Day 331

Today’s Reading -I and II Thessalonians

We always thank God for all of you when we mention you constantly in our prayers.

I Thessalonians 1:2 CEB

There is not much we can say that we ALWAYS do.

Yet, here is Paul saying that he always give thanks for these people.

It is good to know that others are praying for you.

It is good to know that others give thanks for you.

It is even better to be the one giving thanks.

It isn’t too late to give thanks . . . or let someone know you are thankful for them!


Day 330

Today’s Reading – Acts 17

Paul stood up in the middle of the council on Mars Hill and said, “People of Athens, I see that you are very religious in every way.  As I was walking through town and carefully observing your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: ‘To an unknown God.’  What you worship as unknown, I now proclaim to you.  Acts 17:22-23 CEB

Everyone has faith.

It’s just interesting when you discover what ‘it’ is that you have placed your faith in.

What do you put your faith in?

What do you worship as most important in your life?

Day 329

Today’s Reading – Galatians 4-6
If we live by the Spirit, let’s follow the Spirit.
Let’s not become arrogant, make each other angry, or be jealous of each other.
Galatians 5:25-26 CEB
It has been said that the church is the only place where we shoot our wounded.

When you read these words in Galatians, you realize how much we have to learn as a community of believers.
