Devotions for Life

Yes, Jesus Loves Me

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you. . . (John 13:34).
The story is told of a retired preacher in his 90’s asked to speak at his past congregation’s 60th anniversary. As he put together a sermon for one last time in their pulpit, the preacher who took his place, asked, “What was the greatest lesson you learned in your preaching days?”


To Heal And To Care

“Look after My sheep” (Jn. 21:16).
After W.W.II, my Navy friends and known veterans who depended on the national veterans’ facilities, complained about how difficult and uncaring it was for them. There was the distance that had to be driven, the long hours waiting for service, and the abrupt attention given by those appointed to render aid.

The term “character,” comes from Webster, stating, “. . . the heart is the emotional or moral status that distinguishes one’s innermost character.”
