The Good Soil of Sin




Over the last forty (40) years I have written a number of quotes, comments, pithy sayings, and poems in the fly-leafs of my bibles. Each Tuesday I am going to share those various entries from my bibles with you. I hope they will be as much of blessing to you as they have been to me. Sometimes I will be able to give credit where credit is due and sometimes I won’t be able to credit the source. I apologize for this to each one who contributed these gems over the last forty (40) years.

TODAY'S TREASURE:

Sin stems from:

  • a contempt of God's person
  • a despising of God's glory
  • a preference of things (rather than God)

Yvonne - thanks! They truly are the essence of why we more than often prefer ourselves rather than God.
