Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
—James 3:13


Thoughts on Today's Verse...


Wisdom isn't shown by our "book learning," smart comments, or arrogance. No, true wisdom is shown by the godly character of our life lived with humility and kind deeds.


For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do(Ephesians 2:10).

Let's live up to what God has made us to be!

Today's Encouraging Words
 May 07, 2017

Always remember this, because if you are able to remember this, you would realize that every stumble is an opportunity to trust in Christ more fully.



 
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved.”  Ephesians 2:4-5

If you would like to accept Jesus as Lord of your life, you can pray the following prayer:


Lord, I confess that I have sinned against You and ask You to forgive me of my sins.  I’m sorry that my sin has hurt You and other people in my life.  I acknowledge that I could never earn salvation by my good works, but I come to You and trust in what Jesus did for me on the cross.

I believe that You love me and that Jesus died and rose again so that I can be forgiven and come to know You.  I ask You to come into my heart and be Lord of my life.  I trust You with everything, and I thank You for loving me so much that I can know You here on earth and spend the rest of eternity with You in heaven.
