Birds

Today’s verse uses a bird to speak to us check out Proverbs 27:8 (http://bit.ly/2MShM9r). Imagine for a moment your “nest” is your home. Have you felt recently that things are a bit out of control, a tad hectic? The bird in our Bible verse has strayed too far from home and is exposing itself and its chicks to unnecessary risk.

Ants

Eish, I know today is going to be pretty busy! But there will be times when you just can’t decide what to do – and end up doing nothing. You’re not alone: we all do it.

Here’s a challenge to get a grip and be inspired by the humble ant. Proverbs 6:6-8 (http://bit.ly/2MStMHM) describes this nifty bug: busy, active, on a mission! We don’t need someone looking over our shoulders to check if we are being productive. It should come from inside us.

Get busy today knowing that God uses ordinary ants like you and me to do some pretty amazing things!

Wig snatched!

In movies and real life, a crisis reveals the shocking truth about people (like a wig snatched off someone’s head). Gasp! It’s interesting to see who acts heroically, who falls apart and who selfishly only saves themselves.

“If you fall to pieces in a crisis, there wasn’t much to you in the first place.” (Proverbs 24:10 – http://bit.ly/3166uBx). We are children of the Most High God. The Holy Spirit lives inside us. We are supernaturally strengthened, empowered and equipped. So remember that next time you find yourself in a crisis. Stand firm. You and God have got this!

Woke

Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a protective bubble where everyone lived “happily ever after”? Unfortunately we live in a fallen world where terrible, evil things can and do happen.

But don’t despair!
As Christ-followers we need to be woke to these realities and listening for how God wants us to look after the lost and forgotten. “Rescue the perishing; don’t hesitate to step in and help. If you say, “Hey, that’s none of my business,” will that get you off the hook?” (Proverbs 24:11 – http://bit.ly/30UEXCW). Ignorance is no excuse. We’re part of the rescue crew so it’s time to wake up!
