Thrivent Magazine - August Edition mentions Take Time For God's Word

Thrivent Financial provides insurance and investment services to a wide range of individuals. They were formed years ago through a merger of the Aid Association for Lutherans and Lutheran Brotherhood Insurance. They maintain a strong charitable giving focus and provide a page (the back page of their monthly magazine) to focus on a Bible verse submitted by one of their members and what that verse means to that person. For August 2017, they had selected the 12:12 Romans verse which has been one of my key life verses (and was our wedding verse back in 1973).

Ask and you shall receive…wisdom…

1:05 James "If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking." (NIV)

Don’t be afraid to ask for wisdom… Ask. It is a simple, short, and VERY powerful word. We need to do this more often. We need to ask God for wisdom. We need to strive to learn more about Him. We need His insights and understanding to help us in our daily lives. AND…He gives it freely, just for our asking!! Ask!

Will others see the love of Christ in you?... 5:16 Matthew

As we are preparing to enter a new year (2016), we are all making plans for what we will do or change to try to make it a great year. Is one of those changes to be more loving and to let others see Christ working in your life? If so, then Matthew 5:16 is a great reminder verse. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (RSV) During our weekly Bible Studies at our church, we have discussed some of the current people who are making headlines. Some are famous people.
