When I was five years old, my parents separated, and...

He chose us in him, … having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.
Ephesians 1:4.5

When I was five years old, my parents separated, and I was put into an orphanage. One day a married couple visited us, wanting to adopt a child. I saw them standing there choosing, and I hoped they would take me. I longed for a home, a father and a mother. But they took someone else.

Years passed. Many couples came and made their choice, and I always remained behind. I still hope and longed fervently: I wanted to belong somewhere. But nobody wanted me. Once I asked the housemother, “Won’t anyone have me?” she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “I don’t know. Perhaps they will one day.” But it never happened.

When I grew older, I went into other homes: hostels, transitional lodgings, places of detention. Now I have been in prison for many years. Here, for the first time ever I heard of Jesus. A preacher read the Bible with us and told us that God loves us.

I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour and started to read the Bible. I soon found the passage: “chosen in him … and predestined to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ”. There I discovered that God has chosen me and accepted me as a son! Formerly no-one wanted me; now I belong to Him. With Him I have found a new home. Through the new birth I am now a child of God and belong to God’s family.

Today’s reading: Ruth 2:1-23 · Psalm 78:1-16

Numbers 6:2-5,8


What is a Nazarite? The very word means separation, and it applies to both men and women. True victory for God’s people must be along the lines of Nazariteship, separation from all the things that the world counts as absolutely essential.

CRUELTY, EXPLOITATION & STEALING

Although God loves the sinner, He hates their sins. For example, because God hates stealing, He commanded us not to steal (Exodus 20:15). In spite of God’s commandment however, there is still so much stealing going on at workplaces these days. One way employees steal from their employers is by inflating the cost...More
