This week’s tornado disaster in Moore, Oklahoma reminds us how dependent we are on God and each other. As we continue to pray for the victims, let us also provide the natural support where we are able to. It’s times like these when the world will know the disciples of Christ by the love we show one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. – John 13:35 KJV
The thoughts and prayers and support of Bible or Not go out to all those affected. For those who have been looking, here are some organizations that are on the ground on Moore, OK providing the desperately needed support for this devastated community.

|Today is the National Day of Prayer, thank God. Did you know that this day is recognized by federal law? Public Law 100-307 calls on the President of the United States to declare, each year, that the first Thursday in May be a national day of prayer.|
And so today President Obama issued a proclamation for a national day of prayer to be observed by this great nation, thank God again.
“Pray without ceasing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17
There are many of you who have set aside today as a day of prayer, thank God yet again, we are still one nation under God. So as you pray in your homes, and in your churches, as you pray in your cars and in your closets, as you pray with your families and friends and neighbors, and with your brothers and sisters, may God richly bless you. And may God bless America.

Raising children is no easy task. We try our best to do right by God, and to do right by our children, hoping that they grow up to be responsible and Godly adults. We can find good counsel in the Bible to help us, where we learn that it is important to discipline our children, yet there is a balance so that we do not discourage them.
“Spare the rod and spoil the child” – Samuel Butler, 17th Century Poet
We have all heard the quote “spare the rod and spoil the child”, and I’d venture to guess that most of us have thought it came right from the Bible. You might even be reading this right now, sure that it’s wrong, and searching your Bible to find the proof. I had heard it many times before: “spare the rod, spoil the child, it’s in the Bible”.
The actual quote was written by Samuel Butler, a 17th century poet, but it is likely inspired from the Bible verse in Proverbs 13:24, “Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.” Very close in meaning but they are not exactly the same; perhaps Samuel Butler was just concisely paraphrasing the meaning.
So the next time someone tells you it’s Bible, you know that it’s NOT really.
