Sunday’s Word – 01Jul12

 Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
 Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
 Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
 Righteousness will go before Him,
And shall make His footsteps our pathway.

Psalms 85: 10-13

Sunday’s Word — 27May12

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.  Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.  Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.

 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.  The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalms 34: 11-18

Sunday’s Word -25Mar12

Sunny flower

Blessed are  the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are  those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the  meek, for they  shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and  thirst  for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are  the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

Blessed are  the pure in heart, for  they shall see God.

Blessed are  the peacemakers, for  they shall be called  sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for  theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely  on my account.  Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for  so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12

Sunday’s Word – 26Feb12

A path for you

 

Hear,  my son, and accept my words,  that  the years of your life may be many. I have  taught you the way of wisdom;  I have led you in the paths of uprightness.When you walk,  your step will not be hampered, and  if you run, you will not stumble.   Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your  life.  Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil. Avoid it; do not go on it;  turn away from it and pass on. For they  cannot sleep unless they have done wrong; they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble.  For they eat the bread of  wickedness and drink the wine of violence.  But  the path of the righteous is like  the light of dawn, which shines  brighter and brighter until  full day.   The way of the wicked is like deep  darkness; they do not know over what they  stumble. 

Proverbs 4:10-19

Sunday’s Word

The LORD upholds all who fall,  and raises up all who  are bowed down. The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works. The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.

Psalms 145: 14-19
