Devotions for Life

“An All Seeing Eye”

Today’s Bible Verse: “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Pro. 15:3).
An unknown poet wrote, “All along the road to the soul’s true abode, there’s an eye watching you. Every step that you take, this great eye is awake, there’s an all seeing eye watching you.” Teachers are well aware of what might happen while they are out of the classroom a few minutes and that’s where this story began with two first grade boys in the room instead of out at recess.


Fear Not Their Fear

Bible Verse for Today: “Being ready always to give answer to every man that asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear” ( I Peter 3:15).

Not long ago a man was standing on the street corner in London preaching against homosexuality.  He was arrested and sent to prison for his words of belief in God’s will.  Like Peter and John who were arrested for preaching, he might have said, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to hearken unto you rather than unto God, judge ye; for we cannot but speak the things which we saw and heard” (Acts 4:19, 20).


Who Is This Jesus? Part 7

Ponder: “Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in all things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted” (Hebrews 2:17-18).
Jesus is the One who lived the life that I could not. I failed to live a sinless, obedient, compassionate, and forgiving life since the age when I could understand right and wrong.
