1 Kings 4:1-5:18; Jeremiah 12:1-17; Ephesians 5:1-21
But godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:6
Sometimes publishers put out a book with a new cover but with
the old content inside. It is a good object lesson about our lives
and the danger of hypocrisy. It is what is inside that truly matters.
Effective servants must regularly nourish their inner man
with prayer and God’s Word which strengthens us. Vigilant servants
must also avoid “junk food” that takes away our spiritual
appetite. If spiritually malnourished, we must compel ourselves
to “eat” to recover lost appetite. —George Ferrier
Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.
— William D. Longstaff
