Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
Psalms 32:22

Read The Bible In a Year

Thoughts For The Day

It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

No matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

The most important thing about goals is having one.


Motivation For The Day

" Make new friends but keep the old, One is silver the other gold. "

Personal Story Of The Day



Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Psalm 37:12

References from Proverbs 26:1-28

We are reminded that Proverbs presents three types of people. The simple are open to instruction, and Proverbs was written for them. The wise receive and apply wisdom. They flourish and are a blessing. The foolish, however, reject Gods wisdom. They deceive and seduce others. In the end, they come to ruin.

Today we see that fools come in many flavors! Before looking at this unsavory crowd, recall the twofold purpose for these sayings. First, they reveal fools true nature so that we wont be ensnared by them. This doesnt mean that we dont love and pray for such people, it just means that were careful in our dealings with them.

Second, these proverbs caution us to avoid these characteristics in our own lives. Proverbs gives us black and white portraits of certain types of individuals to make these traits very clear to us. Within any one of us, both wise and foolish traits vie for control, and we need to be able to distinguish between them.

The first section reviews the nature of fools (v112). The rod (v3) underscores how fools resist instruction . . . you cant even beat sense into them. Because a fool is stubborn and lacks sense, its pointless to debate him (v45). In fact, to do so will make him think hes wise! But, in fact, a fools wisdom is lame and ineffective. Verse 11 graphically shows that fools like being obstinate. Clearly foolishness is a choice, not an IQ level.

When it comes to irresponsibility, the fools cousin is the sluggard (v13-16). He invents perils to get out of work so that he can stay in bed (v1314). Because of his excuses, he cant see that the problem is really his own laziness.

Another close relative to these two is the troublemaker (v1728). He meddles in other peoples affairs and stirs up gossip. He says malicious things and then hides behind, Just kidding! What a dangerous way to handle relationships!

Its easy to read these verses and say, I know someone like that! or That describes So-and-So perfectly! But its much harder to read these proverbs and ask, How am I like a fool, a sluggard, or a troublemaker?

These verses speak about our tendencies to justify our character flaws or rationalize our sin.  Each of todays portraits challenges us to root out these traits from our own lives.

INVESTMENT ADVICE

If you had bought $1000.00 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

If you had bought $1000.00 worth of budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then traded in the cans at a redemption center for the nickel deposit, you would have $107.00.

Given the current conditions of the economy, my advice is to is to drink heavily and recycle !

A man is speeding down the freeway when he's stopped by a police car and has to pull over.
"Do you realize you were doing 80 m.p.h. in a 60 m.p.h. zone, sir?" asks the policeman.
"That's impossible, sir, I never break the speed limit," replies the driver.
The driver's wife butts in and says, "Yes, you do, I'm always telling you to keep your speed down."
The policeman says, "I also noticed, sir, that you didn't have your seat belt on.
You put it on as I was walking over to your car."
"That is not true, sir; I always wear my seat belt," replies the driver.
"No, you don't, I'm always telling you to put your seat belt on," says the driver's wife.
"Stupid woman," the driver explodes, "can't you, just for once, keep that big, fat trap of yours shut?"
The policeman is a bit shocked by how the driver is speaking to his wife, so he moves around to her side of the car. "Does he often speak to you like this, madam?"
"Oh, no, officer," she says, "only when he's drunk."

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


A man had transformed an over grown plot of ground into a beautiful garden and was showing a friend what he had accomplished. Pointing to a bed of flowers, he said, "Look at what I did here." His companion corrected him, "You mean, 'Look at what God and I did here.'" The gardener replied, "I guess you're right. But you should have seen the shape this plot was in when He was taking care of it by Himself."

We chuckle at the man's reply, but it expresses a wonderful spiritual truthwe are co-workers with God. This applies to every area of life, including prayer. It answers a question that naturally comes to mind when we reflect on Jesus' statements in Matthew 6. He said we don't need to pray on and on with vain repetitions like the pagans, because our Father knows what we need before we ask (Matthew 6:7-8).

The question is, then, why pray? The answer is simple and comforting. God has graciously chosen to give us the privilege of being His partners in both the physical and spiritual areas of life. Through prayer we work with Him in defeating the powers of evil and in bringing about the fulfillment of His loving purposes in the world. Partners with Godwhat a privilege! What an incentive to pray!

Our Greatest Need

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. Psalms 19:7

Life seems to always have us in some kind of need. Some need material things, such as a house to live in, a car to drive, adequate clothing for the seasons, or perhaps food to fill hungry mouths. We look at others and think, how do they afford all the luxury items they have? We feel we know that they don't make the money to obtain such items, and just decide they get it on credit. Perhaps they do, or perhaps they get those items through other means. It really doesn't matter. We just know that we have a need that isn't being met at the moment. We can't see a way of meeting that need without a miracle.

With all the material needs, we sometimes don't stop and think that perhaps are greatest need is to know what God has set forth in His Word for our lives. It's hard to focus on the Word, when your body is in need of food or clothing, or it seems life can't go on without needed transportation. But, here is where we miss the mark. We need to get in the Word, study the Word, and get it into our whole being. You will find that God has set forth a plan for our lives within the scripture. It is more of a need than even the air we breathe. Without the Word, one is a fallen man. To recover from this state, we need the Gospel. To come against the adversary, we need the Word. To put our lives on the correct path to true overcoming, we are in need of the Word. His Word will enlighten our eyes and hearts, if we read it daily and heed his calling.
