A Moments Wisdom –It is not necessary to tell your friends about your indigestion or backache. “How are you?” is a greeting, not a question. –An apology is a friendship preserver, an antidote for hatred, never a sign of weakness; it costs nothing but one’s pride, always saves more than it costs, and is a device needed in every home. –Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about themselves, and small people talk about others. –Most people talk too…

A Moments Wisdom on Grace –Any fool can know. The point is to understand. –Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. –Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn. –Children don’t always remember what you try to teach them.

Life’s Little Lessons XVII Perilous Times “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2Tim. 3:1-5). Dear Ann Landers: “The reader signed “Georgia,”…

A Moments Wisdom on Grace –I am nothing but a ripped fabric stitched together by God’s grace. –The fires of refinement come with a cost, but also with a promise. His grace has been extended to you for restoration, confirmation, strengthening, and to establish you in Him. –A sin confessed in humility and sorrow becomes a guilt removed by grace and love. –To find grace, we need not look so very far ahead.
