What are you afraid of? Theres no need to fear! Today there’s so much going on in the political world that well, lets face it, does not give me the most confidence in our government leadership. Now I’m not just talking about the so called leadership that we are supposed to have in Washington, D.C. either. I’m talking about all levels from homeowners associations, city, county, state, USA, with all other countries included and all levels that may be in between. There seems to be no leadership as unemployment is going up, markets are going down, retirement plans are dropping, taxes are going up, it’s harder to make ends meet, crime rates are going up, and it seems like everyday there’s a new murder with many multiple killings and suicides increasing. All that along with the things that I didn’t mention like the talks of (dependent upon who you listen to) global warming, global heating, earthquakes, volcanoes, swine flu, cancer, HIV, AIDS, along with a host of other stuff that could happen to you makes for a rather very scary world we live in doesn’t it? With the horror movies touch of today’s media it makes the world feel even more scary too! Of all listed above, what are you afraid of? Or do you fear something which is not on that list? Some people are afraid to die. Some people “say” that they do not fear death. Some people live their life as if to “say” that they do not fear death. These people all fear death. Do you? You and I do not have to fear anything. We need to be afraid of nothing as long as we have placed our faith in God’s gift to us. Accepting God’s gift to you costs you nothing and is very freeing because you no longer need to be afraid. Think of how much relief you will have from the world of troubles with your choice to place your faith into God and accept His free gift to you. Read the following verses from the Holy Bible and see how much God loves you and me with these promises He made to you and me. If you accept Him and the free gift He has offered to you, you will feel His protection and perfect love for you. Psalms 56:4 - In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me? Psalms 56:11 - In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? Proverbs 3:25 - Do not be afraid of sudden fear Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; Isaiah 12:2 - "Behold,...
Not even the wisest people know everything, even if they say they do. This post is selected in order passages from the book of Ecclesiastes from the Old Testament. Open your mind to truth and understand that, “Not even the wisest people know everything, even if they say they do.” (Ecclesiastes 8:17) ---------------------------------- Ecclesiastes 1:4-11 Generations come and go, but nothing really changes. The sun rises and sets and hurries around to rise again. The wind blows south and north, here and there, twisting back and forth, getting nowhere. The rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full. Then the water returns again to the rivers and flows again to the sea. Everything is so weary and tiresome! No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content.History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. What can you point to that is new? How do you know it didn't already exist long ago? We don't remember what happened in those former times. And in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now. Ecclesiastes 2:12-16 So I decided to compare wisdom and folly, and anyone else would come to the same conclusions I did. Wisdom is of more value than foolishness, just as light is better than darkness. For the wise person sees, while the fool is blind. Yet I saw that wise and foolish people share the same fate. Both of them die. Just as the fool will die, so will I. So of what value is all my wisdom? Then I said to myself, "This is all so meaningless!" For the wise person and the fool both die, and in the days to come, both will be forgotten. Ecclesiastes 3:1-15 There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace. What do people really get for all their hard work?...
