Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

February 20, 2011 (diligence)

“What we hope ever to do with ease,
we must learn first to do with diligence.”
- Samuel Johnson

“When the hay is removed and new growth appears
and the grass from the hills is gathered in,
the lambs will provide you with clothing,
and the goats with the price of a field.
You will have plenty of goats’ milk
to feed you and your family.”
- Proverbs 27:25-27 NIV

Even so, as we practice diligence
here on earth to satisfy our bodily needs
(and are thus blessed by our heavenly Father),
we must place greater emphasis on the spirit.

"It is written:
'Man does not live on bread alone,
but on every word
that comes from the mouth of God.'"
- Matthew 4:4 NIV
