Spiritual Shoplifting

Written by Rev Dr. Willie Caldwell.

Psalm 37:5-6 "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus! In today's world, commitment is a fleeting word that is considered old fashioned and outdated. The loyalty that goes along with commitment is considered over the top and I quote, "it don't take all that." David admonishes the reader to "Commit thy way," and in Proverbs 16:3, Solomon writes "Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be estab-lished." This word "way" is most often used metaphorically to refer to the path-ways of one's life, suggesting the pattern of life. The word "works" refers to various deeds or works accomplished by people. When we are committed, our ways and our works become what we have to do and cannot set forth as a burden. We trust in the Lord or literally, "on Him." He will do what we cannot do. He will not suffer our character to remain under suspicion.

One Fathers Testimony

Written by Kathryn Elizabeth Clarke.

It took Jesus Christ to show me,
Just how special is that place
Of a "father" - one that's caring,
That a child can just embrace.
One his children will look up to,
And will trust with all their hearts.
One to whom they'll look for counsel,
And for wisdom to impart.

Bible Gateway Verse of the Day

Jeremiah 17:9-10
“?The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it? ?I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.”
