DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 3:1-28; Jeremiah 11:1-23; Ephesians 4:17-32

It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

“This item is guaranteed never to fail.” Such excessive advertising may deceive some, but the majority of readers understand that man-made items sooner or later, fail! Durability and permanency are qualities found uniquely in the eternal God. We are greatly strengthened spiritually when we rely upon His faithfulness. There is no “expiry date” attached to His wonderful salvation. —George Hall

Pardon for sin, and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow;
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! —Thomas O. Chisholm
