Today’s thought “You know neither the scriptures nor …” (August 17)

Today’s thought “You know neither the scriptures nor …” (August 17) We saw today in Mark 12 how Jesus challenged those who distort God’s word. This word, to them, was what we call the ‘Old Testament’. These equally inspired words are largely ignored today despite the wonderful discovery of scrolls of all of the books… Read More Today’s thought “You know neither the scriptures nor …” (August 17)

Today’s thought Mark 9 A voice out of the cloud declaring Jesus to be His son (August 14)

Today we come to read in Mark 9 how Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain. What they came to see onto that mountains was special.

Today’s thought “Do not become proud, but fear” (August 2)

Today’s thought “Do not become proud, but fear” (August 2) Can we “become proud” because our regular reading and meditation on God’s word results in us seeing more and more of its meaning!? Could we become somewhat like those who succeed in completing a very large and complex, but wonderful jigsaw (if such exists)?

“Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him” (Mat 13:12).

Today’s thought “… and learn from me” (July 10)

Today’s thought “… and learn from me” (July 10) The final verses of Matthew 11 are easy to read, but they are also profound – and demand our meditative understanding.
