Jack’s Winning Words 6/19/15
“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot.  In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.”  (Oscar Wilde)  Identity theft is a big concern these days.  Don’t give sensitive information to “strangers!”  The Bible gave a warning, too.  “Don’t store up your valuables on earth where burglars can get them, but put them in the place where they’re safe.”  What do you suppose is meant by that?  What are your valuables?    ;-)  Jack

 FROM GOOD DEBT JON:  Yeah, Oscar.... nice====JACK:  Sometimes he comes up with some wilde observations that cause us to pause and think.
FROM TARMART REV:  A hearty "Amen!" from your Amen Corner!!====JACK:  Do people ever shout out, "Amen!" when you are preaching?====REV:  Nowadays, one could count on the fingers of his one hand the "Amen's"  heard probably in any given year . . . the nod of the head, most likely.====JACK:  Nodding might indicate falling asleep.

FROM LBP IN PLYMOUTH:  Also, today I celebrate 16 years of marriage. Finding a partner to share life... Priceless!====JACK:  I just checked...The current price of gold is $1200, per ounce.  A good family life is more "precious" than gold.   You're right!  Priceless.====LBP:  2 songs from my current playlist for your consideration: George Ezra, "Budapest"; Paul Coleman, "The One Thing." ====JACK:  I listened to both.  I like them.  "Budapest" seems to relate to today's WWs.  I kept thinking that the Coleman song related to God's love, even though he was probably interpreting that in the typical way.   
FROM KF IN MICHIGAN:  Treasures in Heaven!  My treasures are my husband and daughters. : ) ====JACK:  Some people spend so much time and effort amassing material things, that they fail to appreciate that which is infinitely more valuable.  You have the right priority.
