Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Interesting that when a tree brings forth fruit, it is for the benefit of others, not itself, necessarily. And who remembers what the fruit of the spirit are? Galatians 5:22-23 tells us that "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Part of being blessed is clearly blessing others!

God Bless You!

Q. After Noah sent the dove out a second time, when did it return?

Answer below.



Grace is but glory begun, and glory is but grace perfected.

-J. Edwards



An influential Londoner wound up a business trip to the Orient with a visit to Taipei. At a luncheon he was asked to say a few words. Since he spoke not a word of Chinese, his address was to be translated by an interpreter sentence by sentence.

"I want you to know," he began, "I'm tickled to death to be asked here today."

A look of panicked confusion appeared on the interpreter's face. "This poor man," he said in Chinese, "Scratches himself until he dies, only to be with you today."
