Today may be a day of great blessing...

Only 284 days to the year 2019

Scripture Of The Day

A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
Proverbs 1:5

Read The Bible In a Year

Joshua 13-15 ; Luke 1:57-80

Thoughts For The Day

"Nothing is so common-place as to wish to be remarkable."

"The greatest evil which fortune can inflict on men is to endow them with small talents and great ambition."

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Motivation For The Day

Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.

On This Day

Nothing happened today :)

Personal Story Of The Day

If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
Matthew 19:21

References from Matthew 6:19-21

Where do you store your treasure? Do you keep it in a piggy bank or in a vault? Do you bury it in a hole in the back yard? The answer may depend upon who you are and what you value. A child may be inclined to put treasures in a piggy bank or just keep them in his pocket, especially if that treasure is a pet frog! A dog likes to bury his treasures, usually bones, in the back yard. Most of us, because we prefer the security of a vault, keep our treasure in the bank.

In todays scripture, Jesus tells us of an even safer place and urges us to keep our treasures there. He also encourages us to concentrate our efforts on a certain kind of wealth. We find success by storing treasures in heaven. The problem with earthly treasures is that they are subject to decay and theft. Our investments diminish in value and our possessions break. That new car that seemed to give us so much pleasure yesterday just seems like a vehicle today. But the treasures we store in heaven are different. They do not lose their value and cannot decay (v20). They are kept for us and will provide lasting pleasure throughout eternity.

How, then, do we do this? Even if we discovered a way to carry our life savings into heaven, so that we arrived there with our pockets stuffed with cash, what good would that do? Our paper money would be useless there. Our stocks, bonds, and even our gems would have no value. In order for earthly wealth to do us any good, it must first be converted into the kind of currency that has value in heaven. First Timothy 6:1819 reveals how to do thisdoing good and being rich in good deeds, generous, and willing to share. In this way, the apostle Paul explains, Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. (1 Tim. 6:19).

If you wanted to keep track of your earthly wealth, you would probably look at your bank statement. It would tell you how many deposits you had made in the past month and give you your current balance. What does your earthly bank statement tell you about what your heavenly bank statement might look like? Can you see practical ways that you have chosen to lay up treasures in heaven? Take a few moments to pray and ask God to show you how you can make investments in His kingdom this week.

Jokes Of The Day

Further ramblings on marriage...


Any married man should forget his mistakes, there's no use in two
people remembering the same thing.


Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.

Three little boys were looking for a summer job. Their pastor needed some
people to go around and sell bibles so the preacher hired two boys without
even thinking twice. He was hesitant about hiring the third boy because he
suffered from a speech impediment but decided to give him a go.
After the first day's work they all met back at the church. The pastor
looked at the first boy and asked him, "How many bibles did you sell?"
The boy stood up and said, "35."
"Is that all you sold?" the pastor asked.
"He looked at the second boy and asked him the same thing. The boy said,
"75." "That's good," the pastor replied.
He didn't want to ask the third boy, but did. The boy with the speech
impediment said ''I-I-I s-s-sold 175.''

The pastor was amazed and asked the boy how he sold all of the bibles.

He said ''I-I-I t-t-told them to b-b-buy t-t-them or I w-w-w-ould r-r-read
it to t-t-them'''


An older couple had a son, who was still living with his parents. The parents were a little worried, as the son was still unable to decide about his career path... so they decided to do a small test.

They took a ten-dollar bill, a Bible, and a bottle of whiskey, and put them on the front hall table. Then they hid, hoping he would think they weren't at home.

The father told the mother, "If he takes the money he will be a businessman, if he takes the Bible he will be a priest - but if he takes the bottle of whiskey, I'm afraid our son will be a drunkard."

So the parents took their place in the nearby closet and waited nervously. Peeping through the keyhole they saw their son arrive home. He saw the note they had left, saying they'd be home later. Then, he took the 10-dollar bill, looked at it against the light, and slid it in his pocket.

After that, he took the Bible, flicked through it, and took it also.

Finally, he grabbed the bottle, opened it, and took an appreciative whiff to be assured of the quality. Then he left for his room, carrying all the three items.

The father slapped his forehead, and said: "Darn, it's even worse than I ever imagined..."

"What do you mean?" his wife inquired.

"Our son is going to be a politician!" replied the concerned father.

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

Coyotes can't resist a tasty sheep dinner. That's why a number of years ago researchers experimented with about 500 different chemicals to develop a solution to spray on sheep that would make them "coyote proof." A compound that tasted like spicy hot sauce offered the most promise.

Scientists theorized that if the tests were successful, coyotes might lose their taste for sheep. If that were to happen, the temptation that makes coyotes a public nuisance in sheep country would be gone, and man would become the wild dog's best friend.

Sometimes I wonder why God didn't do something like that in the Garden of Eden. Why didn't He make the tree of the knowledge of good and evil bear ugly fruit? Why didn't He surround it with a chain-link fence with barbed wire at the top? Why did God even create the tree in the first place? Part of the answer, I believe, is that temptation to do evil brought Adam and Eve face to face with the ultimate moral question: Would they show confidence in their Creator and lovingly obey Him with all their heart?

We face a similar test every day. What are we going to do? Will we flunk the test? Or will we trust God completely and obey His commands?


To the Gentiles

And he said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.
Acts 22:21

After his conversion Paul returned to the temple, where he thought he would be warmly received. Everyone knew that he had been present at the stoning of Stephan. But Jesus had other plans. Jesus knows where our gifts are best suited. He knows where people are ready to receive and where there is resistance. He knows where there is potential for fruit, and He wants us to go out and bear fruit that lasts.

Jesus said to Paul, Depart, for I will send you far from here to the Gentiles. Peter had opened the door to the Gentiles, but Paul would become the apostle to the Gentiles. He, a learned Pharisee, familiar with both the law and the chief priests, was sent to the Roman soldiers, the philosophers in Athens, the harlots in Corinth and the idol worshippers at Ephesus.

Peter, on the other hand, the unschooled fisherman from Galilee, was sent to Jerusalem, the stronghold of the religious elite. Jesus knows what He is doing. He does not waste talent; He knows in which environment our gifts will be best used. He knows in which setting we do not trust in our own gifts, talents, abilities and past experience but have to rely on God in order to succeed. Paul had the inner conviction, strength, and passion to break through walls that hindered the gospel from becoming established in the Roman Empire.

He was called to turn Rome upside down, and Jesus promised he would preach before Caesar. Several hundred years later, Rome no longer existed, but the gospel had spread to the entire world. Imagine if Paul had refused to go, opting instead to pursue some convenient little plan of his own.
