Your daily guide, posted Sunday-Thursday by 6am, to take what we are learning from loving it to living it!
Learn It - Luke 17:1-10
1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
7 But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?
8 And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?
9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.
10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
Love It - Letter 72, November 14, 1893
“I beseech you, Father and children with affectionate obedience commit yourself wholly to obey the truth, because it is truth. Evidence before God, and before Jesus Christ and the holy angels that you now believe and accept Christ as your personal Saviour; and believe His promise the moment you surrender your will and your heart to God, Christ takes you as His child. Listen not to the temptations of Satan to wait for deeper conviction, just walk in the path of obedience believing Jesus Christ to forgive your sins, because He said He would."
Forgiveness is as much a duty to others, as it is the unending privilege of the believing child of God. We may come to God as freely as we give, that we might give as freely as we receive. So, let's give today. Simply put - give something, anything, to someone. It could be an item or a service. No strings attached, or gift wrapping required. Just engage in the act of freely giving today. Please let us know how it goes for you in the comments below!
