Today's Scripture: "You shall make the robe of the ephod all of blue." Ex 28:31
6001. A grateful spirit uses and maintains things with care. JG
When my computer makes strange sounds and the screen goes dark, I'm not sure it's coming back. But when the sky turns dark and nature whines, I know blue skies are coming. The royal robe of the High Priest was a sign of Messianic majesty, something most Jews claim to believe. But they are not willing to admit that Jesus was the sacrificial Lamb of God that Isaiah foretold and their fathers conspired to kill.
Last night a man in my class at rehab asked where he could get a copy of my new book. I had one copy in my bag so I gave it to him. I later signed it with a note of encouragement. Another man in the back complained because he'd expressed interest in it before anyone else. I felt bad at first, but then thought it a great spiritual lesson: wanting something falls short of asking for it. I'll carry another book next week in anticipation of seeing that second man again, but I will not carry more than one. That's because it cost me $20 to give two away, but it will be a priceless sermon illustration in the future.
Thank You, Jesus, that I did not have to beg for mercy, because You were ready to give it to me.
