Brief post today.  Back to a full post tomorrow.  🙂

New Testament Bible.org’s commentary on Luke chapter 20’s readings today titled “One Bride for Seven Brothers” is at this link and commentary titled “David’s Son” is at this link.

Psalms I love Psalm 89:15 today: “Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.” Do you hear the joyful call to worship in your life? Do you worship God with a community of believers each week?  (i.e. at a church…)  Will you choose to walk in the light of God’s presence each week?

Proverbs – Proverbs 13:18 is so so so true: “If you ignore criticism, you will end in poverty and disgrace; if you accept criticism, you will be honored.”  I know this may sound strange, but I’m trying to get to the point in my life where I actually appreciate criticism and appreciate making mistakes.  It means I’m learning.  And the key to receiving criticism is indeed to not ignore it.  Reflect on it.  Pray on it.  And yes, sometimes the criticism will be unfounded.  But sometimes it may literally save your life…  Let us be open and appreciative to constructive criticism!  And let us not ignore it!  Nor try to escape from it…

Criticism

Worship God: Psalm 89:15 reminds me of Chris Tomlin’s song “Made to Worship:”

Please join us in memorizing and meditating on a verse of Scripture today: “If you ignore criticism, you will end in poverty and disgrace; if you accept correction, you will be honored.” Proverbs 13:18 NLT

Prayer Point:

  • Pray that you will not ignore criticism and end up in poverty and disgrace.
  • Pray that you will accept correction and then honor.

How are you doing in accepting criticism in your life today?  Do you accept it?  Receive it?  Learn from it?  Or perhaps… ignore it?
