Ladies and Gentlemen LOOK what the LORD has DONE!

The LORD demands accurate scales and balances; He sets the standards for fairness. A king detests wrongdoing, for his rule is built on justice.

The king is pleased with words from Righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly. The anger of the king is a deadly threat; the wise will try to appease it.

When the king smiles, there is life; his favor refreshes like a spring rain.

How much better to get Wisdom than gold, and good judgment than silver!

The path of the virtuous leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe.

Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.

Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud.

Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the LORD will be joyful. The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant words are persuasive.

Discretion is a life-giving fountain to those who possess it, but discipline is wasted on fools. From a wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive. Kind words are like honey — sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

Proverbs 16:11-24


Dear ones, whenever anyone is seduced by PRIDE, they become stubborn and deceived. Self-centeredness demands an attitude of ‘my way or the highway’ and will not compromise any position. We witness the pride-filled arrogance of many people in Congress and on the ‘news media’.  They either can NOT or will NOT admit that they have made any mistake and insist they are ‘telling the truth’ when facts provided prove otherwise.

Jesus replied,

You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote,
‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.'

Mark 7:6-7

Holy Spirit of the Living LORD, we PRAY in agreement with Your Word that on Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.  Amen and Amen!
