Well Happy Thursday to you. Hey, I have a question. Do you know at what temperature the Fahrenheit & Celsius measurement both match? Well you are right it is at -40 degrees. They both have different 0 degrees but they match at -40 degrees. That’s quite a puzzle. Did you know that we are 1 of 3 countries still using the Fahrenheit scale? You ask why? Because we haven’t adopted the metric system. Well so much for Nerdsville discussion. Ha ha

Our meditation for today is found in Prov. 20:16 “Get security from someone who guarantees a stranger’s debt. Get a deposit if he does it for foreigners.”

In order to understand this bit of honey (wisdom) we must understand the difference between the definition of stranger & foreigner.

Stranger- someone who is not a

natural born citizen of

your country but has

taken the steps to

become a citizen

Foreigner-a person presently

living in your country

but has no intention of

becoming a citizen

Notice the instruction is:

to charge interest and require a

security for your loan extended

to a stranger, or for a stranger.

to require a deposit,(secured

loan) something of equal value

to loan, as well as, interest for a

foreigner, or on behalf of a


Three concepts referred to here is 1) don’t charge interest to a

Jewish citizen.

2) do charge interest to a

stranger (non Jew) and require

a security deposit (coat, ring)

3) do require interest & a deposit

of equal value to your loan to a

foreigner (gold crown, sheep

herd, etc.)

In other words the principle set out here:

1) it isn’t ungodly to require

personal responsibility.

2) commitment to a nation has

direct connection to how a

person is extended trust.

If we as individuals & a nation we’re to follow these principles it would be a much more secure world.

So Go With God and He will uphold your concerns for your secular investments. These principles are a testimony of how we should be committed to our treatment of worldly concerns. They are also a reminder of how our concerns for this life are directly connected with our testimony to the unbelieving world.

So take seriously your handling of the present age for it is a

reflection on our eternal viewpoint.
