    They need to hurry up and arrest Roberts and charge him with pedophilia on Epstein’s island . . . get him to resign . . . and get a real chief justice.

    Daily Bible study is necessary if we are going to begin our day with the right attitude and the right spiritual diet. Proverbs has 31 chapters, and most months have 31 days, so let's read a chapter of Proverbs a day and see what God might have for us. As the Lord leads, share with us what God has shown you in a special way and by His grace let us build up a devotional repository. Let's keep our knives and forks handy for some daily bread! Ideally, a chapter or two of Proverbs will fit in nicely with a good plan of reading our Bibles through each year.

    If anyone would like to be added to the ping list, please let me know either by post or by p.m.

    “A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back” (Proverbs 26:3).

    A fool is a person that walks after their own devices. They really don’t know any better. They have a mind, it is true, but it is not exercised to the point where it can discern clearly the costs of misbehaving. A fool is controlled by his wants. By nature, all children are fools in that sense of the word. A child, left to himself, will only grow up to become more foolish as the years pass, and a wicked person is really only an unrestrained fool: “The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies” (Psalms 58:3).

    In the animal world, where beasts of burdens outweigh their masters by hundreds of pounds, an unruly beast could easily go its own way in disobedience. A horse obeys its owner through the use of a tiny riding crop applied to its rear haunches and the donkey or an ox will plow a straight furrow because of a small device placed in its mouth. Animals have their own agenda, and if left to themselves, they will spend the day chewing on the grass around it. When it is time for work, these little devices see to it that they follow the bidding of the farmer.

    In the case of a young fool, if left to himself, will spend his time in idleness and mischief. They really can’t help it, it is in their nature. As our society progresses (???) one can now see children a young a couple of years old holding I-Phones and game pods, playing the day away. They grow up to sit on a couch all day with a hand-held game device. Our present young generation is losing all perspective when it comes to human relations.

    The tool that God has given parents in the daunting challenge of bringing up a child in the way he should go is here called a “rod.” Notice that the Bible does not say “hand,” as a mode of discipline. The hand is for love and comfort. No part of a human’s body should be used to chasten a child. The discipline should always be administered by an inanimate object.

    Saying this, however, one reason why corporal punishment is effective is because it involves a degree of physical pain. Pain is something that will be remembered. Simply talking to a fool resolves nothing, because a fool will not listen. If a child is taught to equate wrongdoing with pain, they will remember the lesson. Just a word, not so much.

    Both before, and after, corporal punishment is administered both parent and child should pray confessing their faults to God and asking for His forgiveness.

    The most important phase of corporal punishment is reconciliation. After the spanking, and after a short time where the child is left to ponder its ways, both must come together again to be reminded that parent loves child and child loves parent.

    Years later, a child will recall those painful meetings and thank God that he is what he is today because he had parents that loved him enough to see to it that he was corrected and molded in the way he should go as he contemplates the birth of his own child. This is the way that America remains a Christian nation.

    One of the hardest pills to swallow is being a biological parent trying to discipline the YOU out of your child.

    Detective Robert Surgenor wrote a book he called, No Fear. For years he has compiled statistics that indicate that when parents eliminate corporal punishment from their discipline plan, the child grows up with an attitude of “no fear,” even when other areas of discipline are administered, such as taking away privileges and grounding. He maintains that children who are spanked in the context of loving discipline don’t become violent. In contrast, some of the most violent youth never once experienced a spanking. Surely this law enforcement officer’s findings are in keeping with the principles of Scripture.

    This gives a perfect explanation as to why Trump did nothing toward the arrest of all these criminal entities. He knew that he had something big planned, his piece de resistance which would gather them all up in a pretty basket with a ribbon attached.

    “The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable” (Proverbs 25:3).

    Heaven is higher than you can know, and the earth deeper than you can explore. Neither can you know and explore a true king’s heart. He has in his soul – classified information, burdens, plans, threats, knowledge, and wisdom you cannot discover. It is folly and presumption to judge him based on your very limited perspective of national matters.

    Well, God searches them. “The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts” (Proverbs 21:1-2).

    “The heaven for height,” that’s pretty high. Nobody's ever seen to the end of the universe or even been to the end of the universe. I mean, just imagine how big the universe is, and to think about all those millions of light years it takes to get from here to stars and galaxies at the speed of light. It's just unbelievable how immense the universe is.

    “The heaven for height, and the earth for depth,” this shows you, that while the earth is not the farthest thing away from God, it's moving away from God. In relation to God, the earth is deep; in relation to man the heaven is high.

    “. . . and the heart of Kings is unsearchable,” in the sense of men, and of course, in the sense of men the heaven in high and the earth is deep. Nobody has descended into the center of the earth, except spiritual beings, so it's pretty deep for us.

    While true of kings and presidents, the wisdom of this proverb applies to all authority. Fathers make decisions for families that children do not understand. Business owners do things that employees cannot understand, for owners have duties and knowledge in their hearts greater than coffee breaks and punching a time clock. Pastors oversee the flock of God with burdens, convictions, knowledge, and goals unknown to most of the members.

    If you criticize leaders for things you cannot even learn, it is only fair and right that those under your authority rise up in rebellion and reject your decisions. It is only fair and right they disrespect you. It is only fair and right things do not work out in your life, because you accused or criticized a God-appointed ruler knowing more than you could even learn.

    When an individual Jew receives Christ, i.e., believes on the death, the burial and the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), the cycle is broken. Those that reject Jesus Christ continue in the traditions that damn them in the first place. The Jews, as a nation, brought upon themselves a curse from God (lack of His blessings), but as individuals they have a choice to make.

    “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children” (Matthew 27:25).

    And it has. The blood of 6 million of them was shed during WWII, countless millions during the Dark Ages. The Jews accepted the blame, and they will pay for it until the day that they recognize Jesus Christ as their Messiah in the future . . .

    “And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends” (Zechariah 13:6).
