The "Man With the Red Bandana" - #6523
Welles Crowther's father said, "His last hour was his legacy." Well, Jesus' last hour, when He was on that cross and chose to be cut off from God so we would never have to be, that was His legacy. And with a very full heart, I can tell you, I'm part of that legacy, and you can be too.
The Wrong Person's in Front - #6048
The word "sin" and the word "pride" have that same middle letter, don't they - "I." Pride cost Lucifer his place in heaven. Pride is always expensive. God won't tolerate it. He hates pride and self-promotion. There's only one Name we should be drawing attention to. It is the name of Jesus. There's only one Star in God's constellation, and His name is Jesus. And there's only one kingdom to be building with our time and our money, and it's the kingdom of Jesus.
Tower - a Christian perspective
God is described here, as in many other passages, as a tower of refuge within which His children can find safety.
"Count the cost" in the Bible: Luke 14:28-30
When any of us begin a project we count the cost and estimate whether or not we can afford to complete it. Jesus gives us the example of building a tower. If a man was to not count the cost and go ahead and start building and have to stop, he would be ridiculed.
