A profitable day

My sign language class was canceled this morning. My teacher wasn't feeling too well on Tuesday, so I am guessing that she was sick today. It worked out well for me because I was trying to find time to watch a movie for that class so that I could write my paper. I had to watch Mr. Holland's Opus. I wouldn't recommend it. It had some good things, but I did have to do some fast-forwarding. Anyway, it was good to get that over with. I am really looking forward to Christmas break. I read 2 Corinthians 13 today. In verse 11, Paul is throwing in some last minute instructions. I like how it is so full of content.
Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

I am reminded of the following verses:

"brethren, rejoice"
Philippians 4:4 -Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!

"be made complete"
Philippians 1:6 - For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

"be comforted"
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 - Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.

"be like-minded"
Philippians 2:2 - Make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.

"live in peace"
Romans 12:18 - If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
