Suddenly I heard the words of Christ and understood them, and life and death ceased to seem to me evil, and instead of despair I experienced happiness and the joy of life undisturbed by death.
I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
The King James Version
We are not criticized for being Christians, but for not being Christian enough.
And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgvie our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one, For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
The New King James Version
Every man is a fool for at least five minutes every day. Wisdom consists in not exceeding that limit.
