Scripture Of The Day

But godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:6

Read The Bible In a Year

Song of Solomon 4-5 ; Galatians 3

Thoughts For The Day

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.

The world is full of willing people, some willing to work, the rest willing to let them.

Motivation For The Day

Our envy of others devours us most of all.

On This Day

622 - Muhammad's Hegira-The prophet Muhammad escapes death by completing the Hegira, or flight, to Medina from Mecca on this day. Mecca is the holy center of Islam and the birthplace of Muhammad, the religion's great prophet and founder. In 610, in a cave in Mount Hira, north of Mecca, Muhammad had a vision in which God commanded him to become the prophet of the true religion. He gained a significant following in Mecca, provoking the jealous city authorities to plot his death. Muhammad escaped and on September 24, 622, arrived at Medina. There, Muhammad founded Islam as a religion and organized community, and in 630 he returned to Mecca as a conqueror. The Hegira would later mark the beginning (year 1) of the Muslim calendar.

Personal Story Of The Day

Concert pianist Jeannette Haien believes that the structure of a fine musical composition actually provides great freedom for the person who plays it. "Within the strictures (structure) of so called form," she says, "is all the freedom in the world." It's easy to feel confined by structure in our faith because we have a natural resistance to rules. But God's commands are given to enhance our lives rather than restrict them. First John 5:3 states, "This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not grievous." Instead of weighing us down, they protect us from the burden of sin. As we follow His commands, we experience liberty. Speaking of an excellent musical composition, Jeannette Haien says,"Under the laws of structure you have the freedom to work in the freest way imaginable. What [the composer] has written is that which I honour." The Bible is our sheet music for living. Today, we can play the song of life as God has written it, and we can discover anew the promises of Christ to those who follow Him: "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32).

Jokes Of The Day

One afternoon, a wealthy lawyer was riding in the back of his
limousine when he saw two men eating grass by the road side.
He ordered his driver to stop, and he got out to investigate.

"Why are you eating grass?" he asked one man.
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied.
"Oh, well, you can come with me to my house," instructed the
"But, sir, I have a wife and two children with me!"
"Bring them along!" replied the lawyer.
He turned to the other man and said: "You come with us, too."
"But I have a wife and six children," the second man answered.
"Bring them as well" replied the lawyer.
They all climbed into the car, which was no easy task, even for a
car as large as the limousine.
Once underway, one of the poor fellows said: "Sir, you are too
kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
The lawyer replied: "Glad to do it. You'll love my place; the grass
is almost a foot tall."


An atheist was spending a quiet day fishing when suddenly his boat was attacked by the Loch Ness monster. In one easy flip, the beast tossed him and his boat high into the air. Then it opened its mouth to swallow both.

As the man sailed head over heels, he cried out, 'Oh, my God! Help me!'

At once, the ferocious attack scene froze in place, and as the atheist hung in mid-air, a booming voice came down from the clouds, 'I thought you didn't believe in Me!'

Come on God, give me a break!!' the man pleaded. 'Two minutes ago I didn't believe in the Loch Ness monster either!'

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

I sleep, but my heart waketh: Song of Solomon 5:2-

The woman has made preparation for bed and is in a set pattern of her own comfort. However her lover knocks on the door to speak with her, but it is not convenient. Finally she relents and gets up and opens the door, but he has gone. This is part of a dream sequence and goes on to describe the awakening of the true intimacy she has with her beloved. There is a spiritual message for the individual or the church to awaken out of its own sleep. But once awake and moving, there are hurdles and obstacles to overcome. As she desperately seeks his company so their love can be confirmed, she is poorly treated by the night-watchmen who steal her cloak and treat her poorly. This happens to us in this world. Those who are called to care for our souls (religious leaders... family members) are often the ones who hurt us and bring pain as we search for the true love of Christ to be revealed within us. We are reminded in Romans 13:11 'And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.' ...exactly the same story that Solomon delivered in his love letter. The Lord is knocking now, awaken and enjoy the spiritual pleasures of his company, but remember, there are obstacles to overcome, mainly from within and often from without. However, on this occasion, there is a church full of people willing to help you find your first love. 

Criticism And Negativity

Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. James 3:10 

I am sure all of us have heard criticism before... either about someone or someone criticising us. Criticism is hurtful, if not applied correctly. And, the correct way to 'apply criticism' is to avoid it. Instead of criticising, why not give a praise? Find something good to comment the person on. And, if the problem still exists, why not talk with them about it, and perhaps give a suggestion rather than criticism? Too often, adults will say things to children that could be worded differently, and would have a different affect on each child. We need to say positive things to children. If they won't do their duties, let them know the consequences of carelessness. Don't tell them how lazy they are or that they will never amount to anything in their lives. Children need motivation, not the development and confirmation of a learned behaviour. When speaking to others, we need to have a positive thought, rather than negative. If we can't speak good things, we need to keep our mouth shut. When we criticise, it also puts a bad light on ourselves. If we cannot identify the good points about something first... put them in perspective and then offer a solution that will work... we certainly can't criticise our way to a solution. Remember sometimes you may be in error and may be the one that needs 'criticism'... give the Lord time to establish the right solution rather than undermine the faith of others with continual fault finding.
