BIBLICAL EVIDENCE FROM ARCHAEOLOGY

Sure, every city and/or item in the ancient writings of Scripture hasn’t been discovered.  But this we know:  not a single artifact discovered has contradicted the writings of Scripture.  The significance of this point must not be minimized.

For your files, I submit to you a recent article citing the discovery of a 2,600 year old “stamp seal” bearing the name of King David’s son.  You can read that article here.

THE  GOD IN OUR PAIN

Paul wrote, “…the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

The Dutch theologian and author. Henri Nouwen, once said, “Sometimes, the only prayer I can utter is, ‘Lord, help me.’”  A picture really does say a thousand words…

QUOTE of the WEEK

“We are most like beasts when we kill. We are most like men when we judge. We are most like God when we forgive.” – William Arthur Ward

And a bonus (I saw this on the wall of the elementary school my wife, Michelle, teaches at):

 

LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE

 

GRACE NOTES:  When God says, “Have it your way.”

God’s love is inexhaustible.  But, being a just God, there comes a point when finally says, “Do you really want to ruin your life?  Have it your way.”
