Thought for the day

"Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

19 years

October 1, 1999 I married the most amazing girl I have ever meet. Outside of my salvation that was and has been the best decision of my life. We have had tough times where money was tight or nonexistent,but they have always been bearable because she was by my side. She is creative and adventurous with a spirit that always strives for organization. She is at home on our homestead in a way that makes me want to never leave her side and makes me want to strive for greatness. Not for greatness as the rest of the masses see greatness, but in the way that makes me want to fulfill my wildest dreams. She is first in my heart, my cheerleader and my best friend, the amazing mother of our 8 children. She is my best thing. I love you Jessica and look forward to the best years ahead.

The Bible perspective of false witnesses.

From Deuteronomy 19:15-20

One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you. And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

Not much needs being added to this.

“Once and for All” lyrics

God I give You all I can today
These scattered ashes that I hid away
I lay them all at Your feet
From the corners of my deepest shame
The empty places where I've worn Your name
Show me the love I say I believe
Oh Help me to lay it down
Oh Lord I lay it down
Oh let this be where I die
My lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my Kingdom's fall
Once and for all, once and for all
There is victory in my Saviors loss
And In the crimson flowing from the cross
Pour over me, pour over me yes
Oh let this be where I die
My lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my Kingdom's fall
Once and for all, once and for all
Oh Lord I lay it down
Oh Lord I lay it down
Help me to lay it down
Oh Lord I lay it down
Oh let this be where I die
My Lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my Kingdom's fall
Once and for all
Once and for all
Oh once and for all
Once and for all

A Biblical Critique Of Egalitarian Inheritance Practice

This is an excerpt from a Forbes article with an interview at the end. Interesting read and listen.

Ask a successful entrepreneur for some thoughts about economic egalitarianism and you're likely to hear an unhesitating denunciation. Themes such as equal opportunity vs. equal outcomes, lack of incentives, unfairness, dependency, etc. will come tumbling out of the typical wealthy business leader's mouth. But shift the topic to inheritance and, all of a sudden, egalitarianism is just dandy. Wealthy people default to equal inheritance for everyone. Four kids? The math is easy: .25 times the body of the estate. Say the oldest daughter is a saint who calls every week, carries on the faith and ethical tradition of the parents, raised terrific grandchildren, and lives modestly, but the youngest daughter is a hellion who is deeply in debt, hasn't talked to mom or dad in years, gives to no charities and has never settled down. That's pretty much the situation which financial p…
