DAILY READINGS: Exodus 25:1-40; Psalm 69:1-36; Acts 14:1-28

“Go your way, sell whatever you have…follow Me.” But he… went away sorrowful. Mark 10:21-22, NKJV

People today clamor for money. They think that wealth will satisfy. But there is something far more important than money, and the Saviour told this rich man that he lacked it. The most important thing in your life is not wealth but your soul’s salvation. To trust Christ as your Saviour is the only thing that will satisfy. Sadly, this man wasn’t prepared to do that. He literally turned his back on the best Friend he could ever have. The Lord Jesus loves us and died on a cross to save us. Don’t reject Him; trust Him today. —John M. Clegg

Only trust Him, only trust Him, only trust Him now. He will save
you, He will save you, He will save you now. —John H. Stockton

Exodus 25:1-40; Psalm 69:1-36; Acts 14:1-28

Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days. Daniel 6:10, NKJV

Believers like Daniel are needed as never before. May we, like Daniel, who “distinguished himself” (v. 3, nkjv), and against whom “no charge” was found, “because he was faithful” (v. 4, nkjv), determine to live for the Lord, no matter what the cost. Be assured, it will cost! Daniel’s strength was his faithfulness. He prayed, “as was his custom”, with expectation that God would answer his prayer. And God did answer. The lions’ mouths were shut! —Jim Comte

Take time to pray in the morning, take time to pray at noon,
Take time to pray in the evening, and keep your heart in tune. —Anon.
