THE INCREDIBLE PROMISE FOR A BIBLE MAN

Bill Elliff Bible

In the very first Psalm, God lays out the path and promises for two contrasting lives: the wicked man who only pays attention to the world, and the godly man who listens intently and continually to God through His Word.

A BIBLE MAN

Bill Elliff Bible

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip. (Psalm 37:30-31) Most men never read the Bible. Although access to God is available, they think it is unneeded. This is pride in its purest form. To choose to lean on your own understanding instead of God's is an indication of total arrogance. It may be unknowing pride, but pride nonetheless. Some men read the Bible occasionally, sporadically looking for a little thought or two. Usually, this is done out of a sense of...
