“My dear friend, I pray that everything may go well with you and that you may be in good health—as I know you are well in spirit.”
3 John 1:2 (GNT)
Scripture for the day
James 1:9-11 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS) The brother who is poor may be glad because God has called him to the true riches. 10-11 The rich may be glad that God has shown him his spiritual poverty. For the rich man, as such, will wither away as surely as summer flowers. One day the sunrise brings a scorching wind; the grass withers at once and so do all the flowers—all that lovely sight is destroyed. Just as surely will the rich man and all his extravagant ways fall into the blight of decay.
[reference for verse 9: Jeremiah 9:23–24; for verse 11: Psalms 49:16–17; 103:15–16; Isaiah 40:6–8]
Thought for the day
Many years ago I decided to search God’s word to know why so many of us—the children of God—are not rich or wealthy. What I mean, we do not have the best cars, homes, large bank accounts, etc. Some ministers teach what is now known as “prosperity gospel” and probably live so and convince those who listen that the message is from God. I am not here to judge, but guide you to the truth. The approach is to study the life of Jesus and the Apostles using the word of God. Are they not examples that we should follow? In 1 Corinthians 11:1 (RKJNT) Be imitators of me, just as I am of Christ. How did Jesus—God in the flesh—live? After all He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Did you ever wonder why Jesus (God with us) did not own a house or mansion? A carpenter that did not build a place to live for himself, hmm have you ever wondered why not? —Tim.
