Treasures from Thomas Sherman
If this is happiness—then give me misery!
“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen, and lived in luxury every day.” Luk 16:19
How apt are many at the sight of a rich worldling—to envy him for what he has. But, for my part, I rather pity him for what he lacks!
He has a talent—but it lacks improvement;
he has a lamp—but it lacks oil;
he has a soul—but it lacks grace;
he has the creature—but he lacks the Creator;
he has a mansion—but he lacks heaven.
In his life, he floats upon a torrent of vanity—which rolls along into an ocean of vexation!
And after death, it will be said of him, “Take this unprofitable servant, bind him hand and foot, and cast him into outer darkness! Consign his soul to the eternal lake of fire and brimstone!”
Where now is the object of your envy?
It is not his gold that can then rescue him,
nor his mansion that can then satisfy him,
nor his friends that can then comfort him.
Therefore, if he is worth the envying—then who can be worth the pitying?

I am very grateful to God for having placed in Costas Stergiou's mind the idea of creating a free program of such excellent quality and so useful for my personal life and for my work in the Lord's work. God bless you dear brother! A big hug from Colombia.

I am from South Africa (Groblersdal), and I would like to extend my astronomical gratitude to "the word" team for their remarkable job on this software let alone making it free for all to access. This is a true act of serving God. I have used this software for almost 4 years and I'm thoroughly impressed by the effort you have put in it. May God continue to bless you in all your future developments.
...Your Fellow Servant of Christ Jesus
Be blessed in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
Greetings from Germany
