1 John 1:5

Now this is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in Him.
1 John 1:5 HCSB

In God, darkness cannot exist; God is pure light, He is pure goodness.  When we feel the darkness around us, we must call out to God and go to Him; we must seek Him with all of our existence.  Call out to God and let His light cleanse you of all darkness!

Proverbs 19:14

A house and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a sensible wife is from the Lord.

Proverbs 19:14 HCSB

A sensible wife, a good wife, a God-fearing wife, she is a true gift from the Lord.

The Bible speaks of a few gifts that God gives His children; the gift of Salvation through belief in the Son, the spiritual gifts given to true believers, the gift of Grace, and the gift of a sensible wife to a godly man.  A true gift is something that is given from the heart; a gift from God is, therefore, a gift from God’s Heart.  To reject or damage a gift from God is to say that God’s gift is worthless; that it is trash to be discarded.  Would you throw away a gift from God; would you call God’s gift worthless?  I hope not.

Honor your godly wives for what they are, gifts from God.

1 Chronicles 28:20

Then David said to his son Solomon, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work.  Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you.  He won’t leave you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the Lord’s house is finished.

1 Chronicles 28:20 HCSB

When we have God with us, we are to know that He is with us until the very end, He will not abandon us; but we must remain steadfast to His word, strong to His commands, strong to our faith in Him.

Be strong with God; be courageous and stand your ground against the lies of the devil!

3 John 1:11

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good.  The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.
3 John 1:11 HCSB

We are to do good, not evil; a very simple command.  A child will imitate his parent; a child of God will strive to do good, a child of the devil will strive to do evil.
