9 Suppose a parent would dictate to the child minutely everything he is to do during the day. The child would be stunted under that regime.

14 Today there is a wide measure of agreement, which on the side of Physics approaches almost to unanimity, that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non- mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.

16 In him all things hold together. ~ Colossians 1:17 (TNIV)

17 Mans chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. ~ Westminster Shorter Catechism

19 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. ~ Hebrews 13:5-6 (TNIV)

20 The key to joy is not Gods presents but his presence.
