Devotions for Life

“Live Like You Were Dying”

“You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved” (Matt 10:22 NASU).
Primo Levi who was a survivor of Auschwitz, wrote several deeply moving books about his experiences there, a testament to the human beings ability to survive the most horrendous circumstances. Lawrence Kohlberg, a professor of Harvard, did groundbreaking research on the development of a sense of morality in children and adults.


Have You Made A Referral?

Text: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
I recently received an email solicitation from a media company with whom I have a service contract. They were asking if I had made a referral. They were offering a bonus for any referrals that I made which resulted in new business for them. There are many companies from which we receive services that offer gifts or discounts if we will make referrals. They often offer discounts to both the present subscriber and to the new subscriber as well.


The Challenge

Today’s Scripture: Matthew 5:48 – “…you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
I think that it has pretty well run its course. The ice bucket challenge swept across our country like a plague, but you don’t hear about it much anymore. You didn’t need much to participate; a bucket filled with ice (the larger the better) someone to pour it over you, a towel, a change of clothes and a willingness to look undignified. But there was the challenge aspect also. You submitted to baptism by ice and challenged others to do it also.
