Who Can I Help Today?

Only 274 days to the year 2024

Scripture Of The Day

Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. James 5:8.

Read The Bible In a Year

Judges 16-18; Luke 7:1-30.

Thoughts For The Day

Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lie before you.

If you are to be, you must begin by assuming responsibility. You alone are responsible for every moment of your life, for every one of your actions.

Not every successful man is a good father. But every good father is a successful man.

Motivation For The Day

If you have a goal in life that takes a lot of energy, that requires a lot of work, that incurs a great deal of interest and that is a challenge to you, you will always look forward to waking up to see what the new day brings.

Personal Story Of The Day

Love Is Blinding

Infatuation has its own bag of tricks. We rightly call it "falling in love," or being "love sick," but it has all the traits of short-circuiting the brain. Bing Crosby used to sing: "I climbed up the door and opened the stairs because you kissed me, goodnight." And she responded, "I powdered my hair and pinned up my nose because you kissed me, goodnight."

We often relegate God to more serious matters, and forget that He has created us to have this wonderful, childlike attraction to the opposite sex.

In the Song of Solomon the very first lines say, "Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. Because of the savour of thy good ointments (perfume)thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee. Draw me, we will run after thee:"

This first stage of romance (Attraction and Courtship) makes one:
- sweetly giddy (as with wine).
- focused on only one person (fascinated with his name).
- have heightened senses (savour... smell, sight, hearing, touch, taste).
- have a competitive spirit for the other's time and affection.
- have a passion to shower the other with gifts.
- childish in behavior (when times were safe, loving, and carefree). Often accompanied by "sweet talk" and little games).
- have a strong desire to elope, in a hurry.

I have heard many complain that not much is written in the Bible about dating or courtship. Well, there may not be many stories, but there is no better Guide than the Song of Solomon...for the way a man is to treat a woman...and a woman is to respond to her man.

Today, may we have a Godly jealousy for our partners, and enjoy the wonder of falling in love for the first time... or for the nth time!

Jokes Of The Day

Childhood: The time of life when you make funny faces in the mirror.

Middle Age: The time of life when the mirror gets even."


A mother skunk was always in a panic because she couldn't keep track of her two tiny ones. One was named Out and the other In. When Out was in, In was out. One day she saw Out but couldn't find In. She told Out to go out and bring In in. In about twenty seconds, Out brought In in. Surprised, the mother skunk asked, "How did you find him so fast?" The tiny skunk answered, "It was easy. In stinct!"


After the revival had concluded, the three pastors were discussing the results with one another.
The Methodist minister said, "The revival worked out great for us! We gained four new families."
The Baptist preacher said, "We did better than that! We gained six new families."
The Presbyterian pastor said, "Well, we did even better than that! We got rid of our 10 biggest trouble makers!"

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

Freed For Service

For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. John 13:15. References from John 13:1-17.

Jesus not only taught about discipleship, He explained it in countless ways. We can find much to imitate from this familiar chapter (v14-17).

One lesson is humility. 
On this evening, the disciples seemed concerned about which of them was the greatest (see Luke 22:24). What a rebuke Jesus actions must have been to them! He did not stride automatically to the place of honour at the table. Instead, He did the menial job a servant would normally do. Despite being the Son of God, standing on the verge of accomplishing His sacrifice of redemption, and having all power, He washed their feet.

Another lesson here is service. 
Given the disciples' sandals and the dusty roads, foot washing was a practical necessity in that place and time. But none of them had volunteered to meet the need, so Jesus took the initiative and did it.

Still another lesson is love. 
Jesus was motivated by Godly love for His disciples. 'Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them unto the end' (v1). This was one of His final chances to teach or show them something important about the kingdom of God. It may have been His very last chance with Judas (v11).

One final lesson to be found in this passage is faith. 
Jesus had an unshakeable faith in God's plan; He knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God (v3). His perfect faith gave Him perfect peace, and so there was no shame or insecurity in stepping down as He did. On the contrary, because of His confidence in God He did not need to assert or exalt Himself. Faith frees us for humility and service! Who are we going to serve today???

The Synagogue in Nazareth

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias... Luke 4:16-17...

Jesus grew up in the obscure village of Nazareth. It was a remote and dusty place, hardly worthy of mention, far away from the main roads and the influence of the larger cities. Small town mentality, prejudice and curiosity were the typical product of limited experience. 'Can anything good come out of Nazareth?' Everyone knew everyone, and no one was considered exceptional. A collective net of unbelief seemed to envelop each and every person. No one was to rise above another. Full potentials were rarely achieved in this suffocating atmosphere. That Mary even remained in Nazareth, despite the reputation she acquired concerning the birth of Jesus, demonstrated how strong she really was.

Then came the day when Jesus stepped forward. All eyes were upon Him. Rumors about Him had spread, especially since His baptism by John. Now He stood there. Everyone knew Him, yet they did not really know Him. Everyone had an opinion of Him, His life and family. Nonetheless everyone felt slightly insecure. The primitive function, control and acceptance that keeps small societies together, ensuring that everyone plays his assigned role, no longer applied. All of a sudden Jesus no longer fitted in. It was not only what He quoted from Isaiah but also His commentary of the text. This Scripture applied here and now, and it applied to Him.

From every corner of the synagogue, people gave voice to their rage. Their rejection of the truth was immediate. The people even wanted to push Jesus off a cliff. The light shone too brightly; unbelief was rudely exposed. The truth became too uncomfortable. But on the wings of opposition, Jesus was lifted onward. His real identity was in heaven, not in Nazareth. His family included everyone who was willing to obey Him. The opposition against him became the starting point for God's plan for Him. The lack of understanding in Nazareth became the open door to a bigger, wider world.

Facts Of The Day

There are 142,000 recognized species of moths, and scientists estimate that there are thousands more yet to be discovered.

In early America, simple wooden beds and straw mattresses were the rule in all but the wealthiest of homes. American inns during the Revolutionary War era were not lush or comfortable, and an innkeeper would think nothing of requesting that a guest share his bed with a stranger when accommodations became scarce.

Closing Thought

Lord, slow me down, give me time to enjoy my walk, time to spend with my family and friends... time to meditate on our relationship, time to fellowship.
