A Search For The Top Ten

March 15, 2012

BibleGateway, an online Bible resource, looked at the viewing habits of some of their 8 million monthly visitors. They found that John 3:16 was the most-searched-for verse in 2010.

I don’t think it’s surprising that it would be number one on the list. It tells us that God loved us so much that He sent His Son to rescue us from our sin and give us everlasting life. Number 10 on the list is Jesus’ commission to His followers to spread that good news: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” (Matt. 28:19). Also in the top 10 are Jeremiah 29:11 and Romans 8:28 about God’s good plans and purposes for His people.

The Scriptures are filled with truths to search out and share. In Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, the psalmist shared his thoughts about the Word and his desire to search it and be taught by God. He said, “Oh, how I love Your law!” (v.97). Our Bible reading for today shows some of the psalmist’s reasons for loving it: It gives him wisdom and understanding, it restrains his feet from evil, and it is sweet. Therefore, it’s his meditation “all the day.”

Let’s keep taking the time to read the Bible. The more we search the Word, the more we’ll grow in our love for it and its Author (v.97).

Search the Scriptures’ precious store—
As a miner digs for ore;
Search, and you will surely find
Treasures to enrich the mind. —Anon.
The more you read the Bible, the more you’ll love its Author.

Read: Psalm 119:97-104

Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. —Psalm 119:97
Bible in a Year:
1 Samuel 4-7

BAND OF BROTHERS



Members of the 101st Airborne, June 7, 1944 at Ste.Marie du Mont, France

WORLD WAR II

This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say, "To-morrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."



Members of the "Chosin Few", 1st Marine Division, December 1950

KOREA

Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words,
Harry the King, Bedford, and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-



Navy Corpsman D. R. Howe treats the wounds of Pfc. D. A. Crum, "H" Company, 2nd Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, during Operation Hue City.

VIETNAM

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.



Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division in action, Afghanistan, 2011

AFGHANISTAN

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let it pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as does a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.


THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TYRANNY GOES ON.
AS IT HAS SINCE TIMES IMMEMORIAL,
THE BAND OF BROTHERS STANDS FAST IN THE BREACH!

They have our six!
Honor them for their Service and Sacrifice!

Aloha again Night Owl! ((HUGS))

The sun is out today doubly so. My son and the cute young wahines came over and we all went to the park (where little 'Ara had a Marie Osmond moment, the shopping, then to snack on some munchies.

We had to go far enough inland to get away from the onshore breeze. I doubt it'll go away anytime soon.

Good evening, Luv...((HUGS))...we have to make sure they know we support them. The sleeze panetta dissed the Marines again today in Afghanistan...they aren’t safe even in their “safe” places and they had to leave their weapons outside.

God Bless and watch over all our troops.
