+ You can find answers to life's questions (I Peter 3:15). “Be ready to give a defense to everyone who ask you a reason for the hope that is in you.”
+ God commands it (2 Timothy 2:15; John 5:39; I Peter 2:2; 3:18). “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth.”
+ Ignorance is not excused (Acts 17:30). “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlook, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”
+ Ignorance destroys (Hosea 4:6). “My people are destroyed for lack of know- ledge. Because you have rejected knowledge.”
+ Ignorance causes church problems (Romans 16:17-18). “Those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned.”
+ You can make good decisions (Psalm 119:105). “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” + It keeps us from sin (Psalm 119:11). “Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”

A nervous young man bit his fingernails and walked to and fro in the coach of a train. A preacher said to him, “I know that you are in trouble, and I should like to help you.” The young man said that he had left home against his parents' will, and that now he would like to return home. He said that he had written to his parents two weeks ago, but that he had not received an answer from them. Later he wrote his mother that if it would be permissible for him to return home, he would like for her to tie a white rag on the old crab apple tree in the front yard so that he could see it while the train passed in front of the house. The boy wondered whether the white rag would be there. The preacher said to him, “close your eyes, and I shall look to see whether the white rag is there.” After the train went around the curve, the preacher looked at the crab apple tree and said to the boy, “A white rag is tied to every limb.” Forgiveness (pardon) is the sweetest word in the English language. It is the sweetest word a condemned criminal can hear. “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds upon the heel that crushed it.” Dr. Roger Allen, Christian Parenting, August 1989
God is love, and love is God; yet each of us may share. His power dwells within us, to nurture and to care. We generate His energy by giving it away. So, love and live and freely give. . . . Give of yourself each day.
I see my Lord in the Bible whenever I chance to look. He is the theme of the Bible, the center and heart of the Book. He is the Rose of Sharon; He is the Lily fair. Whenever I open the Bible, the Lord of the Bible is there. He is the Book's beginning, gave to the earth its form. He is the ark of safety that bears the brunt of the storm. The burning bush in the desert, the budding of Aaron's rod, Whenever I open the Bible, I see the Son of God. He's the ram upon Mount Moriah, the ladder from earth to sky, The scarlet cord in the window, the serpent lifted high. The smitten Rock in the desert, the Shepherd with staff and crook. Whenever I open the Bible, I see my Lord in the Book. He is the seed of the woman, the Saviour virgin-born; He is the Son of David whom men rejected with scorn. His garments of grace and beauty the stately Aaron bedecked; Yet He is the Priest forever like unto Melchizedek. The Lord of eternal glory whom John the apostle saw, The light of Celestial City, the Lamb without spot or flaw. The Bridegroom coming at midnight for whom His people look. Whenever I open the Bible I see my Lord in the Book.
Cheerfulness is contiguous but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier. Angry management – when angry with someone, it helps to sit down and think about the problem. A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you died. A person that knows everything has a lot to learn.
