Devotions for Life

I Didn’t Mean To Do It

“If anyone shall sin unwittingly, in any of the things which the Lord commands not to be done…” (Leviticus 4:2). 

“I didn’t mean to do it.” How many times have we said it? From the time we were three years old and broke something (by accident), we say it. You would think by the time we become adults, we would know not to sin. But we don’t. Satan has a way of creeping up on us, tricking us, beguiling us. He can make us reason ourselves into thinking that what we’re doing isn’t wrong. 


Food For Life

Today’s Scripture: John 6:35 – “Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.'” 

The peaches that are grown in the garden of Xi Wang-mu’s (pronounced Shee Wong moo) are reputed to be very special peaches. Imagine my surprise to find out that the gods are nourished by a steady diet of those special peaches that take thousands of years to ripen. They are called “the peaches of immortality.” To those who eat one will be granted long life; in fact, 3000 years from a single peach. (Mental_floss, Gabe, Luzier. November 2014) 


Where Can I Go?

“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will lay hold of me. If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night, even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You” (Psalm 139: 7-12).
