Giving Thanks For The Bible On The Internet

An online bible has come in so handy for us so many times.  I need a verse about encouragement, sorrow, celebration or any other topic and it is so handy to be able to search the bible by topic and get a list of corresponding verses. 

Spark had an assignment in his curriculum to write a little essay about some sort of good stewardship with a verse to  support his idea.  He wrote about being a good steward of his time.  His essay is as follows.

Time Management by Spark

1 Corinthians 9:26-27  So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified

Stewardship is the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care.   Stewardship of your time means getting up early and not watching television.    Do chores and school right away when you get up so you have time to get everything done.   The bible says not to “run aimlessly” and  “box as one beating the air” that means make a  plan so you use time the best way.
A person only has so much time in their day or week or life.  You don’t know what will happen next  so use your time now wisely.   Like taking care of your garden in the morning instead of later when it might be raining or the same with mowing the lawn.

It is so nice to have that at our fingertips. My son is always coming in to tell me what he has found on the Hebrew to English translation about the Bible. We are so blessed to have all of this at our fingertips every day. Though I still love my Bible that I sit with on my lap. I love the sound and smell of the paper.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

I have yet to take the time to find the Bible on line, but have thought I need to find a website. I enjoyed the thoughts by Mr Sparks on time management.
Thanks for sharing.
