Devotions for Life

My Uninterested Neighbor

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7).

“The moving finger writes: and, having writ, moves on: nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of    it.”   OmarKhayyam
Yesterday, I went to ask a neighbor for a Bible study.  I was certain, from talks we had in the past, that he would be eager to study God’s word in depth.


His Last Choice

“It is appointed unto men once to die, and after this comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

The sky grew darker as the soldiers lifted the heavy cross to a standing position.  Agony shot through his body like lightning.  It was a fitting end for the life he had lived. 


“Oiling The Linoleum”

“Let us not lose heart in doing good for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary” (Gal. 6:9).

Elders and preachers often find themselves the chosen representatives in visiting the sick and those who need the concern and attention of the church members.  In too many cases, they become the principal counselors and consolers and a part of the individual member’s service to Christ is forfeited.
