Today with Jesus
- Today’s bible verse
“With out counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed”(Proverbs 15:22)
People with tunnel vision –( those who are locked into one way of thinking-) are likely to miss the right road. Because they have closed their minds to any new options. We need the help of those who can enlarge our vision and our perspective. Seek out the advice of those who know you and have a wealth of experience. Build a net work of advisers. Then be to new ideas, and willing to weigh their suggestions carefully. Your plans will be stronger and more likely to succeed. The parting or the last words of your near and dear are always worth to follow. That are the best counsel you get from.
Here come a mother’s eulogy a mother’s letter to her children when her mother passed .
Dear Emmy and Steve:
You are a gift. It is because a mother loves her children. I believe that mother knows her child better than anyone on earth. On behalf your grand mother I write this letter to you. These are your grand mother ‘s counsel.
Lession#1: Set every clock in the house 8 minutes fast.( Prepare and plan well before you do anything.)
Lesion #2 The” dink” serve is the key to winning at tennis: a soft drop shot (Be always intelligent as a serpent and pure as a dove.)
Lession#3: even you’re mad at your kids, if the phone rings ,answer cheerfully: (Cheerfully do every thing, be patient always.)
Lession#4;Treat everyone like they’re important:(( Consider others as God in flesh)
Lession#5 Take pride in your spouse and that family comes first( don’t do anything at the expense of the family and do everything in one voice..)
Lesion #6: Give your children roots and wings(we are the custodian , God is the father of them .Early years instilled godly values in them. Then ,when the time is right, set them free.)
Lord ,in our confusion and at our cross roads we need your holy sprit’s counsel. We trust in you. Let be take all good advice from our well wishers. All we ask in the name of Jesus .Amen.
Your ever loving servant in Jesus.

- Today with Jesus
“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
