Just What the Doctor Ordered

I thought this was a great list of 'Biblical Resolves for the Post-Health Care Reform Environment' we now find ourselves in, posted by Dr. George Grant  on his blog this week.

1. Pray more.
"Pray without ceasing." 1 Thessalonians 5:17

2. Listen first.
"Be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger." James 1:19

3. Work harder.
"Work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." Colossians 3:23

4. Serve others.
"Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

5. Defend life.
"Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter." Proverbs 24:11-12

6. Grumble less.
"Do not grumble against one another; behold, the Judge is standing at the door." James 5:9

7. Do justice.
"Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream." Amos 5:24

8. Love mercy.
"He has shown you, O man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you: but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8

9. Walk humbly.
"The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor." Proverbs 15:33

10. Rejoice always.
"Rejoice always." 1 Thessalonians 5:16

11. Trust Jesus.
"Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns." Revelation 19:6
