Daily In The Word – Feb. 19 – The Reward Is Worth The Wait

Written on February 19, 2018 – 3:30 pm | by dave |

I have spoken many times about how much we hate to wait and how I (as Paul says) am ‘the worst of these’. We are so used to instant gratification in modern society that the very concept of not seeing instantaneous results bothers us to no end. But why? Everyone has their own reasons but […]

Catching up on the second lesson I missed this week. My verse selection was difficult this time because there were a few scriptures that resonated with me. I almost picked a different one but ultimately stuck with what I have. But before I explain what that is, I must give you the preface. There is […]

Happy Friday! I had a lot of trouble picking the topic to discuss from my reading as there was so much great stuff that appeared in my study today. I ultimately decided to discuss patience but in a way that is slightly different than you might expect. As I have said many times, I am […]

Today’s thoughts come from the Old Testament and in a book that I have honestly struggled to read. The book of Leviticus has some great information but much of it is mixed in with laws that we struggle to grasp in the modern world. It is actually from these items that I found something that […]

Now for the second thought from my lesson. I know that I have been talking a lot about verses from Proverbs, but so many great things can be found there. I have also talked about how I used the adage ‘If you lay down with dogs, you will wake up with fleas’ to explain to […]
