Today Will Be The Day You Make It.

Only 214 days to the year 2024

Scripture Of The Day

I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. Psalms 9:2.

Read The Bible In a Year

2 Chronicles 15-16; John 12:27-50.

Thoughts For The Day

Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

If you have nothing else to do, look about you and see if there isn't something close at hand that you can improve! It may make you wealthy, though it is more likely that it will make you happy.

To take all that we are and have and hand it over to God may not be easy; but it can be done; and when it is done, the world has in it one less candidate for misery.

Motivation For The Day

Never replace discipline with emotion.... never replace mercy with discipline.

Personal Story Of The Day

I Want To Be Good

Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:21

We often have the grandchildren over and as usual, they often spill things or make messes. They don't plan it, nor do they delight in it, but it happens and they are disappointed. Once one of them said after a mishap... "I want to be good grandpa... I tried to be good". There seemed to be an expectation of rebuke or rejection. The grandson thought he was in trouble.

How many times have we, as a child of the King, appeared before the Father, and didn't think we were living up to his expectations? We sometimes under estimate the Lord's love for his children, just as my grandson under estimated our love for him. Just as I wasn't expecting this child to be perfect, neither is the Father expecting something we can't give. Each day that we live for His cause, we do our best, and that's what he wants. He understands we are are human, and that we might fail, but he also knows that he gives us the power to succeed. And, if we try hard enough, then we will succeed. He's not keeping score, or drawing back with his hand to give us a slap, if we fail. He's ready to draw us into his loving arms, just as we were assuring our grandson of our love for him.

Jokes Of The Day

Disgusted with his life, an absent-minded professor decided to commit suicide. That night his wife returned home to find him hanging from the ceiling by his ankles.

"What are you doing up there?" she asked.

"I'm trying to kill myself," replied the professor.

"You're doing it all wrong," said his wife. "You're supposed to put the rope around your neck."

"I tried it that way," whined the professor, "but I couldn't breathe."


"I say, I say, I say. My girlfriend's an absolute peach."

"You mean she's got soft skin and is sweet?"

"No. She has a heart of stone."


"If you think nobody cares whether you are alive or dead, try missing a couple of car payments."


Riddle Of The Day

I have a hole through which fingers peep, I clash my teeth, but do not weep. What am I?

Answer to Yesterday's Riddle
What can burn the eyes, sting the mouth, yet be consumed?

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

A Good Work Ethic Provides A Good Worship Ethic.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, Colossians 3:17. References from Proverbs 6:6-19. 

Theres a funny cartoon about a typical workday: 8:00 - arrive and greet co-workers; 8:30 - sit at desk; 9:00 - make a photocopy and visit co-workers along the way; 9:30 - coffee break; 10:00 - return to desk; 10:30 - bathroom break; 11:00 - return to desk; 11:30 - call co-workers to confirm lunch plans; 11:45 - get ready for lunch; noon - leave for lunch. The afternoon schedule looks pretty much the same. Every office seems to have someone well practiced in this routine. 

Such a work ethic would be incomprehensible to an ant. An ant doesn't need an office manager or supervisor to prod it along; it simply does whatever it takes to get the job done. An ant is internally motivated, unconcerned by its annual bonus or who might be watching it. What's more, an ant is a long range planner. With outside temperatures soaring, it prepares for the upcoming winter months. No wonder then, that the ant is described as the ideal worker. 

Not so the sluggard, whose lack of planning leads to sudden poverty. Instead of setting aside money for unexpected needs and expenses, he's spent it all! 

From laziness, the focus shifts to corruption (v12). The reference to many parts of the body stresses the extent of this corruption. First, the scoundrel has a corrupt mouth, described elsewhere as deceptive or crooked speech (see Prov 2). Next, this person somehow uses his eyes, feet, and fingers for wickedness. Everything he touches, sees and walks by is an opportunity for sinful actions. In fact, we see that this man's actions spring, unprovoked, from his corrupt heart, which is intent upon creating discord between people. His downward spiral finally leads to death (v15). 

Today's verses concludes with what is called a numerical proverb. This list has many parallels to the one we just looked at, but here we also see explicitly that such actions are hated by the Lord. That alone is motivation to avoid them! Notice especially that pride and lying are on par with murder. That's something for us to consider. 

These verses apply whether you are currently employed or not, for all of us work, whether at home, at school, or at a job. Take a minute to identify your own work situation. Now ask yourself if laziness or a tendency to cut corners has crept into your attitude toward work. Then review the list given in Proverbs 6:6-19. If you find room for improvement in any of these areas, thank the Lord that His Word prompts correction before it's too late. 

Learning To Give

Many people in affluent countries have become burdened by the accumulation of material goods they no longer need nor use. But they have a hard time getting rid of things that clog their homes and businesses. After five moves in four years, one woman said, "You know how much stuff I brought with me to each place? I've asked myself, 'Where was your brain when you moved all this stuff?'" She then hired a professional organizer to help her learn to let go of things.

People cling to their possessions for many different reasons. It seems that Zacchaeus struggled with this problem because he was greedy (Luke 19:1-10). But the story of this wealthy tax collector who climbed a tree to see Jesus culminated in a complete change of heart when Zacchaeus said, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor" (v8). He then promised, "If I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold." Jesus responded by saying, "Today salvation has come to this house" (v9).

The new spiritual freedom that Zacchaeus found could be observed as he turned from collecting to giving. His relaxed grip revealed a renewed heart.

Is it true of us as well?
