Devotions

Ecclesiastes 12:10
“The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.”

“Remember, however, that the words of the wise are as goads and nails. They must have points, sometimes to prick to duty, at other
times to stick fast in the memory. In every sermon or lesson there should be points. To arrest and compel attention is more important
than to please the ear. Do not refine and beautify it to such an extent that there may be nothing left to stir the conscience and lacerate the
heart.” Excerpt from FB Meyer Daily Homily 19 July 2010.

Time flies by, what used to be a burden to read due to the nature of language from FB Meyer, it now appeals to me as smooth flowing poetic devotions.

I recalled I started at a rather late stage on FB Meyer daily homily, been jumping around as I felt the language was hard to understand.
Nevertheless, thank God for the persistence, the language is now very beautiful. It flows poetically.

However, I started to appreciate FB Meyer Devotions for several reasons:
1. It is in fact a book by book, a verse selected from each chapter for devotion.
2. Which means you actually get to read a chapter each day.
3. It’s used by Church too, common topic.
4. Weekly Tuesday meeting exhortation is in sync with FB Meyer.

Today’s devotion concludes Ecclesiastes. So I have completed Proverbs and Ecc too. 🙂

Have you been reading the bible and spending time in quiet devotions with your God?
Christianity is not so much of a religion, but a relationship with the King of kings, and Lord of lords, through our redeemer, Jesus Christ.
