The piggy bank

Cause me to hear your loving kindness in the morning, for in you do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to you. Deliver me, o LORD; from my enemies; in you I take shelter.
Psalm 143:8.9.

The piggy bank
The Perez family’s dog started barking in the courtyard one night. Everyone got up at once. They knew that guerrilla fighters were hidden near their village. The evening before some of them had come and extorted money from them. The children clung to their parents’ hands in fear.

Amid loud banging at the front door coarse voices demanded, “Open up!” The father did so. Four threatening figures entered, grabbed him and the eldest son and made them stand by the wall. “Hand your money over!” they ordered. “Our money has already been taken,” said Mr Perez. “Then we’ll shoot you down,” the leader declared in cold blood.

One of the small girls then went up to the man and saying, “I’ll get you my piggy bank”, ran off. Before the leader grasped what was happening, she re-appeared with a few small coins and handed them over. For a moment there was silence. Then the man bent over and kissed the young child.

Without a word, the men left the house. When the door closed, the Perez family knelt down together, and the father thanked the Lord for His kind protection.

God has thousands of ways to work miracles at His disposal. A small boy once brought five barley loaves and two fish to Jesus. With them the Son of God fed five thousand men (John 6:5-13).

“As for me, I would seek God, and to God I would commit my cause – who does great things and unsearchable, marvellous things without number” (Job 5:8.9).

Today’s reading: Job 14:1-22 · Acts 9:31-43

YOU CAN BE HIS WITNESS
Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

YOU CAN BE HIS WITNESS

As a bona fide member of the Kingdom of God, you must be a proof of His power to save. Matthew 1:21 says Jesus shall save His people from sin. 1 John 1:7 says His blood cleanses us from all sins. If the power to save was demonstrated in the life of anybody at all, it was in the life of Paul. In 1 Timothy 1:15...More

BEFORE YOU GET ANGRY

Yesterday we learnt it is not right for us to get angry with God or to take offence against Him, even if we experience the deferment of our hopes. The example of John the Baptist who earlier acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah, but later doubted Him because of his painful experience of incarceration is a warning...More

Nobody Likes Me

Read: Psalm 142 | Bible in a Year: 1 Chronicles 28–29; John 9:24–41

No one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.

As a child, when I felt lonely, rejected, or sorry for myself, my mother would sometimes attempt to cheer...More
