Sabbath a'Brakel: Prudence

Prudence is a great virtue which is greatly praised and highly recommended in the Word of God, and is given as an extraordinary gift to God's children. It is praised as being an extraordinary ornament: "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock" (Mat. 7:24); "Who then is a faithful and wise servant...blessed is that servant...Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods" (Mat. 24:45-47) [IV: 132].

-Good news: I have my A' Brakel set out and accessable so I can check the sense of what he means by prudence.

-Speaking of prudence, Nate, do you know anything about helium.com ?

-I noticed in the 'Presbyterian Thoughts' title background that the works of Kipling are there. Wodehouse was a fan of his work, I believe.

-What's with the 'For Christ's Crown and Covenant' banner?

-Kipling because I cannot get my old banner back.

-I have never seen the site, but it looks pretty cool.

-The Crown and Covenant banner is from the old Presbyterians in Scotland...
