The ABC's of Life Day 1

It's not often we can all get together but 22 of us managed to make it work this summer!

August 2
Our oldest grandson is visiting for awhile. He is such a joy!  Our daily goals are to learn something new, do something for someone else, grow physically and spiritually, eat or drink something wonderful, get in the lake, and laugh at least five times every day.

Join us on our spiritual growth journey the next week or so.  We are doing ABC scriptures and discussing how they can apply to life!  Some days I may add The Message translation to help him comprehend the verse.
Here we go:
Day 1  
A- A soft answer turns away wrath.   
     A gentle response defuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper-fire.
     Proverbs 15:1
B- Be kind to one another, tenderhearted forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
     Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk.  Be gentle with one another,
     sensitive.  Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.
     Ephesians 4:32

C- Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right.
     Ephesians 6:1

D -Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
      James 4:8
     So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper.  Say a
     quiet yes to God and he'll be there in no time.  Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life.
     Quit playing the field.  Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out.  The fun and games are over. Get
    serious, really serious.  Get down on your knees before the Master; it's the only way you'll
   get on your feet.
