Devotions for Life

We Can!

“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13).
“The Little Engine That Could,” as you may recall, is an illustrated children’s book that was first published in the United States in 1930. The story written by Arnold Munk, pen name, Watty Piper,
  is used to teach children the value of optimism, perseverance and hard work. Based on a 2007
online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its “Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children.”


Have You Made Reservations?

Text:  “Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful,
but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life” (Revelation 21:27).
Recently a friend said that he had made reservations even though the event he planned to attend was 11 months away.  As they say, “It’s good to plan ahead.”  When the time comes, my friend will definitely have a place to stay.


What Does Love Look Like? 

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God” (I John 4:7).
Our culture defines love as “what makes me feel good.” That covers a range of things from a new car, a favorite treat, doing good deeds, and being treated as special.
