Daily Bread

Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness; let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head.
Psalm 141:5a
Truth carries life-giving properties for the soul, and without these properties the soul languishes and shrivels. Cherish and hunger for truth, my child, for it shall make you free.

—Hal M. Helms, Echoes of Eternity
Prayer of the Day

Heavenly Father, it seems that in every generation there is speculation of when the end of the age will come, and there are always events that can be found to support this speculation. Regardless of when the end happens, there is only one safe place—Jesus’s side—only he can navigate me through uncertain times. Amen.
