Being Sick

April 24, 2008

I’ve been sick over the past week. It just came over me suddenly. So…I’m a little behind in my reading.

Here is what I have written over the past couple of days:

Their inheritance came from part of what had been given to Judah because Judah’s territory was too large for them. So the tribe of Simeon received an inheritance within the territory of Judah.
Joshua 19:9

O LORD, I cry out to you. I will keep on pleading day by day.
Psalm 88:13

People who despise advise will find themselves in trouble; those who respect it will succeed.
Proverbs 13:13

Everyone of these towns had pasturelands surrounding it.
Joshua 21:42

But be very careful to obey all the commands and the law that Moses gave to you. Love the LORD your God, walk in all his ways, obey his commands, be faithful to him, and serve him with all your heart and all your soul.
Joshua 22:5

Wise people think before they act; fools don’t and even brag about it.
Proverbs 13:16

Hmm….fools don’t and even brag about it. I’ve been guilty of this before. I’ve acted without thinking…especially in my younger days. I think as we get older we do think before we act because of our experiences which remind us that we didn’t think. What a great gift God has given us — the ability to think.
