Today’s Thought (August 02): God’s mercy upon all

God’s judgements are necessary surgical operations. His mercy is over all His works; and this mercy falls first on Israel. A divine transformation is wrought upon the people whose stony-heartedness has become proverbial, and whose whole history is a testimony of waywardness. The few great and godly men that the nation has produced, among whom… Read More Today’s Thought (August 02): God’s mercy upon all

Today’s thought “God not living in houses” (April 29)

Today’s thought “Fear-of-God, also in times of war, is a school in skilled living” (April 05)

In these days, when we get to see horrible pictures of war crimes, we see enough proof of how man has gone far away from the precepts or prescriptions of God. We can wonder what would have gone into those heads of soldiers who raped and tortured those people in Ukraine. Clearly there have been… Read More Today’s thought “Fear-of-God, also in times of war, is a school in skilled living” (April 05)

Today’s thought: “Search me, O God, and know my heart” (March 18)

Do we really want God to know our heart? The concluding words of Psalm 139 are some of the most challenging in Scripture.

Today’s thought “What sort of people ought you to be …” (December 15)

As Peter completes his second letter he asks a question “Since all these things are thus to be dissolved what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of the Lord …” (3:11,12).

Today’s thought “Not by man but With God is the sum total of all wisdom and of all power” (December 10)

From friends you must have it. They may speak wisely but also can utter foolishness. Job tells his friends that they take an attitude as if they know everything. His friends might be the voice of the people. Job warns them that when they die, wisdom will die with them. (Job 12:1-2) In the previous… Read More Today’s thought “Not by man but With God is the sum total of all wisdom and of all power” (December 10)

Today’s thought “Those following the policies of the wrong leaders and popular people” (December 08)

In this world a lot of people may have it much better than we, but we should not worry about our “lesser situation” but think about the way they might have become wealthy or how they tried to gather and save their money. (Micah 6:12; 14) We might find lots of people who love to… Read More Today’s thought “Those following the policies of the wrong leaders and popular people” (December 08)

Today’s thought “The grace of God … training us” (November 27) When I was a child I remember the word Grace as being what was said before a meal, words of thanksgiving and that, up to a point, is what it means.

Today’s thought “All the people were attentive” (November 20)

We have three interesting and challenging readings today. Nehemiah describes how “all the people were attentive” (8:3) when the books of Moses were read to them. They answered, “‘Amen, Amen,’ lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD” (verse 6). They were told, “this day is holy to our Lord.… Read More Today’s thought “All the people were attentive” (November 20)
