He says Mary had thoughts to think and Martha had things to do. Is that any of us? Guilty of picking up that broom and off you go! Yes!

I saw Jesus, today! I followed Him down dusty pathways, through steamy market places, across sandy dunes, over a raging sea and through waving wheat fields. Oh, I wasn’t the only one, but it felt as though it were just He and I.
And as we were walking toward a little town, Nain I think, is the name, here comes a funeral procession. A young man had suffered an UNTIMELY death leaving his poor, widowed mother all alone . Oh, the anguish on her face as she trudged alongside the bier. I looked at Jesus to see what He would do and I saw the compassion well up in His eyes and He went over and touched the bier. To my astonishment, the young man slowly sat up right in front of our whole crowd. We were filled with amazement as Jesus gave the young man back to his mother. No words can describe the joy on her face as she held her son in her arms. All I wanted to do was kiss His feet out of sheer reverence and adoration for such supernatural, compassionate work of this amazing Man.

Today, my friend, Wendy asked if I could recite the ten commandments. I have to admit it, I could not remember them all, to recite them to her. Lord, forgive me, I want to practice them now; so I can recite them, and apply
them to everyday life. I’d like to ask, how many of us can actually recite the ten commandments, with out cheating? (Exodus chapter 20: 1-17)
