Thank God, It’s Friday.

As usual, there’s a lot to thank God for this week. 

1. Thank you, Lord, for allowing us the continued privilege of reading your word in its original language. It is a great blessing to be able to read the Greek New Testament, and to have the opportunity to teach the language to high schoolers in the fall. 

2. For my wife’s birthday on Wednesday. I couldn’t be happier, Father, that you brought her into this world those many years ago, and that you brought her to me. 

3. For nice walks with my family after dinner.

4. For the two dressers that our landlady gave us for free this week. The bedroom looks so much better now. 

5. For a son who loves to sing.

6. For the blood of Christ, which has allowed me to be ingrafted into the people of God, an heir according to God’s promise, and part of His new Temple. 

7. For a very generous brother who so graciously bought us Dodger tickets and flew out from New York just to go to a couple of games with me and watch my beloved team. 

8. For the Alameda library, which is a great place to study. 

9. For the chance to visit with my family in L.A.

10. For giving us self-control as part of the fruit of the Spirit
