Psalms 9:10

Read The Bible In a Year

Thoughts For The Day

Fools rush in where fools have been before

Man is the Only Animal that Blushes. Or needs to.

Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date.


Motivation For The Day

" Show affection, it will probably meet with pleasant response. "

Personal Story Of The Day

Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted: James 1:9 References from James 1:9-11; Mark 10:17-31 A recent car commercial depicts a man practicing all the ways he can tell his friends about his great new set of wheels. Standing in front of a mirror he practices dropping nonchalant comments into his imagined conversations. Oh, he says tossing his head in the direction of his car, thats just my new car. Of course, the point of this commercial is that the man is so proud of his new vehicle that he desperately wants to show it off to everyone. In our culture, almost from infancy we receive the notion that we should be proud of our material possessions. Cars, houses, boats, and other possessions are viewed as badges of happiness and success in this world. Those without these things are likely to be pitied rather than praised. Yet the Bible calls for a radical inversion of this way of thinking. James tells us plainly that Christians who are poor ought to take pride in their humble circumstances while the wealthy, instead of boasting in their possessions, ought to take pride in their lowliness (v910). The point James seeks to impress on us is that God cares nothing for the wealth we tend to value. In Gods eyes the things we so often wrongly treasure are little more than wildflowers whose beauty quickly withers away (v11). Instead, God values spiritual humility. Being poor does not guarantee acceptance with God any more than it provides immunity from greed and envy. On the other hand, if wealth is attended by privilege in this world, Jesus warned that it also brings certain dangers (cf. Mark 10:1731). The situation is similar to that of encountering trials. Those who never face them will have a weaker faith than those who do because trials are a means of growing in faith. The wealthy of the world may learn to value the wrong things and are simply not forced, in the way the poor often are, to depend daily on Gods provision for their very life.

Jokes Of The Day

A dietician was once addressing a large audience in Chicago. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the germs in our drinking water. But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all of us eat it. Can anyone here tell me what lethal product I'm referring to? You, sir, in the first row, please give us your idea."

The man lowered his head and said, "Wedding cake."

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

As supposedly reported on CNN:

Undercover police, staging the wedding of "a drug kingpin's daughter", let it be known on the street that dealers were "invited" (i. e. Expected to attend).

The bride and groom were police, as was the band, bartender, and about half the guests. The band playing at the wedding was "S. P. O. C." (COPS, backwards), and the wedding went through the full ceremony, including the dancing afterward.

The long-sought dealers were arrested after the "band" took their break. The last song the band played before taking its break? "I Fought The Law, And The Law Won"

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

My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?"

I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we alike?"

"You're both old," he replied.

Riddle Of The Day

How many times can you subtract the number 5 from 25?

Answer to Yesterdays Riddle
If a wheel has 64 spokes, how many spaces are there between the spokes?
64. The space that comes after the 64th spoke, would be just before the first spoke.

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

A familiar slogan about prayer is, "Prayer changes things." But prayer doesn't do this... God does. Some people think that prayer itself is the source of power, so they "try prayer," hoping "it will work" for them. In Mark 11, Jesus disclosed one of the secrets behind all true prayer: "Have faith in God." Not faith in faith, not faith in prayer, but "faith in God" (v22). Jesus told His disciples they could command a mountain to be cast into the sea, and if they believed it would happen, it would. Jesus then gave them His meaning behind that astonishing promise. He said, "Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will" (v24). Jesus was speaking about answered prayer. We can ask and receive answers only if our asking is directed to God in faith and according to His will (1 John 5:14). He has removed mountains of worry, fear, and resentment from many a heart and cast them into oblivion through our faith in Him. He is still in the mountain moving business! Have faith in God and pray! *********** Better Than Many Sons And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel. And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him. Ruth 4:14-15 A popular magazine once carried a section in which it offered its readers the opportunity to send pictures of their part of the country and tell why they think it's the best. Month after month, people sent in beautiful photos from all over the country, and invariably some commented about their particular area, "It can't get any better than this." That's what the women of Bethlehem were saying to Naomi. To have a son was wonderful. It was the responsibility of a Jewish son to care for his mother when his father passed away. He was her security and companion in old age. But these women agreed; Ruth was better than seven sons. She had done all that any son would have done and more... she had borne Naomi a grandson, the assurance that she would be taken care of in her latter years. It couldn't get any better than this. This is also what Christ has done for us. Through His blood He has cleansed us from our sins. The past is forgiven. Through His Word we have the wisdom to live day by day. And through His Spirit we have the power to be His witnesses wherever we are. Through His resurrection we have the assurance that we, too, shall be raised beyond the grave to spend eternity in heaven. Everything is taken care of... past, present and future.
