  • Occupy

    -If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. C. S. LEWIS

    Col 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
    Luke 19:13 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

    "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21

    • Great endeavors

      -God is the silent partner in all great endeavors. ABRAHAM LINCOLN

      Col 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
      2 Cor 8:11 Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means.

      • Misplaced trust

        -However much we may distrust men's sincerity, we always believe they speak to us more sincerely than to others. LA ROCHEFOUCAULD

        Rom 16:18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.
        Prov 29:5 Whoever flatters his neighbor is spreading a net for his feet.
        Prov 26:28 A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.
        Prov 22:3 A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
        Matt 7:17-20 “Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”

        • Houses and Homes

          -People build houses. God builds homes. UNK
          -The beauty of the house is order; the blessing of the house is contentment; the glory of the house is hospitality; the crown of the house is godliness. UNK
          -When home is ruled according to God's word, angels might be asked to stay with us, and they would not find themselves out of their element. C. H. SPURGEON

          Josh 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
          Ps 127:1 Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
          Matt 7:24-25 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”
          Luke 11:17 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: "Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall."

          • The Cross

            -The cross of Christ, on which he was extended, points, in the length of it, to heaven and earth, reconciling them together; and in the breadth of it, to former and following ages, as being equally salvation to both. S. RUTHERFORD

            Eph 2:13-16 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.
            Col 1:19-22 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation--

            • Sweeping statements

              I can't think of a Bible verse to go with this one, other than the merry heart one (Prov 17:22), but this quote strikes my funny bone. What a card he was!

              • Godly mothers

                -No man is poor who has had a Godly mother. ABRAHAM LINCOLN

                Prov 31:26-29 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."

                • Hope

                  -Hope springs eternal in the human breast . . . ALEXANDER POPE

                  Titus 2:12-14 It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

                  • Only what’s done for Christ will last

                    - . . . Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last. . . . C. T. STUDD

                    1 Cor 3:11-15 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
                    1 Tim 3:13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.
                    Heb 6:10-11 God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure.
                    Matt 6:19-21 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
                    1 Cor 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
                    2 Thes 1:11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
                    2 Thes 3:13 And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.
                    Heb 13:20-21 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

                      • Treasures in Heaven

                        -He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. JIM ELLIOT

                        Matt 6:19-21 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
                        Matt 19:21 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
                        Luke 12:33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
                        Phil 4:17 Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account.
                        1 Tim 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

                        • God's Forgiveness

                          -If God were not willing to forgive sin, Heaven would be empty. German Proverb

                          Rom 3:10 As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one."
                          Rom 3:22-24 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

                          • The Bible and questions about life

                            -The Bible is the one Book to which any thoughtful man may go with any honest question of life or destiny and find the answer of God by honest searching. JOHN RUSKIN

                            2 Tim 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
                            Prov 2:1-11 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair--every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
                            Prov 8:10-11 Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

                              • The REAL reason some reject the Bible

                                -Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself but because it contradicts them. REV. E. PAUL HOVEY

                                Matt 12:30 “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.”
                                John 7:7 "The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil."
                                John 3:18-20 "Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."
                                Deut 32:29 If only they were wise and would understand this and discern what their end will be!
