Day Eighty Eight – Being A Discerning Christian

Day Twenty Seven – Priest and King

David, as a shepherd boy, had a heart for God.  While he was doing the task of taking care of the family flock and herds he meditated upon God and His Word; writing and singing songs [Psalms].  He would become angry when ever he heard an enemy or anyone defy the name of Jehovah [YHWH].  …

Day Twenty Three – A Heart Turned Away

David, even though he had committed adultery against Uriah the Hittite, and had murdered him is still the standard of a man with a heart for God.  The thing which makes a difference is that he did have a heart for God.  He loved God, and wanted only to glorify Him.  It is seen in …

The Diligent, the Righteous, and the Wise

"The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother. Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

Power Unto God

"Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.  How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? Ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall, a tottering fence.  They only consult to cast …
