Good Is Not Good Enough

“A certain ruler asked him, ‘Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?'” (Luke 18:18).

You’ve heard the story. A rich young ruler came to Jesus asking what he needed to do to inherit eternal life. This was admirable, but one fancies that the young man wanted Jesus’ praise and affirmation. He, from his youth, was very careful to avoid the bad sins. He was a good man.


Everlasting Refreshment

Bible Reading: “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him”
(Psalm 34:8, KJV)
Not too long ago, I read some interesting statistics about Coca-Cola. According to the writer, 97%
of the world’s population has heard of Coca-Cola, 72% of the world’s population has seen the
product, and 51% of the people in the world have tried Coca-Cola at least once. On average,
over 10,000 Coke products are consumed each second of any given day. Not too shabby for
a product that’s been around for only 130 years!


“Hey, We’re Not Praying”


Ponder: Children in the assembly
Scripture: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6, NKJV).
What Christian parent hasn’t been embarrassed by unruly children during church? Unfortunately, some simply stop bringing their children (and stop attending themselves) despite the encouragement of experienced parents that “this, too, shall pass.” Obviously, Johnny and Susie can’t learn to behave in church if Mama and Daddy don’t take them.
