Yet again?

This was our view from the front door this morning. The snow stopped falling a couple of hours ago, and we have nothing to show for it now! Gotta love that! :)

I want to share w/you a part of our family devotion we had today...and will copy just some of what Kevin read to us in our bulletin devotional.
Dependability - Genesis 18:23-33
Why did Abraham stop at ten? A careful study of Lot's family in Sodom indicates that Lot very likely had at least ten family members. Abraham thought for sure that he could depend on Lot to have instructed his family in righteousness. Surely the LORD would find ten righteous, even if He looked no further than Lot's family. Obviously, Abraham was wrong to think he could depend on Lot. Though sin brought God's attention upon Sodom, an undependable Lot sealed its fate.

How would the Bible story of Sodom be different if Lot would have been dependable? How would the fate of others be different if you were dependable?

Daddy's "Food for Thought" question (located at the end of his last Bible answer in "Archive of Bible Answers from Daddy" )

My little answer: Since many of those verses are talking about someone being here before anything was...sounds as if it has to be referring to Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I'm sure someone else can give a much more elaborate answer than me.

Everyone! Daddy has just posted his answer to the latest Bible sure to read it!

I read daddy's bible answer and received such a blessing from these two verses.
Ps 119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.
Ac 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
I can't help but believe that Paul knew this verse by heart and applied it here in this situation. What an example of dependability talked about in your devotion and how this influenced those around them. Because the word tells us that the prisoners heard them. How different things would have been if they had moaned and groaned about things and not believed and applied Ps 119:62 in their lives.

As always, I loved reading Daddy's answers. Those were wonderful devotional thoughts that you wrote also, Candace.
