Good Only For Goodness’ Sake?

Today’s Bible Passage: “Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, ‘Abraham!’ ‘Here I am,’ he replied.Then God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about'” (Gen 22:1-2 NIV).
How can you tell a man is lazy? If he has nothing to do, you can’t say he’s lazy. If he’s too ill to do anything, you can’t tell if he’s lazy. But a man might be lazy even if he has nothing to do, or too ill to do anything.


Fathers Are Worthy Of Honor

The Bible declares for us to “Honor our father and mother” (Eph. 6:2).
It is interesting to notice that the Bible doesn’t tell us to honor only those fathers who are perfect and without sin! Good fathers recognize their many imperfections and would wish they could have the years back to do a better job. Guilt weighs heavily on fathers (mothers too!) for things left undone, and thing done that should have been left undone.


Number Our Days

Ponder: Jas 4:13-17
Today’s Bible Verse: “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Ps 118:24 NIV).
Besse Cooper, of Monroe, Georgia, is considered to be the oldest living person today. She turned 115 last August. She was asked what she remembers telling her children. She said, “To be honest, and you can do anything if you set your mind to it.” You may see an interview with her on You tube to see she still has a sense of humor.
