A few may cry foul with this Series, but rest assured the principles are being reviewed and compared for clarification in the Word of God, the Bible, as the measuring stick of Righteousness and Truth.
- Never put off till to-morrow what you can do to-day.
- Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
- Never spend your money before you have it.
- Never buy what you do not want, because it is cheap; it will be dear to you.
- Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
- We never repent of having eaten too little.
- Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
- How much pain have cost us the evils which have never happened.
- Take things always by their smooth handle.
- When angry, count ten, before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.
It is widely known that Thomas Jefferson was most likely a Deist, as he is identified in most writings of the time, but it has been shown that he attended church services on a regular basis. Even when it would not have been profitable for him in a “supporters” eye to attend, he continued, thus giving an indication that he may have very well become a Christian after all. We’ll not know for certain on this side of Eternity, but his “Observation in Practical Life” is something we can find in the Bible as being guiding principles we can live by today, just as they lived by them hundreds of years ago.
