Thought for Today

Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,   therefore, behold, I will again do wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden Is 29:13–14.

May God Forgive You

  There was a situation in which a passenger on a motorcycle felt that the driver of the car behind them put them at risk because there was an overtake attempt that was aborted.

Witness of the Glory of God

The Lord is God and he is slow to anger, he forgives the repentant heart and does not take away his mercy and compassion. In the passage, we see the result of the whining of the people of Israel. It is interesting to note that they decided it was worth going right back to Egypt after hearing the testimony of the 10 spies after the 12 came back with the report of what they had seen in the land which 'flows with milk and honey'. At this point, they had no remorse or recourse to the experience of God arising
