“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. (Isaiah 43:18)

Do not swell on past sins.  You are forgiven so do not live in that guilt and shame.  Do not dwell so much on what God did in the past that you miss the amazing things he will do in your future.


A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God. (Ecclesiastes 2:24)

Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! (I Corinthians 9:16)

Preaching that changes the world is not done because it is noble or good.  It is preaching done because good news has to be shared.  Good preachers have to preach.


“He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ” (Luke 16:31)

God’s word is powerful.  Use it to speak truth.  If they are not convicted by truth, nothing will faze them.


We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. (Psalm 78:4)

Tell your children and your grandchildren the great stories of the Bible.  Tell them what the Lord has done in your life.
