Proverbs 14:24: The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly.



O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. Ps. 47:1

The problem we, as believers, have is that by nature we’re prone to look at the problem and despair rather than look at the solution to the problem and find comfort, rest and hope. When the children of Israel were being bitten by the fiery serpents, they weren’t told to look at the snakes, but were instructed of God, through Moses, to look to the serpent of brass that was raised up…a beautiful picture and type of our Lord Jesus who was made sin for us, the Substitute and Savior of His people, and live.                                                               Pastor Marvin Stalnaker



We can look at the waves of the trial until we are no longer looking down or across but up at them.  We should take our eyes off the waves and look to Christ.  Yet, it is so hard to do when the waves are raging.  But as a dear pastor friend, who is in a great trial himself, recently told me, “Our souls sometimes sink within us but we can sink no lower than those everlasting arms of love that are always underneath us.”






     I have a notebook that I keep on my desk in which I write just about everything in. But if you look through my book, you will find most of the pages filled with what I call doodling (which means to scribble absentmindedly). But not every page is that way. Sometimes, when I think and consider the ones in my life that I so dearly love, I write down their name. Recently my grandson was looking in my book and he saw his name, and he excitedly said, “That’s my name, Papaw.” “Why did you write down my name?” I told him that I wrote his name in my book because I loved him, and always thought of him, and that I always had his best interest at heart. Now, every time he comes to our house, and into my study, he wants to see his name written in my book. He likes it when he sees his two sisters’ names. He likes it when he sees his mother’s name. He even likes it when he sees my name. But the name he loves to see and wants to see the most is his name.


     I love to think about my name being written in heaven, in God’s eternal Book, that Book of Life of the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:8) What great joy it would bring me to see the names of all whom I love written in God’s Book. Lost sinner, I would love to see your name written there. But like my grandson, there is one name that I desire to see above all the others, and that is mine! The thought of my name being written there makes me feel and act like I am five years old again. For like my grandson, I know that God loves me. I know that Christ died for me, and I know that I am constantly and forever on His mind. God, my Father, has my eternal interest and welfare at heart. Is your name written there?  May God be pleased to make it so!                                         Pastor David Eddmenson






    When unjustly judged, rather than defend himself or fire back a barrage of accusations, the Holy Spirit moved the apostle Paul to write, “with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self…but he that judgeth me is the Lord.” 

    Here then is the Holy Spirit’s instruction to us when we are judged unjustly and/or are tempted to hastily make our judgment, “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.” 

     It takes God’s grace to make us do so—especially when we are unjustly judged—but remember Paul’s words when unjustly judged of men, “It is a very small thing!”   Wait on the Lord to make all things clear!



Assembling with our brethren under the preaching of the gospel is more vital than anything else in the life of a believer.  It is through preaching that God has chosen to save his people from the first hour of conversion until we take our last breath.  Therefore, nothing is worth making us cease gathering together with God’s saints.  It is a sad but true fact which is declared in scripture and verified by experience that when those in a local assembly cease assembling with their brethren they have taken the first step to apostacy.  When God’s wisdom in saving by this means becomes insignificant to a professing believer they are dangerously entering the broad way that leads to destruction. May God make us hear and heed his word to “consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries” (Heb 10:24-27).
