Leviticus 24:1-23; Psalms 137:1-138:8; Mark 9:33-50

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth. Ecclesiastes 12:1

Fourteen year old, cancer-filled Celeste had a choice to make as her life was slipping away. She chose to meet with a number of Hollywood celebrities. Her mother said, “They were the people she desperately wanted to meet”. She did, but there was no desire to meet God, and He the one she was soon to meet. Ancient Amos had valuable, God-given, advice when he said, “prepare to meet thy God” (Amos 4:12). Regardless of age, we must all meet God. Acts 16:31 tells us, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”. Do so this very moment. —Arnot P. McIntee

I come to Jesus, He will take my hand,
He will kindly lead me to a better land. —Fanny J. Crosby
