Wisdom Loves You

Thoughts from the Mens Wed Morning Meeting 06/15

Have you ever noticed how childlike Benny Hinn is? He is always ecstatic about God's healing in people... He is always in awe about how much God loves him and his people... He is truly enveloped with the revelation of God's love for himself and for people... There is a sweetness to his anointing that is rare indeed. There are things about his personality that rub some people wrong, especially religious people... but if you place your preconceived ideas aside and spend some time getting to know him and his heart you can't help but love him.

"Do well what you do" Doc Holliday: Credat Judaeus apella, non ego. "The Jew Apella may believe it, not I" Johnny Ringo (while tapping his gun): Eventus stultorum magister. "Events are the teachers of fools" Doc Holliday (eyes wide open speaking in a haunting whisper): In pace requiescat. "Rest in peace"

A recent encounter has caused me to examine myself. From time to time my old nature comes out and I let loose what is known in English as a "Curse Word" It…
