Why Gems for Living?

Proverbs 3:13-15 (NIV)

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.  She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.

Gems for living…….That’s what I have discovered in 48 years of being a Christian, over 40 as a minister.  Gems are nuggets of truth from the Bible – often brief passages of a verse or two – that have shown me secrets of living the Christian life.  They shouldn’t be secrets at all.  These gems should be in every believer’s possession.  So God has led me to start this website, and blog these truths to help growing Christians escape the pitfalls and potholes into which I have too often fallen.  May my struggles in climbing out of pits and holes by the nuggets of truths I’ve learned bless others to grow up into Christ more quickly and completely than did I.  This is my prayer……..

Rev. Dr. D. W. “Chip” Norton
