DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 13:24-59; Psalm 118:1-29; Mark 4:1-20

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Psalm 53:1

To be a fool is to be without common sense or wisdom. The wise man will contemplate creation and marvel. He sees that earth orbits the sun at the right distance to sustain life. He delights in the great lakes without which no life would survive. He is amazed at the countless species of plant and animal life. He studies his own body and marvelous brain and stands in awe. All of this proclaims a Creator, infinitely wise and powerful. Only a fool will say that there is no God. Do not be a fool. Come to know God through the Lord Jesus Christ. —Donald L. Norbie

I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day,
The moon shines forth at His command and all the stars obey.
—Isaac Watts

Leviticus 13:24-59; Psalm 118:1-29; Mark 4:1-20

Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. John 6:68

Simon Peter answered his own question, “Lord, to whom shall we go?”. He knew there was nowhere else to turn and no one else to go to for the words of eternal life. Jesus is the only source. He is the eternal Word, which was in the beginning with God and was God (John 1:1-3). He is the incarnate Word that became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14). He is the final Word, after all that God had spoken in various times and ways when He spoke “by his Son” (Heb. 1:1-3). Jesus is the living Word we can read about in written form every day. —Rex Trogdon

Sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life. —Philip P. Bliss
