Let’s be sure to remember, honor and praise our Mothers on this day that has been set aside to do so (and every day) for that matter. Give your mom a call, send flowers or take her out to eat. Thank her for all that she has done for you. If your mother is no longer with you, reach out and be a blessing to someone else’s mother who mav be alone and lonely.


Betraying speech. Does your speech betray you? As Peter was denying Jesus, even to the point of cursing (certainly unbecoming of a follower of Christ) those who had been around him and heard him speak knew that Peter was a Galilean (they spoke with a burr), and that he was a disciple of Jesus. Here’s the twist, Peter was trying to deny Jesus but his speech gave him away . Of course, we would never deny that we’re followers of Jesus! Just the opposite, we try to persuade others that we’re followers of Jesus but again, does our speech betray us? Ponder that a spell, meditate on it. Do people listen to you talk and immediately know that you’re a Christian or is your speech peppered with words that reflects the world more that the church?


From the guttermost to the uttermost! There is no one so lost that God cannot save them! You may feel that you’ve gone too far, have been too bad and God cannot forgive you. Nothing could be further from the truth! My friend, God is in the saving business and He’s reaching out to you today! Trust Him today and He will save you……from the guttermost to the uttermost!


God tells us many characteristics of Himself throughout the Scriptures. Many speak of His glory and power, but this verse tells us about God’s desire to be within reach of each of us. He is the ONE Who hears our prayers. What is more personal than our deepest desires, the things we tell God when it’s just the two of us? God’s there, listening. Not just listening, but intently listening, as if we are the only one in all creation.


Have you ever thought about the fact that YOU might be the “angel” to another person? God has made all of us ambassadors, and given to all of us the ministry of reconciliation. He uses all of us as messengers – the Greek word for angel is messenger.


While cleaning the home office to make room for working from home due to Covid, I was forced to sort my library into three piles – those to keep, those to hand off to others, those to trash. Some were meaningful to me for who gave it, others for the content. It challenged me to think about why I had each book, and what would be the best place for it to be in the future. It made me think about my treasures, what I value.


The world teaches to be proud of ourselves, to boast about our accomplishments. The truth is that before a holy God no one has anything to boast about. However, if you are in Christ you do have something to glory in, someone rather. In spite of our wretchedness Jesus was willing to die on a cross for our sins. That my friend, is something to tell the world about.
