Verse of the Day

Quote for today ...

“Water which is distant is no good for a fire which is near.”
-Apples of Gold

Ran across this verse today ... it's my new fav of the day.

I have been trying to get back into Wednesday night Bible study preparation since my Church has been taking the past several to host a health and wellness class. I have found that it has made me idle in studying. This verse however has stoked the fire again.

To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
1 Cor 9:22 (KJV)

Commentary about this verse that really brought this home to me.
... the example of St. Paul, attend to the end he had in view, and the manner in which he pursued that end. It was not to get money, influence, or honor, but to save SOULS! It was not to get ease but to increase his labors. It was not to save his life, but rather that it should be a sacrifice for the good of immortal souls!
—Adam Clarke's Commentary
