I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Matthew 10:16 "Look, I am sending you out as sheep amog wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and as harmless as doves.

My Thoughts
Shrewd...I wanted to thin about this verse...I really needed to understand shrewd.... The synomons were

Astute, sharp-wittedsharpsmartacuteintelligentclevercannyperceptive,perspicacioussagaciouswise

informalon the ball, savvyheads-up

"a shrewd businessman would never have been so careless about keeping appointments"

I liked this...To me it said that as Christians out in this world we need to be kind and gentle with people...but we are not to be stupid about people either. We don't have to be trampled on, deceived, taken advantage of. We can make judgments about people's actions without judging. That is our duty  to protect ourselves from harm that can come at us in many forms. We can stop back and assess the situation we are in or the people we are with and make wise choices. It tells me that being kind and loving towards others does not include being stupid about how we are being treated. I can be kind and gentle as I walk away from a bad situation. 

This is just good to know!
