The Bible is a wonderful book full of knowledge that God has given us so we all might have blessings, patience, and comfort. With that in mind, there are specific verses and passages that appeal to me personally. Last week we examined Numbers 13:30 and the idea of courage. This week let us notice the words of Psalm 25:15-22.
“And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it” (Numbers 13:30). This is one of my favorite passages in all of scripture. However, to truly appreciate it (and Caleb), you have to have some context.
“Don’t be a doormat” carries a negative connotation most times that it is said or heard. The meaning being, do not let people “walk all over you”. There seems to be a misconception that when you are accommodating and kind, you are in danger of becoming a dreaded doormat to someone.
Another Lads to Leaders convention has come and gone with great success from the Arnold church of Christ! Forty-two from our congregation shared the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Louisville, KY with 1700 Christians from multiple areas of our nation. Nineteen of our youth participated in this year’s events. These events included Speech, Song Leading, Songs of Praise, Bible Bowl, Centurion of Scripture, Good Samaritan, Second Language, Keepers, Mass Media, and Art Says It. It is truly a blessing to see our youth growing in their own knowledge of God’s word while also being able to learn from hundreds of other youth their age. This is a great program that is nurturing our church and instilling skills in our youth that they will use for the remainder of their walk with Christ.
Dear Arnold Brethren,
It would be an understatement for me to say that I am excited to be with you for your Gospel Meeting! I am like Paul, as he wrote to various churches where he had worked and the brethren whom he loved, that upon every remembrance of them brought joy to his heart
