From the Inside Out

Romans 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

Let’s take a listen to this song (and sing along if you like) and then see how it lines up with Scripture. I hope you are blessed by today’s verses and song. Continue reading

Counsel of the ungodly

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” — Psalm 1:1-2

Then before you know it whomever you are commiserating with starts to give you advice on how you can “stick it to” someone.
