    The Lord Jesus Christ knows what 'amen' means - Thank-you, Bruce.
  • Bruce
    You may hear Amen from some, in the church. You would hear this more often a few years back. In Hebrew or Greek it means the same thing. We can pray in his will or ask his will be done. Amen does not mean Thy will be done. The meaning is: so be it, truly, truth. God said it, I believe it. Amen! Let's just stay in the B-I-B-L-E, Amen

    This does and doesn't have to do with this chap. This is a short quote by Tyrone Edwards (1809-1894). quote: "The highest attainment of the spiritual life, is to be able at all times and in all things to say, "thy will be done." That's what "Amen" means. We say it SO OFTEN - without even thinking about what we are saying. God's answer may be just opposite of our prayer. Father knows best ........

    Verse 2 gives good advice regarding making a budget and regarding our donations we may give. It's good to take care of these things first and then any that we may have left over can be used for other purposes.
