Proverbs 13:14 - The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, To turn aside from the snares of death.
Words to Ponder
Though our differences are sad enough, yet they come not up to this to make us men of different religions. We agree in the same end, though not in the same means. They are but different ways of opposing the common enemy. The agreeing in the same means, in the same way of opposing the common enemy, would be very comfortable. It would be our strength. But that cannot be expected in this world. - Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646)
