DAILY READINGS: Deut. 6:1-7:11; Eccl. 8:1-9:10; Luke 8:22-39

But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” Genesis 3:9

God missed His child. That hour of fellowship meant much to Adam, and it meant more to God. How sad it was when that
beautiful fellowship was broken by sin and disobedience. God did not wait till Adam found his way back to His side, but He
hastened in search of him. God knew the answer to the question, “Where are you?” but Adam didn’t understand that he was lost, condemned, and ready to die—just as many today don’t realize it. Still the good Shepherd is seeking lost sheep to bring them home to the eternal fold. Have you come to Him? —Milton Haack

Seeking the lost, yes, kindly entreating, wanderers on the mountain
astray; Come unto Me, His message repeating, words of the Master
speaking today. —Anonymous
