Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness,
According to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.
With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful;
With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;
With the pure You will show Yourself pure;
And with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd.
For You will save the humble people, But will bring down haughty looks.
For You will light my lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
[Psalm 18:24-28 NKJV]
As a pause in our study of John’s gospel, we feel The Lord’s guidance to explore some thoughts in another direction. Below, you will find a word from Oswald Chambers’ “Devotions For A Deeper Life” for today.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (John 10:27).
Grousing destroys generosity like a moth does a garment, slowly but completely.
MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS…
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
