Scripture Graphics #61

"The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat." Proverbs 13:4
"Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase." Proverbs 13:11
"In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury." Proverbs 14:23

What is our diet—what do we crave? When we have free time to use, do we fill our minds with empty entertainment or do we seek that which encourages godliness?

We can justify pretty much anything we do and convince ourselves that there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing “this or that.” But we aren’t the judge of what is clean—God is. And if we truly want to know if He approves, we will seek His definition of what is clean and good. “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (vs 6)

Wisdom never comes by accident. We must desire it, separate ourselves, and seek it. Many people stop at just desiring it.

Jeremiah 33:3, "God's telephone number".

Today is our FBN share-a-thon. Please pray that we can raise another 6 months of finances and hopefully raise extra for a mission work of some kind. I'll link our site to my name. Check us out!

@ Ryana - love that! <3 :) How did the share-a-thon go? I prayed. :) Whoa... wait... I think I've been on FBN broadcasting before. How long has the website been up? Like, I think I used to listen to it several years ago...
