Daily Wisdom 161: Proverbs 8:18

Proverbs 8:18 (NKJV) — 18 Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness.

Genuine riches. While wisdom is more desirable than gold, silver, and rubies, by her a person can receive riches and honor. In particular, she grants the truly durable riches, which include such things as peace, joy, and love. By contrast, earthly, material riches will not last.

James 5:1–3 (NKJV) — 1 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.


The book is in!


When I stepped out on our front porch this morning to retrieve our weekly order of Blue Apron meals (which Susan and I highly recommend), I noticed a second box. I knew what it was when I saw the return address. The box contained six hardbound copies of my new book, The Holy Spirit: A Commentary!



I have been posting about this book for some time. It began in the latter part of 2018 when I was in the process of writing. I announced the completion of my work in the spring of 2019 and kept you up to date throughout the editing process.

During the last few days, I posted about an interview with Kaleb Saucer and plans to make the interview one of the seminars that will be available at the upcoming seventy-fifth general conference of the United Pentecostal Church International.

A few days ago, I posted a review of the book written by Stan Gleason, assistant general superintendent of the Western Zone of the UPCI and pastor of The Life Church in Kansas City, Missouri.

Now that the printing of the book is finished (it will also be available as an ebook), it should soon available at pentecostalpublishing.com, as a Kindle download at amazon.com, and as an Apple Book.

I pray the book will be a blessing to all who read it.
