THE WAY OF WISDOM

He who reproves a scoffer gets shame for himself, and he who rebukes a wicked man gets himself a blemish.

Do not reprove a scoffer, lest he hates you; Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase  in learning.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding,

For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you,

If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, and if you scoff, you alone will bear it.

PROVERBS  9: 7-12

HOLINESS IN PUBLIC LIFE

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.

Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

 

COLOSSIANS 4: 2-6

PAUL THE APOSTLE

Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead)

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from Heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Christ. But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.

GALATIANS 1:1, 6-12

Evangelist Thomas Parsons Jr. President/Servant
