More Than Talk Today’s scripture selection: James 1-3 Key verse: James 1:22 My memory isn’t what it used to be. But, at least it is not this bad: Imagine looking at yourself in a mirror, then turning away, and immediately forgetting what you look like. That’s a serious memory problem. But that is how the… Continue reading Week 43 Saturday

Be Utterly Amazed Today’s scripture selection: Habakkuk Key verses: Habakkuk 1:5 The Old Testament book called Habakkuk is unusual. It’s about a prophet by that name.  But, instead of there being a lot of prophetic saying in the book, there is more of a dialogue; a question/answer session.  And who has that dialogue? The dialogue… Continue reading Week 43 Friday

Meaningless Today’s scripture selection: Ecclesiastes 1-2 Key verse: Ecclesiastes 1:1 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.”   It’s quite a cynical thought:   Everything – and he means everything – is meaningless.   He had tried it all, nothing satisfied.  Not money; not sensuality; not worldly wisdom; not fame or power.… Continue reading Week 43 Thursday

Looking Up Today’s scripture selection: Psalms 122-124 Key verse: Psalm 123:1 “Unto thee I lift up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.” I can’t say that I live in the middle of a technological whirlwind – at least not exactly.

Louder Than Words Today’s scripture selection: Acts 9-10 Key Verse: Acts 9:26 “When he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples: and they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple.” The apostle Paul – before he was known as the apostle Paul – had… Continue reading Week 43 Sunday

Expectant Hope Today’s scripture selection: Hebrews 11-13 Key verses: Hebrews 11:1-2 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Refuge and Judge Today’s scripture selection: Nahum Key verses: Nahum 1:7-9 A lot of people seem to picture God to be one thing or another, but not both.

The Sound of Grace Today’s scripture selection: Proverbs 31 Key verses: Proverbs 31:8 “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.” It might not always be popular or politically “correct”.
