Monday's Ministry Morsel

I will have the opportunity this afternoon to share the word of God with a family that will gather by a grave and commit the body of their loved one to the ground. That ministry opportunity reminded me this morning of the temporal nature of this life and how brief it really is. Even 70 or 80 years is compared to a vapor that soon vanishes away. All of us experience suffering on some level but the encouragement we draw from the word of God reminds us that even our days of suffering are numbered when we have a relationship with Jesus. The day is coming when there will be no more sickness, sadness, suffering or separation from loved ones. God has promised to wipe away all the tears as those

Monday's Ministry Morsel

The theme this morning for me personally appears to be the reminder to 'wait'. Everything I have opened and read this morning somehow points to that directive. Maybe it's because that lesson is still, even after 38 years of journeying with Jesus one of the more difficult for me to exercise discipline in. And I am, most likely not the only one who struggles with or dismisses the discipline of waiting.

In some material this past week I was reminded of the absolute requirement to be prepared for each and every day. That includes being properly dressed as we walk out of our homes each day and into the world at large. It is not uncommon for us to spend some time (some more than others) getting ready for work or for what is planned for the day. However, not as much time or effort is consistently given to being prepared spiritually each day. That neglect can be very dangerous, if not destructive to our walk with the Lord and our testimony in the world. Ephesians 6:10 begins a segment of scripture that emphasizes the importance of getting dressed for battle every day. The battle is not only w

In discipleship studies this week I was reminded of the blessing of the law of multiplication. It is an amazing concept that investors and financial gurus are well aware of. What follows is an example that was given in our discipleship material. The question is posed--'Would you rather have a penny doubled every day for a month or a million dollars in cash? Most would immediately seize on the opportunity to 'cash in' on the million dollars but that would not be the wise choice. With the blessing of multiplication at work for you, the process begins with a penny. The next day you would have 2, the next 4, the next 8 and the next 16 pennies. After 7 days you would have a whopping $.64 cents
