Thy testimonies also are my delight; they are my counselors.
Psalm 119:24

 

Thought for the Day:

Scripture should be your counselor, not a shrink.

Mini Bible Study for the Day:

You can find direction in the Bible for literally every problem in life. It may take some digging, but God promises the answers are there (Matt. 7:7). In addition to your own study, the wise counsel of your pastor, an elder, and/or Godly men is scripturally encouraged (Prov. 11:14, 20:5; I Pet. 5:1-3).The large movement to “Christian counseling,” outside the local church, is hard to defend scripturally — if you can defend it at all. The premise is that you need the Bible AND modern psychology, rather than the Bible alone. This new “Bible and psychology” theory, therefore claims that up until the 1900s, Christians couldn’t adequately deal with their problems — hardly! The psychologists further claim that with today’s complex problems, modern psychology is needed. We think that is bunk. It seems to us that back in the days when they were burning Christians on poles as lights, the surviving families also had to come to get a grip on life. And they did just fine searching and depending on the scriptures as taught (II Tim. 3:16, 17).

Col. 1:28 “We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ.”

Col. 2:8 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.”

~Good Morning, LORD!
