Bits of Information & Inspiration

Today in History

1521 – German reformer Martin Luther wrote in a letter: “The authority of Scripture is greater than the comprehension of the whole of man’s reason.”

Inspirational Words

Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.
Proverbs 11:28 (NIV)

Today’s Word

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
James 1:27 (NIV)

Thoughts on the Word

Martin Luther’s words of wisdom, “The authority of Scripture is greater than the comprehension of the whole of man’s reason” have a rightness often ignored in our present time. True religion is not all talk. We must live and love as Christ did. Caring for widows, orphans, and others that are forgotten and overlooked while we are keeping ourselves holy to God is what “Christ living” is all about. This is not just a concept or an ideal… it is the WORD.

Prayer for Today

Loving God, give me eyes to see the people that need your blessing. Please lead me to the folks in our church, our neighborhood, and our work or school that feel forgotten and overlooked. Help me to not only see them, but to include them so they can know the love that you have for them! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
