Devotions for Life

His Heart Is In The Wrong Place

Lesson Text:  “My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, And my heart was moved for him” (Song of Solomon 5:4). 

News reports say that Randy Foye’s (starting guard for the Denver Nuggets), heart is in the wrong place.  Literally.  It is not tilted toward the left side like it is in most people. It is tilted to the right.


Giving Up Misunderstanding For Truth

“. . .when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ” (Eph 3:4b NASU).

“That’s what my parents believed, and if it was good enough for them, it’s good enough for me.”  This is something that sticks with me ever since I heard the lady tell me that she would never question her infant baptism because her parents believed it was right, although the Bible clearly teaches only immersion as baptism.


Leadership And Servant-hood

Ponder: Biblical leadership

Scripture: “.  . . whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all” (Mark10:43, 44 NKJV).

Self-centered, worldly attitudes conceive that leaders as those who set ambitious goals and then reach them by hook or by crook. By contrast, I like the way Jeff Myers puts it: “Good leaders don’t use others to reach their goals; they use their goals to reach others.” Isn’t that consistent with what Jesus said, as well as with the life He lived?
