Ward Shope – Habakkuk 2:6-20
Acquisition: An acquisition is when one company purchases most or all of another company’s shares to gain control of that company. Acquisitions, which are very common in business, may occur with the target company’s approval, or in spite of its disapproval.
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup with foaming wine, well mixed, and he pours out from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs.
Lifeless idols approached in clamor are silent, while the living God, approached in silence and reverence speaks.
But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him.”
If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
4 The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven;
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
