Devotions for Life

What Color Are You?

Text: “Let us examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the LORD” (Lamentations 3:40 NASB).

Have you ever made a purchase and had the salesperson put a mark on the currency that you used to pay?
The salesperson was using a counterfeit detector pen which contains an iodine solution that creates a black stain on counterfeit bills. On genuine bills there is no discoloration.
What if there were a pen that we could use on Christians to determine whether they were genuine or not. On ourselves, for example. What if we could just swipe ourselves with a pen in order to determine whether, or not, we are acceptable to God. Whether we are the real thing in His sight.


“Lonely, and You?”

“Behold an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each in his own home, and to leave Me alone, and yet, I am not alone, because the Father is with Me” (Jn. 16:32).

What is this life all about and why are we here for such a short time? It has become obvious since the questions asked were answered – “to die!” It is only through death that we will live again. Accepting the concept is difficult, but all will die, the good, bad, while those not in Christ die – forever!


Uncle Bob

“A good name is to be more desired than great wealth” (Proverbs 22:1a).

Recently, Robert P. passed on. I knew him as uncle Bob. He left a great example. He was a man of integrity, a man who cared about family and others, and a man who always had time for others. He will definitely be missed. He became my uncle when I married one of his nieces, who preceded him in death. I count myself blessed to have known and to have been influenced by him.
