Bible Thoughts by Terry Hedderman

- Tuesday, 7/11/17  Leviticus 11:45, For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. A reminder that we all are to be striving to become holy. Very simply...are you more so than a year ago? What’re you doing to become more so?    

Another Generation

Ecclesiastes 1:4
“One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.”

One thing that every person should realize is that life is short, and that there is another generation that will soon take our place. James 4:14 says, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” As quickly as we go through this life, we should always be cognizant of the fact that another generation is following us. There are several responsibilities we have concerning the next generation.

Don’t Delay

Ecclesiastes 8:11
“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”

One of the training techniques used in training dogs is called marker training. The key to this training technique is to reward or punish the dog at the moment that they do good or bad so that they can mark in their minds what they did so they will know whether or not they should do that action again. If the trainer delays in marking the action, that action, whether good or bad, will not be remembered by the dog; thus, the dog continues its bad habits.
