Do not Refuse God's Wisdom | Ep. 3 of Probing the Proverbs Podcast Series
Welcome back to the CCFS Counseling Conversations Podcast.    This is Episode 3 of a new series titled, Probing the Proverbs. The third episode will probe Proverbs Chapter 1, verses 20-33 (NIV) _____________ 20 Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; 21 on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech: 22 "How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? 23 Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings. 24 But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, 25 since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, 26 I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you-- 27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. 28 "Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, 29 since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD. 30 Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, 31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. 32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; 33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm."

Peer Pressure | Ep. 2 of Probing the Proverbs Podcast Series
Welcome back to the CCFS Counseling Conversations Podcast.   This is Episode 2 of a new series titled, Probing the Proverbs. The first episode will probe Proverbs Chapter 1, verses 1-7 (NIV) _____________ 8 Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, 9 for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck. 10 My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. 11 If they say, "Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood; let us ambush the innocent without reason; 12 like Sheol let us swallow them alive, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; 13 we shall find all precious goods, we shall fill our houses with plunder; 14 throw in your lot among us; we will all have one purse"-- 15 my son, do not walk in the way with them; hold back your foot from their paths, 16 for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood. 17 For in vain is a net spread in the sight of any bird, 18 but these men lie in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives. 19 Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain; it takes away the life of its possessors.

8 Meditations During COVID 19 [Part 2 of 2]
INTRODUCTION: What sort of way are prone to think in the midst of a crisis.  COVID-19 is not the greatest crisis we can face.  It's a crisis, but not the greatest crisis.  But it does bring us to the threshold of the prospect of the greatest crisis, which is the prospect of death apart from God. And so where we stand with God on the day of our death is the most important question you will have. So thinking about righteousness in the midst of a crisis, this is what a mature Christian does.  TITLE 8 Things to Meditate on During COVID-19  [Part 2 of 2] TIMELINE Intro: 1:04 All That God has Done: 1:30 The Call of God in Christ: 3:20 We Will Live Even When We Die: 5:25 God Himself: 7:05 Conclusion: 10:43     Suicide Prevention Hotline Information 1-800-273-8255 MISSION OF CCFS Christian Counseling Family Services offers professional clinical counseling services from a Christian worldview.   WEBSITE Please feel free to check out CCFS online at https://ccfamilyservices.com/ TWITTER You may also follow CCFS on twitter: https://twitter.com/ccfamilyserve CONTACT If you want to find out if counseling is right for you, please do not hesitate to reach out directly.  PHONE (203) 806-9763 EMAIL edward.ruiz@ccfamilyservices.com Thank you so much for visiting.  I look forward to connecting with you.

Passion Week Saturday Devotional (Snippet)
If you can put yourself back in the 1st century, on that Good Friday, and if you can sit in the shoes of his disciples or his mother or his enemies or even the political authorities of the day, where do you think you might most align? Would you be like his enemies where your doubts and cynicism about Jesus were confirmed by his death: he really wasn’t God after all! Would you play politics, straddling both sides of the fence: May he is, Maybe he isn’t.
