Shade tree wisdom 1/17/17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/17/2017 We are surrounded by sinners for we all are, born so. Hence this bit of advice from King Solomon in his Proverbs is excellent for our daily use. “My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.” Proverbs 1,1 It’s all too easy to fall into a habit without being aware of the damage brought thereby. GPD 1/17/17

Shade tree wisdom 1/16 17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/16/2017 This tells us where it all comes from. All God’s creation depends on His providing. “The eyes of all look to You, And You give them their Food in due season, You open Your hand; And satisfy the desire of Every living thing.” Psalm 145, 15.16 These verses are often used as a table prayer to start a common meal.

Shade tree wisdom 1/15/17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/15/2017 God loves us and always forgives the repentant sinner as Isaiah tells us. “Come now, and let us reason Together, says the Lord; Though your sins are like Scarlet, they shall be ass White as snow; though they are Red like crimson, they Shall be as wool. Isaiah 1,18 What a comforting promise this is. He never says, “Prove you mean it.” He simply forgives out of His love for Jesus’, sake. GPD 1/15/17

Shade tree wisdom 1/14/17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/14/2017 How fine it is when we really do live together amicably as Psalm 133,1 tells us. “Behold, how good and pleasant It is when brothers dwell Together in unity.” Psalm 133,1. Maybe you too have seen neighbors fighting each other, or families quarreling and being discourteous. Tragic, that! GPD 1/14/17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/13/2017 Here is another truth expressed by the hymn that we do well to remember along life’s journey in 2017 “Thy works, not mine, Christ, Speak gladness to this heart; They tell me all is done, They bid my fears depart. To whom save Thee, Who canst alone, for sin atone, Lord, shall flee?” TLB 565,1 So, may your life be richly blessed in 2017. GPD 1/13/17

Shade tree wisdom 1/12/17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/12/2017 During this year let us not forget to rest in Him. The poet said. “Come unto Me ye weary, And I will give you rest” O blessed voice of Jesus, Which comes to hearts oppressed! It tells of benediction, Of pardon, grace, and peace, Of joy that hath no ending, Of m love that cannot cease.” TLH 684,1 GPD 1/12/17

Shade tree wisdom 1/11/17

Shade Tree Wisdom 1/10/2017 Here is a truth we ought always remember. Our salvation is a gift, “so that no one may boast.” “For by grace you have been Saved through faith. And that is not Not your own doing; it is The gift of God, not a result of works, So that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2,8.9 The Lord told the Israelites they were His people not because they were better, but because He loved them. So it still is – a GIFT OF GOD, always it is grace. GPD 1/110/17
