1 John 3:4

4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Rom 14:22-23

22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

1 John 5:17a

17a All unrighteousness is sin:


1 John 3:8a “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.”

I once enjoyed B----- B-- tuna salad from a can packed full with absolutely no room for more. Some time ago I opened one to find a small air pocket that got larger as I later bought more at an elevated price. My ice cream sandwich was once full-bodied: wider, plumper, longer and less expensive. My C------- Bar is thinner, a little narrower and costs more. My five pound bag of sugar has lost a pound and has also enjoyed some increase in value. Seems all my food is getting thinner and so is my wallet. But, I have heard that thinner is better so my thinner food should actually be worth more. And, honestly, my thinner self, as well as my thinner wallet, is certainly easier for me to carry around. I am so grateful to all the companies that make this blessing possible; and, many of them have done so without my even discovering they are doing it!

I need to seekmore and trustmore so I can enduremore

I need to forgivemore and lovemore, so I can sharemore

I need to praymore and listen to Himmore, so I can proclaimmore

I need to stay focusedmore and walk with himmore so I can be like himmore

I need to be stillmore and quietmore to hear his voicemore

I need to singmore, shoutmore, and praise him evermore

I need to be thankfulmore, cherish Himmore and count my blessingsmore,

for all of us who have been restored will live and reign with him forevermore. Amen
