Taking Chances

Scripture Reading – Ephesians 5:15-16

Today’s Bible Thought: “And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts” (2 Pet. 1:19).


Hardly Expected

“But the man named Ananias with his wife Sapphira sold a piece of property and kept back part of the price for himself, with his wife’s full knowledge, and bringing a portion of it, he laid it at the apostles’ feet” (Acts 5:1, 2).
Sin never brings those involved what was pictured or promised, because the less invested in truth, integrity, and spiritual security, the less the return. Like the fellow whose plan was to rob a store by handing the clerk a ten dollar bill so she’d have to open the cash register drawer and he could grab the money.


These Hands

Ponder: Ps. 24:3-6

Today’s Bible Verse: “I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.
(Ps 143:6 NIV).

Kimbra Hickey, a part time message therapist, is now a famous hand model. You may have seen her hands holding an apple on the cover of the “Twilight” novel. Surprisingly, there’s a great demand for hand models and the competition is tense. Kimbra told an interviewer recently that “sometimes you just show the photographer your hands, and he looks at them and your portfolio. Other times they don’t even look at your portfolio, they just take a couple quick pictures and then move on to the next. Sometimes there are a couple hundred people at those auditions. . . .”
