Sunday Snippets

I am so thankful that after a session of snippets during worship service, I can return to God's word to get the full story.

2 Peter 1:3-11 was the focus today. I was struck most by verses 5-8:

"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess the qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Hmmm, "make every effort" and "in increasing measure", I guess that means you should never allow yourself to stop growing and improving.

  3. Interesting. I tend to make some effort and just get out the measuring stick, but that's not cutting it.
