DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 24:1-25:31; Ezekiel 22:1-31; John 8:12-30

My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother. Proverbs 6:20

When the father of the house is away at work for much of the day, how important the role of the mother. It is good to hear one’s children praising their mother for teaching them bible verses and principles in their early years. What a wonderful support this is for the father whose responsibility it is to bring up the family in the fear of the Lord. —Brian Russell

Count your blessings name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done. —Johnson Oatman

DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 24:1-25:31; Ezekiel 22:1-31; John 8:12-30

…They shall never perish. John 10:28, KJV

Wonderful words, and they mean exactly what they say! “Never” is a long time! Yes, there are some people who will never perish, who are safe forever in the hands of the Lord. They have eternal life, because the Lord Himself has given it to them. Are you one of those people? The Lord tells how to recognize them; they hear His voice and follow Him. They don’t just know things about Him, they belong to Him personally, and He keeps them forever. If you have never heard His voice and decided to follow Him, let today be the day! —Carl Knott

Jesus , my Lord, will love me forever, from Him no power of evil can
sever; He gave His life to ransom my soul—now I belong to Him!
