Not Yet Revealed (1 John 3.2)

Proverbs 17:10 - A rebuke goes deeper into one who has understanding Than a hundred blows into a fool.
Words to Ponder
Devotion signifies a life given, or devoted, to God. He therefore is the devout man, who lives no longer to his own will, or the way and spirit of the world, but to the sole will of God, who considers God in everything, who serves God in everything, who makes all the parts of his common life, parts of piety, by doing everything in the name of God, and under such rules as are conformable to His glory. - William Law, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life

Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Av 28'

Humility is spiritual strength, not weakness. In the above Scripture, the Syrophoenician woman humbly acknowledges her social position.

A further characteristic of a fool, says Solomon, is that he cannot control his anger. If a boss is hot-headed then don't react in the same way, he instructs us (v. 4).

Encamps

Encamps - As a child, I often went camping with my family. We set up our tent and rolled out the sleeping bags.

As God's people traveled, they constantly moved…… — (click here to read more)

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — August 20

Failing in his frontal attacks upon the child of God, Satan often turns to more subtle means of achieving his evil purpose. He resorts to devious methods in his attempt to divert the Christian from carrying out the task God has committed to him. He often succeeds by involving the saint in some other lesser occupation and so distracting him. Nehemiah,… … — (click here to read more)
