APPLES OF GOLD

Today’s┬áReading: Proverbs 25

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion).

 

This is a gold aureus of the Roman Emperor Tacitus (275/276 AD) minted in Rome. It was on display at the Davidson Center at the Jerusalem Archaeological Park. As in our reading today may 100words.ca be valuable like gold. Each day we mine for the infinite value to be found in God’s Word. Like gold, words are our medium of the exchange of our thoughts.

Key Verses: Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat;

And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;

For so you will heap coals of fire on his head,

And the Lord will reward you.

 

Jesus said, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory… [then this mighty King of the universe will say,] ‘I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink.'” However, God’s love is so great that He entered humanity as a little Baby, grew into manhood, gave us teaching, and we crucified Him. When He returns, the first thing He will do is judge us as to how we’ve cared for the hungry and thirsty. Amazing!!! The least we can all do is help others in deep need.

Proverbs 25:11 says, “A word fitly spoken is like APPLES OF GOLD…” Crossroads produced a movie by that title back in 1979. Part of the film detailed the atrocities committed by terrorists in Israel and beyond. Copies sold around the world and all proceeds went to help terrorist victims by procuring prosthesis for both Jews and Arabs in Israel and the Palestinian territories. It played first in the Jerusalem theatre and then for ten years weekly in major Jerusalem Hotels. The Crossroads Family of Ministries works hard as our partners (you) enable us to communicate in a wise way with words “fitly spoken” accompanied by powerful visual messages.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord God, I pray for You to put a watch over my mouth so that I will say only what You want me to say. By Your grace may I communicate carefully like those “apples of gold,” crafted with tender loving care. Help me also to do my part in caring for needy people. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!!!

100 PERSONAL WORDS

Some time ago the 100 Huntley Street daily telecast featured a New King James Study Bible with Dr. David Jeremiah’s notes and commentaries. Thomas Nelson Publishers has published a special edition of the Scriptures with excellent study materials and lots of excellent features. Here is a recent interview with Dr. Jeremiah about this new study Bible. Also, here is where you can purchase this new Bible for a Christmas gift! Good suggestion!!!

Yours for feeding the hungry, speaking words fitly, and for a new beginning in Bible study for the New year,

David

    Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
    Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.

  2. That is a beautiful song Beverlee I downloaded the whole music album on my iPad awhile ago. I know God said we can do anything, but I cannot do Jeremiah’s
    study. It has to be easy.
    Have a good day everyone, and for those who need prayer you are in mine

  3. Always good to open the Word in this daily blog, and to pray the prayer with David and read his comments and exhortations. Bless you and thank you Ron and Ann!!

    Thank you Beverlee and Lianne for your input. Have a glorious day in the Lord!!

  4. good day to all, I am awake a bit earlier today! PTL!
    I ask God to help me speak the right words to others, it seems that people hear my tone and IMMEDIATELY think I am being rude! BUT I AM NOT! I am anxious about life and every day living and I love the Lord and when I speak it appears I get into trouble………someone told me not to speak because this person knows how much I love the Lord and I am so eager to tell people what God has done in my life and the devil doesn’t like this idea so he tries to make problems!
    I have been rebuking the devil for months; Eph 4:27, I am continuing to ask for prayer in the area of my finances and I am continuing in praising and thanking the Lord for all that HE has done in my life…..
    I like all the prayers on this blog and the music, well, what can I say, it is so inspiring, TY Beverlee……
    I pray the Lord will watch over all those who are ill, that HE will bring healing to those is need; that HE will provide all that we need
    I pray for our leaders in Canada and the United States
    May the Glory of the Lord SHINE THROUGH THE DARKNESS!
