DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 4:1-5:18; Jeremiah 12:1-17; Ephesians 5:1-21

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God… James 1:5

In our stress filled world, many are tempted to look in the wrong place for help. Some of God’s creatures illustrate this. A buzzard placed in a small pen becomes a prisoner. It needs a 10 to 12 foot run to gain flight. The bat cannot take off from a level place. It shuffles until finding elevation from which it throws itself into the air. A bee dropped into a jar will stay there until it dies, unaware of the open top, seeking escape at the bottom. Similarly, many today grope at the bottom of their circumstances, not willing to look up for help. Our instruction book is the Bible, the right source for life’s answers. —E. Dyck

Open my eyes that I may see, glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hand the wonderful key, that shall unclasp and set me free. —Clara H. Scott
