  1. So in effect, then, if we look for entertainment, we are actually searching for joy in the wrong place. Therefore, whenever we feel a need for entertainment, we should search out a way to bless and cheer others instead, for it is more blessed to give than receive...

  3. Amen... Why do we so often think that taking the banner of Christ is a promise of fun.... I've yet to find that verse - but I do see that our joy will be full - even when our backs are torn to pieces and we are hung upside down in a dark mucky dungeon....

    "I write this letter in my prison, and with my fettered hand, expecting my sentence of death tomorrow....When, with the assistance of Jesus Christ, we shall again meet in the delicious peace of the future life, you will learn how merciful God has shown Himself toward me, how effectually He has supported me in the midst of my temptations and trials." --John Huss
