Proberbs 14

So we read some Proverbs this evening. Well, Greg did. We listened. Well, me and Ethan listened. Emma kept getting in trouble for playing with Pugly.

Greg suggested we ready some Bible Stories to her. We got out our Egermeier's Bible Story book and read about Jesus' healing the blind, dumb, deaf, and possessed. I can't believe Ethan and Emma didn't say anything about the dumb.

Anyone have suggestions for other books who help our little one's grasp God's miracles?

Also, in our service tonight, we studied on passion. Some said passionate people act proud. I have never heard pride mentioned in a good way. I've always read, and always been taught, that pride means we had something to do with the goodness. If we believe that only God is the goodness, then there is no room for pride.

However, many in the crowd agreed that there is a good and bad pride.



  1. i take pride in my work...i think that's good. (but i probably should boast about it, eh?)

    also, 'the big picture storybook bible' gives kiddos the big picture about the gospel from start to finish. emma will love it. (it may be a little young-ish for ethan, but he can sit on the side and pretend he's not interested!)i think our library might have it.

  2. Your response reminded me of Malichi 1:8

    And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts

    I thought of that last night during discussion. If you are truly passionate, you will seek to be competent in that service. Therefore, taking pride in your work. Not boasting, lest you would think there is something to your works, eh?

    But taking care to offer up the very best.

    Check - one area where I will allow the word pride to be used. laughing inside, not out loud

    Thanks for the idea for the book, I may just check that out...literally...check it out of the library.
