I have been thinking about this for a while now. I don't want to get stuck down a prosperi- ty gospel rabbit hole, but I believe the first things we think about, reflect on, and speak in the morning will guide and determine our day. If the first thing out of our mouth is how horrible to- day will be, then today may be horrible. If the first thing we think about is the sin in our heart, we will spend the day captive by sin, instead of taking every thought cap- tive. I love the Psalms, I love reflecting on David and the other Psalmists words to God. Sometimes the Psalms are a pendulum swing of emotion. But many of us can open the psalms and find one we can resonate with. What I love about Psalm 8 is it de- VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E.

Dr. Robert Asa, Minister clares, poetically the glory of God as the writer looks over creation. I believe when we open our mouths from the time we wake up, to the time we lay down, to proclaim the glory of God, it would change the entire outlook of our days and our lives. DJ Bryant, Pastor are 'too young;' in man- hood, 'too busy;' in maturi- ty, 'too worried;' when aged, 'too old;' when sick, 'too ill;' when dead, 'too late.' Now is the acceptable time with God. Don't wait until it is too late.

Rodney Fretwell, Sr. Pas- tor JESUS CHRIST OUR FIRM FOUNDATION 1415 N. Vincennes Ave. Petersburg 812-354-4424 or 812-582-0240 Sunday morning fellow- ship 10 a.m.; Church at 10 :30 a.m.; Bible studies: Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. at Brian Eilert's house and Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. at church. "Now it was told King Da- vid, 'The Lord has blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God.' So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the city of David with gladness'" (II Samuel 6:12). David is genuinely happy for the blessing that Obed- Edom has received from God, and sees the blessing as a sign that God is not an- gry with Israel for moving the ark closer to Jerusalem. It was initially left there due to fear and anger. The intent of moving the ark to Jerusalem wasn't to diminish the blessing to one person, but to increase it for all the people of Israel, in- cluding Obed-Edom, by fol- lowing God's Will, placing it in the city where it was sup- posed to be, as determined by the casting of lots in the days of Joshua. The verse should remind us to be happy for others when they receive a bless- ing from God, and share our blessings from God with others. The greatest bless- ing we could ever have is the presence of the Lord in our lives. Sharing Him through our attitudes and actions can bless others and lead them to open the door for a con- versation about what a rela- tionship with the Lord can be like.

Then Jesus said to his dis- ciples, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul" (Matthew 16:24- 26, NLT)? • Prayer school/outreach Investment Opportunity this Wednesday evening from 6:30 -8 p.m. • Men's Ministry this Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. • Youth group, Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. for sixth- 12th grades. • Ladies 'Art in the Park' on Saturday, June 27, at 10 :30 a.m. Join us for paint- ing and fellowship.

Study the Bible. Re- deem your time. Avoid temp- tation. Pray without ceasing. Be sure your profession and your practice are per- fectly consistent with each other (Ephesians 4:1). Be careful how you con- sider impulses and impres- sions as leading of the Spirit. Don't be obsessed with just one aspect of your Chris- tian life (Hebrews 12:14). Don't try to attract spe- cial attention to your talents. Stand up for Jesus. Avoid evil speaking. Avoid a cen- soring, faultfinding spirit. Be kind and longsuffering to those who have not attained to your state of grace.
