God Meant it for Good: Episode 3

 And it came to pass after these thintemptationgs, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;
There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.
And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.
And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out. – Genesis 37:7-12

The Wrong Arm of the Law: Episode 8

“We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. maxresdefault

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

Are you a destroyer or a restorer?

In Acts 9:26-31,  we see how the “church” originally reacted to Paul after his conversion.  In this passage, he hasn’t yet taken the name of Paul (the first time Saul is called Paul is found Restore-Mein Acts 13:9, which shows us that Saul took upon himself the name of his first convert Sergius Paulus (Acts 13:7)).  The Disciples were afraid of Paul at the first and did not believe that he was a fellow believer.  They were ready to discount Paul because of his past. They were all too eager to hold his past sins against him while at the same time enjoying forgiveness for their own Sin.  We as Christians are called to ” be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).

Are you helping to restore others to the LORD or are you in the business of destroying those who need our help the most?

Treasure Hunting in the Bible

Geo Caching is like going treasure hunting with the utilization of a Global Positioning System (GPS) to find the location of said “treasure.” Going on one of these “treasure hunts” is a great way to spend quality time outdoors enjoying nature. While hunting for the cache (a hiding place, for ammunition, food, treasures, etc.:) you can explore areas that you didn’t even know were there. You may find a park that you were unaware of; or you may find some trails in your community that are off the beaten track. You can never tell what new thing you may stumble upon while geocaching.
