... more precious than rubies

16 Aug 04

PRINCIPLE - the source or origin of
anything; a general truth, a truth so
broad and sweeping that many other
truths can be considered offshoots of it

Guiding Principles


Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding. For the profit of wisdom is better than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly.

PRAYER - I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and
for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight
of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto
the knowledge of the truth. I Tim 2:1-4

ENCOUNTER - And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. Luk 19:13
