A Word From Joe Barnett

This site is about words.
First, about God’s authoritative, inspired Word.
Second, about my non-authoritative, non-inspired words—nevertheless, written in hope that they will encourage those who read them, and above all that they will point the reader to God’s Word.

Here are the regular features you will find here.

  • Today’s Walk in the Word. A brief devotional that appears Monday through Friday. Each entry is based on a single verse of Scripture, followed by my comments related to it, and ending with a summary aphorism. To access the latest devotional click on "Today’s Walk in the Word" below. To access previous messages click on "Archives/A Walk in the Word" in the top menu.
  • On My Mind. Messages on varied topics that appear on this site at least once a month. To access the latest entry click on "On My Mind" below. To access previous messages click on "Archives/On My Mind" in the top menu.

Each of these features can also be fed directly to your email box if you wish. Just click here to sign up.

And yes, you are permitted—in fact, encouraged—to pass along any of these messages to those you feel will benefit from them. Just click on the “Forward to a Friend” button. Your participation in this way makes this “our” ministry instead of “my” ministry.

If you find anything here that brings you, or those with whom you share these messages, into a closer relationship with the Lord, I praise God and thank him for permitting our paths to cross.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you will do so often.

Words Have Consequences

Be sensible and watch what you say.                    —Proverbs 10:19 A lady kept badgering her husband to get their kaput lawnmower repaired. Finally, fed up with being ignored, she hatched a plan. When he came home from work, she was sitting in the grass, snipping away with …

Strategy for Misery

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge.                         —Leviticus 19:18 Revenge makes about as much sense as biting a dog because the dog bit you. Holding a grudge hurts no one except the one who nurses it. It doesn’t damage the person we …

The memory of the righteous will be a blessing.  —Proverbs 10:7 The Broadway church in Lubbock, Texas, was 100 years old in 1991.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment.              —1 Peter 3:3 When Audrey Hepburn was asked to share her “Beauty Tips,” she wrote: “For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. …
