We were designed to
have a lasting impact on
eternity. Everyone will die, but
few people will ever truly live.
To live like a Centurion,
to live with honor before God
and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live
with dedication to a cause, to
live with compassion for others,
is to live in a way that will
echo in eternity.
We meet for
coffee and conversation on
Saturdays at Einstein Bagels at
7:00am. See you there.
We're studying David A Man After
on Facebook and twitter.

Every good and
perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
My friend Gloria called with
excitement in her voice. She had not
been able to leave her home except for
doctors’ appointments. So I understood
why she was so happy to tell me, “My
son just attached new speakers to my
computer, so now I can go to my
church!” Now she could hear the live
broadcast of her church’s worship
service. She raved about God’s
goodness and the “best gift my son
could have given me!”
teaches me about having a thankful
heart. Despite her many limitations,
she’s thankful for the smallest of
things—sunsets, helpful family and
neighbors, quiet moments with God, the
ability to remain in her own
apartment. She’s had a lifetime of
seeing God provide for her, and she
talks about Him to anyone who visits
We don’t know what
difficulties the author of Psalm 116
was encountering. Some Bible
commentaries say it was probably
sickness because he said, “the cords
of death entangled me” (v. 3). But he
gave thanks to the Lord for being
gracious and full of compassion when
he was “brought low” (vv. 5–6).
When we’re low, it can be hard to
look up. Yet if we do, we see that God
is the giver of all good gifts in our
life—great and small—and we learn to
give Him thanks.
I render to the Lord for all his
benefits to me? . . . I will offer to
you the sacrifice of thanksgiving (Ps.
116:12, 17 esv).
Praise to God comes naturally when you
count your blessings.
INSIGHT: This marvelous psalm
celebrates the miraculous deliverance
we receive from the God who comes to
our rescue. Verses 1–9 recognize the
call for help, the gracious response
of God, and the praise and rest that
come to us after a stressful time.
Verses 8–9 also give us an eloquent
summary of God’s deliverance: “For
you, Lord, have delivered me from
death, my eyes from tears, my feet
from stumbling, that I may walk before
the Lord in the land of the living.”
These two verses are worth memorizing
as a means of strengthening our faith,
giving thanks for past help from God,
and in preparation for future trials.
Fear of death, tears of sorrow, and
even stumbling feet find their comfort
and restoration in the God of grace.
All of these offer reasons to count

"And if it seems evil
to you to serve the Lord, choose
for yourselves this day whom you
will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that
were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the
Amorites, in whose land you
dwell. But as for me and my
house, we will serve the Lord."
