        • Archaeology Corroborates the Bible

          . . . no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a single biblical reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible. And, by the same token, proper evaluation of biblical descriptions has often led to amazing discoveries. NELSON GLUECK, archaeologist

          As quoted in: Henry M. Morris with Henry M. Morris III, Many Infallible Proofs: Practical and Useful Evidences for the Christian Faith (Green Forest, AR: Master Books, 1996) 55-57.

                Prov 3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

                There is no limit to the good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit. [variously attributed; possibly Ronald Reagan or General George C. Marshall]

                Prov 27:2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips.

                          2 Thes 3:13 And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.

                          • Leadership

                            -If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. JOHN QUINCY ADAMS

                            Ex 18:20-21 "Teach them the decrees and laws, and show them the way to live and the duties they are to perform. But select capable men from all the people--men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain--and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens."
                            2 Chr 1:10 "Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"
                            Prov 10:7 The memory of the righteous will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.
                            Prov 29:2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.
                            Eccl 8:9 . . . There is a time when a man lords it over others to his own hurt.
                            2 Sam 23:3-4 " . . . 'When one rules over men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth.'"

                            • Discernment

                              -Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right. CHARLES H. SPURGEON

                              Ps 119:125 I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.
                              Prov 3:21-24 My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you . . .Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
                              Prov 8:8-9 All the words of my mouth are just; none of them is crooked or perverse. To the discerning all of them are right; they are faultless to those who have knowledge.
                              Heb 5:14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
                              1 John 3:7-10 Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.
                              Lam 3:40 Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD.
                              1 John 4:1-4 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
                              2 Cor 11:13-15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
                              James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
                              Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
                              1 Thes 5:21-22 Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.
                              Acts 17:11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
                              Rom 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

                                -Those who live in the Lord never see each other for the last time. GERMAN PROVERB
                                -Christ has made of death a narrow, starlit strip between the companionships of yesterday and the reunions of tomorrow. W. J. BRYAN
                                -Death to the Christian is the funeral of all his sorrows and evils, and the resurrection of all his joys. J. H. AUGHEY

                                Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
                                2 Cor 4:17-18 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
                                Ps 16:11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
