* DON'T ... neglect praying. It is the breath of the soul. (Luke 18:1).
* DON’T ... neglect the Bible. It is the sword for conquest, your guiding light for dreary days (Revelation 1:3).
* DON'T... neglect the body. It is the capital on which you are to do business for the rest of your life (I Corinthians 6:19 -20).
* DON'T ... neglect the mind. It is the channel for reaching up to the very thoughts of God (Philippians 4:8).
* DON'T... neglect the laugh. Bible teaches that "A merry heart does good like a medicine" (Proverbs 17:22).
* DON'T ... neglect the reputation. It is gold with which you will meet the demands of the complex civilization (Matthew 5:14-15).
* DON'T ... neglect the influence. It will point others to the living God whom you serve. (Proverbs 11:6).
CHRISTIANS should aspire to do the will of GOD; nothing MORE, nothing LESS, nothing ELSE.
What we need in these hectic days is a Christian CALM plex,

ODELL and JOAN EUBANKS,
Joshua said, "Choose you this day whom you want to serve. As for me and. my house we will serve the Lord.'' (Joshua 24:15).
Choosing to follow and obey God is by far the right choice because like Paul wrote, "in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award... “ (IT Timothy 4:8).
The struggle to remain committed is a daily thing as Peter affirms in I Peter 5:8. James wrote, "Submit yourselves therefore to God ... (James 4:7).
We have choices to make, right ones or wrong ones. Remember Paul's encouraging words, "No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able." (I Corinthians 10:13).
Another testimony to God's greatness.
Do we THINK about it?
God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs ... for example:
The eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days.
Those of the canary in 14 days.
Those of the barnyard hen in 21 days.
Those of the mallard in 35 days.
The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days.
The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!).
God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant.
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs, For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.
The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
How wise the Lord is on all His works of creation!
God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains.
Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
Each orange has an even number of segments,
Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
Ever)' bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.
The waves of the sea roll in on shore 26 to the minute in all kinds of weather.
All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold and a hundred fold all even numbers.
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day, Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed.
The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Hint with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end,
The Bible: When you carry "the Bible" Satan has a headache, when you open it, he collapses and when he sees you reading it, he loses his strength, AND when you stand on the WORD of GOD, Satan can't hurt you!
Print it out...stick it on your fridge....make a copy, put it in your pocket, purse, etc. Read it daily.
AN EVENING PRAYER
If I have wounded any soul today, If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way, GOOD LORD, FORGIVE!
If I have uttered idle words or vain. If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I my self should suffer through the strain- GOOD LORD, FORGIVE!
If I have craved for joys that are not mine, If I have let my wayward heart repine, Dwelling on things of earth, not things divine- GOOD LORD, FORGIVE!
If I have been perverse, or hard, or cold, If I have longed for shelter in thy fold,
When thou has given me some part to hold- GOOD LORD, FORGIVE! Forgive the sins I have confessed to thee, Forgive the secret sins I do not see, That which I know not, Father, teach Thou me- HELP ME TO LIVE.
"And Enoch walked with God, and he was not for God took him"
1) WALK in a manner worthy of your calling as a Christian (Ephesians 4:1).
2) WALK in love by making Mark 12:30-31 your standard (Ephesians 5:2).
3) WALK as children of light by "walking in truth" (2 John 4; Ephesians 5:8).
4) WALK circumspectly, cautiously looking all around (Ephesians 5:15).
5) WALK in good works, making serving others a way of life (Ephesians 2:10).
6) WALK differently, "not as the rest of the Gentiles walk" (Ephesians 4:17).
7) WALK in a way that's unlike that of "sons of disobedience" (Ephesians 2:2).
It's obvious that "walk" refers to tire way we live life. It covers every aspect of it. We must not fail to get the point across that salvation involves a commitment to righteous living (Romans 6:4). Baptism is not the conclusion, it's the beginning. The path to heavenly realms not only requires WALKING but WALKING God's way. A person WALKING according to these thoughts in Ephesians would definitely be WALKING WITH GOD" as Enoch did.
If you talk about your troubles and tell them o’er and o'er, The world will think you like them and give you more and more!
Things you cannot do -
1) You cannot live wrong and die right.
2) You cannot sow to the flesh and reap spiritual things.
3) You cannot have fellowship with the unfruitful of darkness and have fellowship with God or you cannot think wrong and live right.
4) You cannot be a friend of the world and a friend of God at the same time.
5) You cannot do the devil's work and get God’s blessings.
