Last sunny day was a week ago....all these passing showers are getting annoying.

Be careful on the roads, sleet is really tricky as you should know.

The Circle Of The Wise

December 13, 2012

I used to serve on the elder board of a church in California. One elder, Bob Smith, who was older than most of us, frequently called us back to the Word of God for guidance.

On one occasion we were discussing a leadership shortage in the church and had spent an hour or more working through various solutions. Bob was silent throughout the discussion. Finally, he said quietly, “Gentlemen, we’ve forgotten Jesus’ solution to our leadership issue. Before we do anything, we must first ‘ask the Lord of the harvest . . . to send out workers’” (Luke 10:2 niv). We were humbled, and spent the rest of our time praying that God would raise up workers and send them into the field.

C. S. Lewis said, “The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.” Proverbs 1:5 says, “A man of understanding will attain wise counsel.” Bob’s comment is just one example of the value of wise men and women who “have known Him who is from the beginning” (1 John 2:13-14) and whose minds are saturated with the Word of God.

Let’s take to heart the counsel of those who have lived in the Lord’s presence and are mature in His wisdom. They are God’s gift to us and our churches.

The older saints who trust God’s Word
Have trod the paths that we now walk;
They’ve fought the battles we now fight—
Their wisdom teaches truth and right. —Branon
That one is truly wise who gains his wisdom from the experience of others.

Read: 1 John 2:12–17

I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. —1 John 2:13
Bible in a Year:
Philemon

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

FORT HUACHUCA — Soldiers of the 11th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade who deployed to Afghanistan on Jan. 8 are scheduled to return to this southern Arizona Army post on Thursday.

The 60 soldiers of the brigade’s headquarters and headquarters company will be greeted by family members and friends at a ceremony in the Murr Community Center sometime after their arrival at Libby Army Airfield.

Remembering and singing I'll Be Home For Christmas in their honor.
