Read the Bible.  It was written just for you.

BE A NIGHT LIGHT

The spiritual and moral darkness in our world makes is more and more difficult for people without Jesus to see where they are going.  Be a night light in this dark world.  Matthew 5:16  Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES

Little Nancy was mother’s helper.  She helped set the table when company was due for dinner.  Presently everything was on, the guests came in and everybody sat down.  Then mother noticed something amiss.  “Nancy, dear,” she said, “why didn’t you put a knife and fork at Mr. Wilson’s place?”  “I thought he wouldn’t need them,” explained Nancy.  “Daddy said he always eats like a horse.”

WHO DO YOU THINK THE CARPENTER IS?

Two brothers lived and farmed near each other.  For thirty years, they worked in harmony, borrowing each other’s tools and equipment.  One day a misunderstanding occurred between them, and they stopped speaking to each other.  Months went by.  One day, a carpenter came to the door of the older brother and asked if there was some project he could do.  The man said he would like to have an eight-foot fence constructed, so he could not see his brother’s farm across the creek.  The carpenter said he understood and got to work right away.  All day long, he measured, sawed and hammered.  When the older brother went to look at the finished project, he could not believe what he saw.  No fence was there, but there was a bridge spanning the creek.  To his amazement, his young brother was coming toward him on the bridge with his hand outstretched.  His brother thanked him for building a bridge after all their hostility.  As they shook hands, they saw the carpenter packing his tools.  They asked him to stay, but he said he had other bridges to build.

FALSE DOCTRINE

“What is false doctrine?” the teacher asked her pupils. Up went a little boy’s hand and answered, ”It’s when the doctor gives the wrong stuff to people who are sick and they die.”  That’s pretty good description of some of the messages given from the pulpit by so-called modernists.
