Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 23

Life’s Rainstorms

Philippians 4:11

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

I love fishing. Catching fresh food is great, and I love the beauty and variety God has created. Even if I’m not catching, it’s exhilarating just being out there. I love fishing; but I hate being chewed up by bugs. Gnats in the Adirondacks; no-see-ums in Florida, and mosquitoes everywhere! Well, into everyone’s life some rain must fall.

That’s not scripture, but here’s what the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:11: “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” So, rather than complain about the bugs, I rejoice in being able to fish and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 22

God is All We Need

Hebrews 13:5

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

How many times have you been disappointed by someone or something? Maybe a plan you had didn’t work out. A thing you thought would last a long time suddenly broke. Someone you trusted let you down. Life is filled with disappointments. That’s why we ought not hold onto this world too tightly, or love it too dearly.

Paul mentioned in Hebrews 13:5, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have; for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” In other words, God is all we need to make things right.
