THINGS FOR GOD

Shamgar had an ox goad;
     Rahab had a string.

Gideon had a trumpet;
     David had a sling.

Samson had a jawbone;
     Moses had a rod.

Dorcas had a needle;
     All were used for God.

TRUE TODAY ALSO:

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked way, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land" (2 Chron. 7:14).

"There is one thing to be said for ignorance - it sure causes a lot of interesting arguments!"

"There Always Will Be A God"

They cannot shell His Temple,
     Nor Dynamite His throne;

They cannot bomb His city,
     Nor rob Him of His own.

They cannot take Him captive,
     Nor strike Him deaf and blind,

Nor starve Him to surrender,
     Nor make Him change His mind.

They cannot cause Him to panic,
     Nor cut off His supplies.

They cannot take His kingdom,
     Nor hurt Him with their lies.

Though all the world be shattered,
     His truth remains the same,

His righteous laws still potent,
     And 'Father' still His name.

Though we face war and struggle,
     And feel their goad and rod,

We know above confusion
     There always will be God.

-- Albert Leonard Murray

"Apostasies come and will come. They come where the cause is popular, where an ease-loving and popularity-seeking spirit prevails, and always manifest themselves among those who avoid controversy or discussions. To suppress discussion is to deprive truth of all its vantage ground." -- David Lipscomb, 1930

PERSEVERANCE is one of the surest ways of overcoming a handicap, Charles H. Spurgeon once said: "By perseverance the snail reached the ark.

T. H. Huxley's remark is classic: "Blind faith is the unpardonable sin." It is true that faith can be blind. A fanatic is defined as "a fellow who redoubles his efforts after he forgets where he is going."

Wise Observations:

The tragedy of war is that it uses man's best to do man's worst. -- Henry Emerson Fosdick ... Real charity doesn't care if it's tax-deductible or not! -- Dan Bennett ...

A SLAVE

The most degrading of all slavery which human beings know is to fear the light and refuse to think, lest one should have to give up a dogma. There is one fatal man in our world and he is the unthinking one. If one cannot reason, he is a fool; and if he will not reason, he is a bigot; but if he dares not reason, he is a slave. -- Author Unknown

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. - Alexander Graham Bell
