LEVEL TITLE TOPIC
Basic Impatient God?

Jesus is the salt of the world and wants men to come to him, but He knows that in order for men to come to Him, He needs to be patient and slow to judge. He has to allow time to pass for men to relax and trust that He isn’t just waiting to “zap” them, but wants them to come to Him.

2 Peter 3:9
Premium A Good Name

A good reputation is more valuable than anything else in life. A good reputation can bring happiness to a poor man just as a bad reputation can bring misery upon a wealthy man.

Proverbs 3:1-4
Premium Bible Delight

What would it be like if we really enjoyed reading the Bible? Some people consider reading the Bible a duty or a chore. If so, it is only because they have not yet discovered the impact it can have on their life!

Psalm 1:2
Premium Free, Not Robots

We are not robots, God has given us the freedom to listen and obey Him, or to go our own way. It is called a “free will,” but things sure go better when we do choose to listen and obey God.

Psalm 32:8
Premium Future Glory!

No Pain, No Glory

Suffering, Heaven
Premium Hidden in Your Heart

What do you think it means hide something in your heart? It goes beyond just memorizing. It means to treasure the knowledge. You may have memorized your address, but you probably wouldn’t say you’ve hidden your address in your heart!

Psalm 119:11
Premium Messy Hair Day

This Bible passage is one of the few passages in scripture that is actually humorous! In trying to describe what a person is like who reads the Bible and then doesn’t do what he reads, it describes a person who gets out of bed in the morning, looks in the mirror, sees their messy hair – but instead of fixing what he sees, just goes out for the day.

James 1:22-25
Premium Near or Far

God never misses any detail in our life! He loves us and He is watching over us and helping us every step of the way. When we are trusting Him and obeying Him we know He is working everything out for good in our lives because we love Him.

Psalm 1:4-6
Premium Pet Peeves

Because our hearts are sinful, even when we manage to control our actions and not sin, our hearts can still harbor sinful thoughts and attitudes. God considers it sin even if we only want to do a sin that we never commit!

Hebrews 4:12
Premium Straight Paths

When we think we know best and God’s Word says the opposite, better go with God’s advice. Acknowledging Him comes into play when we succeed in making sure we don’t take credit for the success that God brings into our life as though we somehow are the reason rather than God.

Proverbs 3:5-6
