Good Morning!
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.


As you know by now, Congress has passed the $700 billion dollar bailout meant to help the economic crisis of our country.
I am so glad that someone on capital hill is looking out for me.
Included in the bill are some “sweeteners” that’s sure to put a few bucks back in my pocket. (he says tongue-in-cheek)
There are tax credit breaks for such narrowly focused groups as motor sports racetrack owners, film producers and bicycle commuters .
There is a credit allows certain corporations operating in American Samoa a tax credit.
The bailout bill would give a tax break to Exxon Valdez plaintiffs.
A rebate against excise taxes charged on rum imported from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
A proposal would exempt from the excise tax any shaft consisting of all natural wood with no laminations or artificial means to enhance the spine of the shaft used in the manufacture of an arrow that measures 5/16 of an inch or less and is unsuited for use with a bow with a peak draw weight of 30 pounds or more. (I knew someone would get the shaft!)
There is one that allows employers to provide a benefit to employees for costs associated with bicycle commuting, including purchase and repair of a bicycle, bicycle improvements, and bicycle storage.
Transfers interest earned on money in the abandoned mine reclamation fund to the United Mine Workers of America Combined Benefit Fund, which helps pay health benefits for retired miners and their dependents who worked under collective bargaining agreements that promised lifetime health-care benefits. 
Current law allows taxpayers to write-off 50% of the cost of any facility placed in service before January 1, 2013 that produces cellulosic ethanol.  This provision expands the types of facilities that may be written-off to include production of other cellulosic biofuels in addition to cellulosic ethanol.  
You can get the most benefit by being an oily-rum drinking-bow hunting-Hollywood-bicycle commuter working in American Somoa.
God said it best; Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen, and I will tell you where to get food that is good for the soul! Isa 55:2
I’m so thankful someone is looking out for me and it’s God!

 

 

 

Dividing right from wrong

Morning thoughts from Pastor Tim

Good Morning!
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

 

There is a lesson from God’s word that will help you make the right choices.
It is a lesson that will help you discern good from evil.
This can help whether your church is seeking a pastor, mediating a dispute, or voting for president.
And the king said, “Divide the living child in two, and give half to one, and half to the other.”
Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion for her son; and she said, “O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!”
But the other said, “Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him.”
1 Kings 3:25-26
Right and wrong can be determined by who speaks for life and who speaks for destruction.
Watch and listen to those around you!
The ones that speak condemnation are calling for judgment.
Those that speak blessing are calling for mercy.
Is this Biblical?
Refresh your memory by reading John 8:1-11.
