The Word

Job 1. 18 – 19

“While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, ‘Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house:’

“‘And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.’”

What’s your goal for today? Some people’s goal is nothing but physical: lose a few ounces, walk another mile, ride x distance. Others have a financial goal: make another $100, close that deal on property, gain on investment. Still others plan to learn part of a language, master a formula, pass a history test, etc. Yet – – – the body stays here when the soul escapes, money is earth-bound, and worldly learning may have little-to-no-place in heaven. Let’s make it OUR goal to learn more Scripture (reading/repeating memory verses) and draw closer to Christ by communicating with Him and meditating on Him. Amen? They count for eternity!

O to live in the place

Where God’s shining face,

Upon us each moment He glows.

And to have, constantly,

That desire to be,

One of His little ones, that grows.

Then to move as He goes,

For He always knows

The walk our feet should take.

He’s there to keep,

Even when we’re asleep

So there isn’t any mistake.

If not, it will be very rare – and that only with great humility – if he ever becomes Real until the day of his death.

We’ll all be REAL then!
