A GOLDEN PROMISE from the Bible

THE BLESSING OF GIVING

Jesus taught on the issue and makes a bold and assured expectation for you as you fully respond. He said – “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom.” Luke 6:38. The emphasis is on your great desire to bless and bestow on others that which they stand in need of. As you are taken up with blessing in this way there is sure to be a generous return for your sowing. The reaping factor will come into operation. God oversees this factor and He will make sure that as you are given over to enriching others you will not be by-passed. In fact, you will make the discovery that this is the best way to live and behave. As God blesses you, He can entrust you to give even in a bigger fashion and so bring relief to countless people. Much is to flow in your direction so open out your storehouse and abundantly communicate to others in generous ways.

Thought for the Day

WHOLESOME

The Lord desires that you know what it is be wholesome. His purpose is to have wholesome people within His kingdom evidencing all the qualities of His nature and abilities. To be a wholesome child of God means that you are in a healthy, nutritious and sound state wherein in you can be, live and work at your best in His great interests and enterprise. Where there is present deficiency in character and gifting, He desires that such should be changed by His spiritual input so that there is no lack. As you allow His Spirit, Word and Providences to operate within you, there will be the birthing and developing of factors of a heavenly order that will enrich you and make you complete ready for a greater role on earth and in preparation for the eternal world. The Lord purposes that you should be a whole person and is with you to bring this to pass. See what Peter states in 2 Peter 1:3, 4 “He hath given unto all things that pertain to life and godliness  . . . . add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; . . .” 

QUOTES TO NOTE – Dr. Billy Graham

Our government is certainly going to fall like a rope of sand if unsupported by the moral fabric of God’s Word. The moral structure in our country grew from Judeo-Christian roots. When those values are applied, they produce moral fruits. But if that structure disappears, the moral sentiment that shapes our nation’s goals will disappear with it.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

EVIL LUST – 2 Samuel 13

This is a sad episode that follows on the heels of David’s fall. One of his sons, Ammon, allows himself to be eaten up with carnal desire for his half sister Tamar. She was the daughter of another wife of David, and the brother of Absalom, who was to figure much here. He is driven with a desire to have her as his own but regrettably he did not proceed in a pure and just manner. Instead of making his feelings known to her in a loving manner he appears to be consumed with evil lust, and things went decidedly wrong.

Ammon had a supposed friend who provoked him in the wrong way. The Bible says that ‘Jonadab was a very subtle man’ – v3. The Living Bible calls him ‘a crafty friend.’ He led him into a course of action that led to the rape of Tamar and then into disowning her and this made the situation worse than ever. The deed was bad enough but made extremely worse by the hatred he then bears in his heart. It is evident that it was not love at the first but lust; true love would not have adopted this kind of deed. As later events reveal: he lost his life as a result, so what he did was not worth the experience. It became his total undoing.

How watchful we have to be over the inward cravings of the flesh! The sexual drive is a very strong factor and if not purely and perfectly kept in control can wreak havoc. History and present day revelations prove decisively that it is folly to court evil, fleshly desires because the consequence of such brings ruin and disaster. One needs to pray and ‘lead us not into temptation’ and also to make sure that we keep as much as possible ‘out of the way of temptation’. Set a guard on what you put your eyes on and what you read. Promote that which is holy and good into life.
