Headlines from the Cost of War for Monday, January 8, 2018
I recently discovered a new website. It is http://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/. I encourage you to check out the website and discover what war has cost the United States since September 11, 2001. You will also find a well researched map of nations where our country is fighting a war on terror.
As you pray, contrast the cost of war with the instructions of Jesus.
Readings from Proverbs for Monday, January 8, 2018
Jesus is widely believed to be the wisest person to have ever walked the face of the earth. Mahatma Gandhi was not a Christian, but he followed Jesus’ teachings. In fact, he memorized the Sermon on the Mount and occasionally quoted from it in its entirety. Gandhi was aware of the value of charting the course of his life by Jesus’ teachings.
Proverbs 9.9 – Give instruction to the wise, and they will become wiser still; teach the righteous and they will gain in learning.
