"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

What Should We Think About

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

Such good advice and sounds so simple, so easy. Much to our own detriment, our worldly nature is to focus on disasters and disappointments and perceived perils waiting to befall us. Easy to follow or not, this is still good advice in Philippians. The scriptures are the ultimate reference for a good life.

HB-I agree. Life without the Word is an empty life.

Mrs. Mac- I agree. I have been thinking about this and needed to share.

Susan-and amen!
