7-28-2016 – A Word to the Wise: Violations of our body—as the result of improper diet, inadequate exercise, and the use of known harmful substances—account for a majority of the admissions to medical and psychiatric facilities. Most violations are of known rules, laws, ordinances, and instructions.

7-21-2016 – A Word to the Wise: Proverbs 7:12 warns that the immoral person will testify to others his hatred of discipline, and will serve as a witness to others of the ruin that comes from disdain of discipline. This is no small problem, for without discipline, poor decision-making, accidents, rebellion, and a host of other problems affect the person. When we refuse to place ourselves under lawful authority and when we challenge every rule, law, or custom, hostility and transgression hang on us like a deep fog.

7-18-2016 – A Word to the Wise: Obedience or lack of it affects practically everything we do. Failure in this area is most evident in the “accident” rate of any society. Traffic accidents are a prime example. Notice how the majority of all accidents result from the failure to obey a rule, law, ordinance, or known truth. The majority of traffic accidents, which account for more than 45,000 deaths per year, are preventable. Simply obeying the rules results in an increased life span.

7-8-2016 – The Dallas Police Reserve Foundation needs your help. During the course of the shooting last night these are the alerts sent to Reserves:
 
UPDATE: The Dallas Police department has gone to Alpha Bravo 12 hour shifts. There are no assignments for Reserves currently and not enough equipment for full-time officers. Per Chief Brody, you should standby and if we are needed we will contact you with more details.
 
The reality they needed 60 Reserve officers to report to the substations to answer calls for service all over the city since the downtown area was flooded with officers because of the shooting. Why could they not respond? THE CITY IS OUT OF VEHICLES.
Sixty Reserve officers sat at home dressed for action because of the lack of equipment.
 
If you watch any of the news channels they continually reported calls for service, shooting, robberies, break ins that were occurring all over the city and response was exceedingly slow. This has been going on for months. The Reserves need their own vehicles so as not to drain what few resources of the city. The problem is each of these fully equipped vehicles cost $60,000. If you are able to help, donations should be sent to: Dallas Police Reserve Foundation, 5100 North O’Connor Blvd., Irving, Tv, 75039.
 
All donations are tax deductible
Reserve Officer, Dr. Jerry Stettheimer, R031

7-6-2016 – IV. Reason – Proverbs 6:32 “He who commits immorality has no sense; he who does it destroys himself.” What does it mean to have no sense? Prov. 6:32, 7:7, 9:16. It refers to a state of confusion existing within the person. Confusion combined with frustration leads to blindness (seeing but not seeing) and double mindedness. This confusion leads to a multitude of “accidents.” In reality, many accidents are the result of defective reasoning rooted in immorality.

7-1-2016 – A Word to the Wise: In 35 years of counseling, half of which were in a state mental institution (as a therapist, not as my wife suspects, a patient), I have never had a person spontaneously admit to having an abortion. The self-shame attached to this act is severe. The reason of omission cannot be the presence of the therapist. Clients’ admit to everything else. Nor is the silence limited to the women who get abortions. Doctors, nurses, and others working in this atmosphere of death are very reluctant to admit this as a livelihood.
