Thoughts For The Day

"Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?"

"Against naked force the only possible defense is naked force. The aggressor makes the rules for such a war; the defenders have no alternative but matching destruction with more destruction, slaughter with greater slaughter." Franklin Roosevelt (1882-1945)

Learn to see in another's calamity the ills which you should avoid.

Personal Story Of The Day

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. Genesis 6:9 References from Genesis 6:5-7:24 Another Noah's Ark? That's what an official in the European Space Agency proposed recently. Dr. Bernard Foing said that efforts should be made to create a repository of genetic samples of all plant, animal, and human life. This library of DNA samples would be placed on the moon in case of a natural disaster, nuclear holocaust, or other catastrophic event. You could repopulate Earth afterwards, like a Noah's Ark, he said. The original Noah's Ark was a merciful provision from God. Sin had come to dominate the story of humanity: The Lord saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time (6:5). Since God hates sin, He was happy to dish out punishment, right? Not exactly. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain (6:5-6). He must judge sin, but He loves us so much that it hurts Him to do so. Once again, this story sounds the twin notes of judgment and mercy. God would punish sin with a Flood that would wipe out all human and animal life, but He would save a remnant. That remnant was Noah and his family. As a righteous man, Noah contrasted strongly with the people of his generation. He walked with God as a friend, and God shared His plans with him, telling him to build a large boat and put on board a zoo of animal species... a kind of ancient DNA library! Noah obeyed in faith (6:22; cf. Heb. 11:7). God sent the animals, everyone got on board, and He Himself shut the door. Then it began to rain. What a sobering picture of the extinction of life on earth, an appalling outworking of the punishment of death. One aspect of our purpose as Christians is to live in light of the Second Coming of Christ. Peter said that people who don't accept the truth of Jesus' return are as badly off as those who were skeptical about Noah's warnings about the imminent Flood (2 Peter 3:3-7)!

Jokes Of The Day

It was about a month ago when a Dutchman in Amsterdam felt that he needed to confess, so went to his priest.

"Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. During World War II, I hid a Jewish man in my attic."

"Well," answered the priest, "that's not a sin."

"But I made him agree to pay me 20 dollars for every week he stayed."

"I admit that wasn't good, but you did it for a good cause."

"Oh thank you Father; that eases my mind. Um, I have one more question..."

"What is that, my son?"

"Do I have to tell him the war is over?"

************************************

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.

************************************

A blonde, wanting to earn some money, decided to hire herself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for her to do. "Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?" The blonde said "How about 50 dollars?"

The man agreed and told her that the paint and ladders that she might need were in the garage. The man's wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, "Does she realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?" The man replied, "She should. She was standing on the porch."

A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money. "You're finished already?" he asked. "Yes," the blonde answered, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats." Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50. "And by the way," the blonde added, "that's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari."

Riddle Of The Day

We are little airy Creatures,
All of diff'rent Voice and Features,
One of us in Glass is set,
One of us you'll find in Jet,
T'other you may see in Tin,
And the fourth a Box within,
If the fifth you shou'd pursue,
It can never fly from you.
--Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)


Answer to Yesterdays Riddle
I was carried into a dark room, and set on fire. I wept, and then my head was cut off. What am I?
A Candle

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

A church member told his pastor that he was going to the Holy Land. He said that it was his intention to visit Jerusalem. He wanted to be where the power of god was poured out... he wanted to walk in the footsteps of Christ. Thinking this would please the pastor, he was surprised to hear, "You know, I can think of something even better than that." The man responded, "You can, Pastor? And what might that be?" He replied rather bluntly, "Instead of traveling thousands of miles to tread where Christ trod, why not stay right here at home and walk in his ways?" God wants us to be inspired by His Word, of course. But more important, He wants us to obey it. So, as we open the Bible each day, we should pray not only for illumination to understand it but also for a willingness to obey it. Hearing and doing must go hand in hand (James 1:22). When Saul heard Jesus speaking to him on the road to Damascus, he asked, "Lord, what do You want me to do?" (Acts 9:6). That's a good question for us to ask whenever we read the Bible or hear it read. Let's be "doers of the Word." *********** Getting Off the Merry go round And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. Genesis 17:3-6 A rather frugal woman met her husband when he got off a merry go round and said, "Now, look at you. You spent your money, you got off right where you got on, and you haven 't been anywhere!" Unfortunately, that 's an accurate picture of life for many people today. But God has so much more to offer. That was true with Abraham. The first 75 years he sought his fortune, first in Ur and later in Haran (Gen 12:4). Then God called him to begin a journey that was both physical and spiritual. Abraham spent the next 24 years seeking to follow his God. However, he also spent a good deal of time living by his own wits instead of trusting the Lord. Finally, shortly before reaching the century mark, he learned the secret. He "fell on his face." Abraham totally humbled himself before God, and it was then that God gave His most spectacular promises. From Abram (Father of Height [exulted]), God changed his name to Abraham (Father of a Multitude). From an obscure desert sheik, he became the forerunner of kings and nations. For those willing to submit to Him, God has an abundant life in store. In fact, the apostle Paul reminds us, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him" (1 Cor 2:9). If life seems a bit like a merry go round to you, maybe it 's time to discover God 's abundant life. Humble yourself completely to Him and find a life more fulfilling than you can imagine. The abundant life comes not by accumulating but by letting go.
