Verbal Punches

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!”—James 3:5   “Cold words freeze people, and hot words scorch them, and bitter words make them bitter, and wrathful words make them wrathful.

Do You Want To Be Healed?

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.     38 years in a bed.  Next to a pool.  Sounds relaxing doesn’t it?  But as we read on, the story says the man was alone and horribly crippled.  Probably twisted feet, pencil thin legs and atrophied muscles barely covered by a thin blanket.  Why?  Because this was the pool of Bethesda near the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem.  There was something miraculous about this pool.  Periodically the water stirred, and the first one into it was instantly healed. ...

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34, NKJ   Do you have trouble sleeping? When you lay your head on your pillow at night does your mind continue to reel with thoughts of your day, things on your to do list, problems that may or may not come to pass?

Laugh Again

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand” Mark Twain   Kids smile an average of 45 times an hour, and they will “belly laugh” 1 time every 7.5 minutes.  By the time we become an adult that drops to 15 times a day.  In hospitals it is nearly 0.  When was the last time you had a good laugh? The popular saying, “Laughter is the best medicine” is not actually a bible quote.  However, the concept comes directly out of the book of Prov...
