Re: Chaplains Corner
I read that the end-of-the-world preacher has granted us a five month reprieve.
Another math mistake, I guess -
What part of "No man knows the day or the hour" doesn't he understand?

To the thought for today:
Every one of us should do some self searching now and then. It is a good way to discover hidden faults, because even your best friends are unlikely to tell you about them. One important question for a person to ask themselves as they review their past life is; Have I built castles in the sand? Will my life-work endure over the years after I have departed this earthly life? Has there been anything immortal in it, which will survive the usual ravages of time? The children build castles in the sand at the beach, and in a few hours the tide removes every trace of them. Will it be so with my work, or will the works that I have carved outlast even the stone records of history?
The Word of God tells us:
Matthew 25:31, 34-40 (KJV);
"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: . . . Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
1 Corinthians 3:12-14 (KJV);
"Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward."
Am I building stone fortresses, or sand castles?
God bless each of you -
