  1. Today's Thought

    -- Luke 12:35-40


    35"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night. 39But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

    Jesus had just urged his disciples to invest in things that are eternal
    Now he reminds them to be ready for the
    beginning of this eternal future. His coming is near, so be ready. His
    coming will be unexpected by many, so be ready. In addition, there is a
    great blessing for those of us who are looking for his coming and are
    ready for his return. Are you ready?
  2. We should always focus on being ready, watching as if his coming could be today!
    Thank you for that!
  3. A thought for today:
    1Ch 29:9 Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.
    1Ch 29:10 Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.
    1Ch 29:11 Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
  4. 1Ch 29:14 But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
    1Ch 29:15 For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
    1Ch 29:16 O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.
    everything we receive is from God and it is a sign of a true heart when we rejoice in givng back into His kingdom!
  5. Amen brother Larry,
    We serve an almighty God who gives good gifts to His children. Why wouldn't we praise Him in whom to know is life eternal.?
