TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Song of Solomon 1:1-4:16  King Solomon and His New Bride Rejoice in Their Love.  Solomon, a son of King David became king.  While visiting a vineyard, Solomon is swept away by the young peasant woman working the vines.  The king seeks the woman’s hand in marriage.  Casting her insecurities aside, she eventually consents.  Solomon’s wife longed for the security of his presence.  The basis of true love is commitment.  A relationship built on true love is void of deceit, manipulation, or exploitation.   

2 Corinthians 8:16-24  Apostle Paul Sends Cohort, Titus, to Receive Collection from the Corinthian Congregation.  Following the Lord’s examples, Christians are called to be generous; a stingy Christian should be extinct; however, sacrificial giving must be responsible.  Give until it hurts but not to the point where it hurts the financial needs of your family and relatives. Paul used every safeguard to maintain integrity in the collection of money for the Jerusalem church.  Christians must have the highest standard of financial responsibility.

Psalm 50:1-23  WISDOM: TO FEAR AND HONOR GOD.  Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:  Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.

Proverbs 22:22-23  Advocate for the poor.  Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will exact life for life.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (9/5)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Ecclesiastes 10:1-12:14  Wisdom for Life.  A wise person chooses the right road; a fool takes the wrong one.  If your boss is angry at you, don’t quit!  A quiet spirit can overcome even great mistakes.  Kings and rulers make a grave mistake when they give great authority to fools and low positions to the wise … Conclusion: Fear God and obey His commands, for this is everyone’s duty.  God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, good and bad.

2 Corinthians 8:1-15  Give joyfully.  Your giving should not make life easy for others and hard for yourselves. There should be some equality.  Right now you have plenty and can help those in need. Later, they’ll have plenty and can share when you’re in need. In this way, things will be equal.

Psalm 49:1-20  Faith vs. Wealth.  In the morning the godly will rule over the rich.  The rich bodies will rot in the grave, far from their grand estates.  But as for me, God will redeem my life … When the rich die, they take nothing.  In this life, they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success.  But they will die like all before them and never again see the light of day.  People who boast of their wealth will die, like animals.

Proverbs 22:20-21  Sayings of the Wise.  I have written thirty sayings for you,  filled with advice and knowledge.  In this way, you may know the truth and take an accurate report to those who sent you.

Plastic Surgery, Beauty, and Self-Confidence

I thought majority of plastic surgery clients were women and celebrities.  Guess what?  Male plastic surgery is on the rise.

By the way, what’s your definition of beauty — big boobs, round butts, tight abs?

Clinical psychologist and UCLA professor of psychiatry and bio-behavioral sciences Dr. Gail Wyatt insists self-confident people have a strong sense of presence and feel they deserve to be treated well.

Not everyone agrees.  That’s okay.  Diversity makes the world go around.

“Unfortunately, the way that people are still attempting to exude self-confidence has a lot to do with the images that they see mostly in the media,” says Wyatt. “Women are still depending on how they are built and how attractive they are, and men still depend on their material acquisitions or wealth. Those things are very exterior and very superficial ways of defining how men and women take the easy way out to feel that they are self-confident.”

If nips and tucks are going to boost the ego, plastic surgery may address some people’s self-esteem issues.  But not a single wrinkle at age 75 — that’s bizarre.

I’m drawn to caring, inspirational, passionate individuals!  Positive vibes are contagious! 🙂

What’s your definition of beauty? (Full Story)

Christmas Blessings

If you can hold someone’s hand, hug them, or even touch them on the shoulder … you are blessed because you can offer a healing touch.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish somewhere, you are among the top 8 percent of the world’s wealthy.

If you wake up this morning with more health than illness … you are more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong.  Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. ~ George Washington Carver

Merry Christmas.
