DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 8; Psalms 38-39; Acts 3

Keep my commandments and live, and my law as the apple of thine eye; bind them upon thine fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. Proverbs 7:2-3

Solomon gave this admonition to his son. Moses gave the people of Israel similar instructions. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and might. Make Him the first in your life! Teach these things, talk about them constantly. Keep your hands from doing wrong and your eyes on the things that honour God. Giving in to temptation only ends in sorrow, regrets and a sad loss of fellowship with God.    —G. Frear

Upward still to purer heights!
Onward yet to scenes more blest,
Calmer regions, clearer lights,
Till we reach the promised rest. —W. H. How
