“All Better Now. . .”

“For better or worse,” “Better late or never,” “Better safe than sorry. . .” We use the word “better” all of the time! Last week, I did the Scripture Writing Schedule from 2.1 on “Better.” I loved it! You might be surprised to find out that the memory verse for that week was Matthew 6:26, “Behold, the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are you not much better than they?” Every night, I’d think, “Are you not much better than they?”

One verse that is haunting that includes the word “better” is II Peter 2:21, “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the hold commandment delivered unto them.” That’s one thing that’s not better. The other verses were positive and included Ecclesiastes 4:9, “Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor.” Work does go so much easier and faster when shared. Another verse was, “A good name is better than precious ointment and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.” (Ecclesiastes 7:1) Paul struggled with the desire to continue his work and the desire to go on to heaven. “For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart and to be with Christ which is far better.” (Philippians 1:23) He also wrote, “But I have used none of these things; neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that my man should make my glorying void.” (I Corinthians 9:15) Yes, heaven will definitely be better! Hebrews 1:4 tells us about Christ who “being made so much better than the angels as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”

I felt better every night last week – Do you feel better? I hope so! God Bless, Courtney
