Matthew 4:4

(As human nature has not changed nor have our predicaments, the stories in this collection of many books is more up-to-date than tomorrow's 24/7 news cycle.)

 

 


www.sxc.hu/No compromise

Biblia Files (part 2) - What is the Bible Basically About?
(Who is this Alpha and Omega?  (Hint:  The Lamb and the Cross are a giveaway.) )


  

 


amazon/Gideon

Biblia Files (part 3) - 
Gideon - weakness, warts and all
 

( ...so many of us may feel like Gideon - small, insignificant, weak - especially when oppressed by powerful foes.  But  God uses our weaknesses as the key to tap into His resources and give us His strength to open the door to victory.) 

 


Wikipedia/Christ driving the Traders from the Temple

Biblia Files (part 4) - Holy Hyperlinks

(For bloggers, hyperlinks are our friends.  They can link the reader to another page with more information about a key phrase or give a reference for a point made.
...And as we are in the season of Lent, here is a great example of one of these Holy Hyperlinks that Jesus used in throwing out the money changers in the Temple.)

Proverbs

   


Wikipedia/Internet map

Proverbs (part 1) - Information vs. Wisdom
(How do we manage with so much information thrown at us - ever growing, ever changing?
It takes some wisdom.)


 


Wikipedia/Beowulf and the dragon

Proverbs (part 2) - 
Live Long and Prosper
 
(We may know it as a Vulcan greeting from Star Trek.  And it may be no coincidence that the actor, Leonard Nimoy, who first played Mr. Spock, and made this phrase well know, again, is Jewish.)

  

 


Wikipedia/The Procuress

Proverbs (part 3) - 
Strangers with eye candy?

(The Book of Proverbs spends many chapters warning young men about the strange woman ...  the adulterous woman.  And those warnings certainly apply to the young woman about the strange man.)

 Timeless Truths(part 4) - 
A Mother's Advice

(And as Mother's Day has been set aside to recognize mothers - without mothers none of us would be here - it seems fitting to offer tribute to this most famous of mothers, who to this day has given us the most excellent advice.)

Timeless Truths 
(part 5): 
Always Assume Positive Intent

(At times, quick judgments must be made.  At first, they may service us well as a filter - to see trouble coming and avoid it.  But left unchecked, quick judgments with limited information can morph into prejudice.  We don't know the whole story.)

    

Magna Carta/wikipedia.com

Timeless Truths 
(part 6) - 
Magna Carta - 
800 years 
and still going strong
(In 1215, failed foreign policies and heavy taxation spurred an uprising of powerful English barons against King John. Under duress, this successor to his brother Richard I, the Lion Heart signed a document which put all future monarchs under the rule of law.)
