Deuteronomy 33:1-29; Hosea 4:1-6:3; Luke 18:15-43

Ye have said, it is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? Malachi 3:14

The last book of the Old Testament mirrors our present day with alarming accuracy. Surrounded by a fallen race of those who only seek self-gratification, many of us have fallen prey to the current atmosphere of selfishness.

Give me a faithful heart—likeness to Thee,
That each departing day, henceforth may see, some work of love begun, Some deed of kindness done—something for Thee. —S. D. Phelps
