Daily Wisdom
Proverbs 11:19 - He who is steadfast in righteousness will attain to life, And he who pursues evil will bring about his own death.
Words to Ponder
Become a mountain climber on the cliffs of God's majesty, and let the truth begin to overwhelm you so that you will never exhaust the heights of God. Every time you climb over a rim of insight there stretches out before you, disappearing into the clouds, a thousand miles of massive beauty in the character of God. Set yourself to climb, and ponder the thought that everlasting ages of discovery in the infinite Being of God will not suffice to weaken your gladness in the glory of God or dull the intensity of gravity in his presence. - John Piper (b. 1947)

WITHOUT union to Christ, there can be no good works; and until we are dead to the law we cannot be married to Christ. We must see that there is neither help nor hope for us in any law that God has given, that only grace can save us, before we shall be willing to take Christ as God hath…
