Out of the Same Mouth

20170317_130233

“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea

are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil,

full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise

our Lord and Father, and with it we curse

men, who have been made in God’s likeness.

Out of the same mouth come praise

and cursing. My brothers,

this should not be.”

 

James 3: 7-10

What Good Is It?

20160509_124822

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.

If one of you says to him, ‘Go I wish you well; keep warm

and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs,

what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself

if it is not accompanied by action,

is dead.”

 

James 2: 15-17

The Lord Looks at the Heart

20160514_124538

“When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, ‘Surely the Lord’s anointed stands here before the Lord.’

But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.

Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.’”

 

I Samuel 16: 6, 7

His Love Endures Forever

20160514_175817

“Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments,

they raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang,

‘He is good, his love endures forever.’

Then the temple of the Lord was filled

with a cloud, and the priests could not perform

their service because of the cloud,

for the glory of the Lord

filled the temple

of God.”

 

2 Chronicles 5: 13b, 14
