Upright Man

“Truly, this only I have found: That God made man upright, But they have sought out many schemes.”
Ecclesiastes 7:29 29

God created man in his own image (Genesis 1. 26) and He made him to stand upright. Solomon, the author of Ecclesiastes, was a great king, the son of David and he truly had a handle on what man is really like. In the first chapter of his writings it says “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind.” (Ecclesiastes 1.14). When God created mankind on the sixth day, he was to have dominion over the rest of creation. (Genesis 1. 26). He was to care for God’s creation.

How we have failed. The first man sinned and all of us have been corrupted by that sin. We are creatures… Continue reading


Thought for the morning

There is no scripture to open up with this morning, because “tolerance” is not a word found in scripture. However, does that mean we are not to be tolerant? I am glad that most people tolerate me. Other words we could use for the word tolerance are, open mindedness, acceptance, patience, and charity (love).

I think we could say God was very tolerant with Israel. Engineers when designing a particular part for, say an automobile, places tolerance on dimensions. If the part does not meet the tolerances, the part is scrapped or rejected. Tolerance sets boundaries!

When dealing with others there are boundaries we should not cross. We are to love the sinner but not the sin! Sin is outside the boundary of acceptance!

1 Thessalonians 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold… Continue reading

I can go to her


Thought for the morning – written with tears

 2 Samuel 12:22-23  And he (David) said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the LORD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ 23  But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

When a loved one is going through the final steps of leaving this world, we who love this one agonize before the Lord with many tears, prayers and supplications. We may plead with the Lord, but we always know it is not our will but His that is to be done.

David fasted and wept for his newly born son who was deathly ill; born of Bathsheba, the… Continue reading

Trust in the Lord


Psalm 59:16

Psalm 59:16

Proverbs 3:5 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 14:12 12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

We can place our trust in many difference places. But many times our trust in someone or something does not pan out. Some have trusted us in some area and have been disappointed when we fail to fulfill that trust. There is One we can totally trust in, and that is our Savior the Lord Jesus. Trust and hope go hand in hand. We trust in the eternal hope we have in Him. We trust that God is faithful to His word and He will not abandon us! In the faitfulness of God lies our trust.

Trust in our own… Continue reading
