TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

Caring And Sharing

Watching my two older grandchildren, boy and girl, play basketball made me think about the concept of sharing and caring. They are just brother and sister, playing ball, competing and trying to win over the other. The thought of sharing in the sport probably never crossed their minds. They were anxious to be the next one making the goal.

When we 'care', we will 'share' - from our goods to our words of encouragement. Sometimes we care about others, but have no way to share - no material items or perhaps no money to buy anything to help the person in need. But, we can always have words of encouragement flowing from our mouths. God's Word gives hope, hope that we could never give. It can bring peace and joy and comfort to a soul that is suffering.

When you feel there is nothing you can share, share God and His Word.

Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The man who practices high principles of personal Christian integrity every day will not be overcome by a grievous temptation to cheat or be dishonest when such might come his way.

A DISCIPLE'S RENEWAL

O MY SAVIOUR, help me.
I am so slow to learn, so prone to forget, so weak to climb;
I am in the foothills when I should be on the heights;
I am pained by my graceless heart,

  • my prayerless days,
  • my poverty of love,
  • my sloth in the heavenly race,
  • my sullied conscience,
  • my wasted hours,
  • my unspent opportunities.
I am blind while light shines around me:
  • take the scales from my eyes,
  • grind to dust the evil heart of unbelief.

Make it my chiefest joy to study Thee,
  • gaze on Thee
  • sit like Mary at Thy feet,
  • lean like John on Thy breast,
  • appeal like Peter to Thy love,
  • count like Paul all things dung.

Give me increase and progress in grace so that there may be
  • more decision in my character,
  • more vigour in my purposes,
  • more elevation in my life,
  • more fervour in my devotion,
  • more constancy in my zeal.

As I have a position in the world,
  • keep me from making the world my position;

May I never seek in the creature
  • what can be found only in the Creator;

Let not faith cease from seeking Thee until it vanishes into sight.
Ride forth in me, Thou King of kings and Lord of lords,
that I may live victoriously, and in victory attain my end.

I HAD A "DRUG" PROBLEM WHEN I WAS A YOUNG PERSON AND TEENAGER.

I WAS "DRUG" TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING.

I WAS "DRUG" TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY NIGHT.

I WAS "DRUG" TO CHURCH ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

I WAS "DRUG" TO SUNDAY SCHOOL EVERY WEEK.

I WAS "DRUG" TO VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL.

I WAS "DRUG" TO THE FAMILY DEVOTIONAL TO READ THE BIBLE AND PRAY.

I WAS ALSO "DRUG" TO THE WOODSHED WHEN I DISOBEYED MY PARENTS.

THOSE "DRUGS" ARE STILL IN MY VEINS, AND THEY AFFECT MY BEHAVIOR IN EVERY THING I DO, AND SAY, AND THINK.THEY ARE STRONGER THAN COCAINE, CRACK, OR HEROIN.

IF OUR CHILDREN HAD THIS "DRUG" PROBLEM, DO YOU THINK AMERICA WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE?

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from ......

Publisher's Weekly
Angie Kiesling

The biblical character Jabez, whose plea to God provided inspiration for Multnomah's The Prayer of Jabez, asks Jehovah to "enlarge my territory." By all accounts, the pocket-sized book by Bruce Wilkinson has done the same thing for the small evangelical house, whose 2001 revenues tripled the company's previous financial high-water mark in 2000.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

"Lean on Me, for I am Meek and Lowly of Heart"

This may seem even more difficult, for it so often appears to u as if others were actuated by malice.

But how often it is only the result of temperament, pride, thoughtlessness; seeking their own pleasure without a thought of the harm they are doing me; then why be unhappy about it; I need only to be on my guard.

Never stand in the way of others (when it is not the case of a duty to be fulfilled), and if they sometimes are an obstacle in yours, remove them gently, but do not harm them.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
