Devotions for Life


Today’s Bible Verse: “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven” (Eccl 3:1 NASU).
I frequently wish I had more time, don’t you? Yet it is true that we all have the same amount. Yet it keeps marching on. The old proverb says “time and tide wait for no man.” As much as we might try (and advertisers try to convince us otherwise) we cannot stop the onset of time. That facial cream will not keep the wrinkles away forever. Exercise and a good diet will help, but old age and its ailments will set in nonetheless.


Truth, Sincerity And Wisdom

Ponder: The audacity of the gospel
Scripture: “Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you” (Acts 17:23b NKJV).
In Athens, idolatry and human philosophy dominated the scene. As Paul viewed the city packed with statues, busts, temples, and altars, his “spirit was provoked within him” (Acts 17:16). He couldn’t stand it! He began preaching Christ, and ended up being tried before the Court of Aereopagus (Mars Hill).



Bible Verse for Today: “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35).
Even though our favorite restaurant is a long drive from our house, we try to go there at least once a month. It is owned and operated by a Greek couple. They have had to move their restaurant three times in the past five years, but each time they move, they become more successful. Their secret for success is not just their fine Greek, American, and Mexican food and great prices. It is their love and attitude toward others.
