Devotions for Life

In just a few days I will begin my annual quest on the Longest Yard Sale. The sale extends from Michigan to Alabama, a total of 690 miles. The portion that I usually drive, from Frankfort, KY to Crossville, TN, goes through Pall Mall, TN. Pall Mall is the home of Sergeant Alvin C. York, one of the most decorated soldiers in WW I.

Scripture: “And He has made of one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26, NKJV).

Virtually everyone, at one time or another, asks the following questions: “Where did I come from?” “Why am I here?” “Where am I going?” Being made in God’s image, we have a built-in need to know about our origin, purpose, and destiny. Paul dealt those three questions in his sermon on the Areopagus (Mars Hill) in Acts 17.
