    "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."

      • -Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian. United States Supreme Court, 1892

        Deut 4:5-9 See, I have taught you decrees and laws as the Lord my God commanded me, so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to take possession of it. Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.” What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him? And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today? Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.

        Deut 6:5-7 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

        • -One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning. J. R. LOWELL

          Jer 4:18-19 “Your own conduct and actions have brought this upon you. This is your punishment. How bitter it is! How it pierces to the heart!” Oh, my anguish, my anguish! I writhe in pain. Oh, the agony of my heart! . . .

          Rom 6:21-22 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.

          • Wise people learn from their mistakes.
            Those who are more wise learn from the mistakes of others.
            The most wise learn from the Bible. ANON

            Is 48:17-18 . . . "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”

            Deut 10:12-13 . . . what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?

            John 8:31-32 . . . Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

                • -Prejudice is a great time saver. You can form opinions without having to get the facts. E. B. WHITE

                  -Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest violence. HEBREW PROVERB


                  Prov 18:2 A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions.

                    • There is a cemetery in Indiana that has an old tombstone bearing this epitaph:

                      Pause,stranger,when you pass me by
                      As you are now,so once was I
                      As I am now,so you will be
                      So prepare for death and follow me

                      An unknown passerby read those works and underneath scratch this reply:

                      To follow you I'm not content
                      Until I know which way you went

                      Unknown

                      • “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” TEDDY ROOSEVELT

                        Heb 10:35-36 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

                              -It is easier to stay out than get out. MARK TWAIN

                              1 Thes 5:22 Avoid every kind of evil.
                              Prov 27:12 The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
                              John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
                              Gal 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
                              2 Pet 2:19 . . . a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.
