Morning Inspiration: "Give me eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money! Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word." Psalm 119:36-37 This writer had the spiritual wisdom to ask for something unnatural; a desire for God’s Word that was stronger than his love of money! Wise believers learn to ‘Keep a Light Touch’ on material things. No matter how much we think they will improve our lives; every single one of them will wear out or lose their luster. Scripture teaches that everything in this world will eventually rot, rust or burn. God's Word is different, because it is eternal. Jesus said the heavens and earth will melt away, but his words will be with us forever. Hold on tight to scripture, considering it as your greatest treasure. Living a life true to God’s Word, brings eternal rewards, beyond human measure.
Morning Inspiration: ”The greatest among you must be a servant.” Jesus, quoted in Matthew 23:11 Direct. Clear. Powerful! Jesus wastes no words in letting us know that to be considered great in His Kingdom, we must make ourselves nothing in ours. A true servant is not interested in pleasing himself, but only in doing his best for those he is dedicated to serve. Jesus Himself, the King of Kings, came to us as a humble servant. We in turn, are expected to humble ourselves to serve others, because in doing so, we are serving our Savior. How ‘great’ can we each be today?
