DAILY READINGS: Deut. 32:15-52; Hosea 2:1-3:5 ; Luke 17:20-18:14

Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from [our] children. Psalm 78:3-4a

A little boy, who had trusted Christ as His Saviour, lay terminally ill in the hospital. His father prayed seeking guidance as to how to tell his son he had only a very short time to live. One day, after reading and praying with his boy, he finally told him the hard news and asked, “Are you afraid to meet Jesus, son?” Blinking back tears, he bravely said, “No, not if He’s like you Dad!” Dads, grandfathers, do your children see Christ in you? Don’t neglect your God given responsibility to “bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4). —Jim Comte

Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wonderful passion and purity. —Albert Orsborn & Tom M. Jones
