Back To School

Scripture: “And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians” (Acts 7:22, NKJV).

It’s back-to-school time! If your children or grandchildren haven’t started yet, they soon will. May God bless them with safety and good health as they learn!


When The Ordinary Becomes Extraordinary

“But when Simon Peter saw that, he fell down at Jesus’ feet, saying, ‘Go away from me Lord,
for I am a sinful man, O Lord!'” (Luke 5:8).
It seemed to be just an ordinary day for fishermen. They returned from fishing and were
mending their nets for another venture into the lake that night, On this occasion, Jesus was there.
His presence turns the ordinary into something extraordinary. Happens every time. People come to hear Jesus and things happen. They pressed him to the point that he got into Peter’s boat and had
him push off a little ways off shore. He sat down in the boat and taught the large crowd. No man
ever taught like this man. He looked ordinary but the message was not ordinary.


Unpleasant Tasks

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no activity or planning or
knowledge or wisdom in Sheol where you are going” (Eccl 9:10).
Nobody said everything in life would be easy. Sometimes an unpleasant task confronts us.
Personally, my natural tendency is to delay those duties. But procrastination never
accomplishes the job. In most cases, it merely multiplies the misery.
