Devotional - Saturday, December 23, 2017 357/8

Today's Scripture: "The lazy man will not plow because of winter; he will beg during harvest and have nothing." Pr. 20:4

6032. I'm able today because I worked yesterday like there'll be no tomorrow. JG

Live it.

Recently in nursing school, my granddaughter was asked to write her own obituary, a process she thought was a waste of time. Her attitude is understandable as most young people feel invincible and there's no need to think about death. I commend the teacher who gave this project to students. It's healthy to assess one's life and think about the unthinkable. An even better project might be to write your own tombstone epitaph. In other words, what is your life's purpose in a few words?

The men I teach in rehab are much younger than me and are usually amazed as to how much Scripture I've memorized. They notice that I don't use notes or have an outline and seldom read the Scripture I reference. Years ago a preacher friend of mine told me that he never looked at people when he preached in order to stay on point. I rejected that idea and have always looked people in the eyeballs and engage them on every question. If God won't give me words to say, I need to be quiet. Who would have thought that a frightened and worried man who once stuttered, would one day face his worst enemy and laugh in his face?

Pray it.

My confidence is in You, Lord, and not in anything this world can do for me.
