DAILY READINGS: Nehemiah 3:1-32; Daniel 12:1-13; Revelation 8:1-13

They talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. Luke 24:14-15

This pair returned home after one of the saddest days in their lives. They had witnessed the cruel death of their Lord yet their conversation was about Him. How good, no matter the tragic circumstances affecting our lives, to bring the Lord into the conversation. Little did they realize the stranger who joined them was the risen Lord Himself! As they journeyed He revealed the Scriptures about Himself to them. Their response? “Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way?” (Luke 24:32). — Jim Paul

The present perplexing, the future so dim;
But this is my comfort, it matters to Him. —J. Danson Smith
