I don't follow or reciprocate following several fine folk because I have enough exposure already to political news and opinion. Not that I may have anything against them.

Human vs. God | Forthright Fellowship Room

> Why is it so important to know the scriptures? Some people have been taught a list of Do’s and Don’ts. Such lists are merely human commands and teachings.

Some thoughts are flashes that soon disappear, others are lightning bugs that float along throbbing with light.

Are you fearful? | Forthright Fellowship Room

> Are you fearful? People react in different ways to fear. Some are motivated to move and get things done. Others are paralyzed and can only sit with dread watching as events occur.

A time to refrain – Forthright Magazine

> When my wife and I read Ecclesiastes in our daily devotional recently I paused at the end of 3:5 to ask facetiously, “Is this a prophecy of the Covid Pandemic?”

Websites be advised: I don't do email subscriptions. I learned my lesson. Don't offer, don't ask.

If you don't have an feed, I'll move on to one that does.

Thank you for reading this public service announcement.

A devotional started out by saying,

> Weekly church attendance gives you a designated time to worship God. This is fulfilling the greatest commandment to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind.

True. (I'm not a fan of the phrase "weekly church attendance," but we'll let it slide.)

And also fulfilling in part the second greatest commandment, as well as fulfilling the great purpose for which the Christian obeyed the truth in order to purify his soul (read 1 Peter 1.22).

Pain is in subtraction,
though loss does not mean less.
Paring down to essentials
means growth in what best.

Many #Christians know about BibleGateway, but I was reminded this morning why remains my preferred translation and favorite study tool: translator's notes, integrated Greek, and while not as many other comparative translations as BibleGateway, it's got some very good ones.

If you want to really dig into nuances and do some real study on a passage, you might want to give it a look. #Bible

Your eyes are too pure to even look at evil. You cannot turn Your face toward injustice. So why do You stand by and watch those who act treacherously? Why do You say and do nothing When the wicked swallows up one who is more in the right than he is?#Habakkuk 1

> Time is a talent given us by God, and it is misspent and lost when not employed according to his design. If we have lost our time heretofore, we must double our diligence for the future. Of that time which thousands on a dying bed would gladly redeem at the price of the whole world, how little do men think, and to what trifles they daily sacrifice it! People are very apt to complain of bad times; it were well if that stirred them more to redeem time. – Matthew Henry
