Devotions for Life

Mustard-Seed Faith

Luke 17:1-10 

Read

The apostles said to the Lord, “Show us how to increase our faith.”

The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘
May you be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it would obey you!
“When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, does his master say, ‘Come in and eat with me’?
No, he says, ‘Prepare my meal, put on your apron, and serve me while I eat. Then you can eat later.’ And does the
master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not. In the same way, when you obey me you
should say, ‘We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.’” (Luke 17:5-10)

The Narrow Door

Luke 13:22-30 

Read

“Work hard to enter the narrow door to God’s Kingdom, for many will try to enter but will fail. When the master of the house has locked the door, it will be too late. You will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Lord, open the door for us!’ But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’ Then you will say, ‘But we ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ And he will reply, ‘I tell you, I don’t know you or where you come from. Get away from me, all you who do evil.’

Repairing Relationships

Numbers 5:11-31 

Read

And the LORD said to Moses, “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel.”

“Suppose a man’s wife goes astray, and she is unfaithful to her husband and has sex with another man, but neither
her husband nor anyone else knows about it. She has defiled herself, even though there was no witness and she was
not caught in the act. If her husband becomes jealous and is suspicious of his wife and needs to know whether or not
she has defiled herself, the husband must bring his wife to the priest. He must also bring an offering of two quarts of
barley flour to be presented on her behalf. Do not mix it with olive oil or frankincense, for it is a jealousy offering—an
offering to prove whether or not she is guilty” (Numbers 5:11-15)
