A Daily Devotion for Friday, September 25

Matthew 11:15-19

verses 18-19 “For John came neither eating or drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking , and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.”’ But wisdom is proved right by her actions.”

In these verses Jesus reminds me I need to look beyond the surface of people, and of things. We are quick to judge based on appearances. This can lead to small misunderstandings but can also lead us to misunderstand vitally important people, events and relationships. What if I took the chance each time I met someone new, and just allowed a new relationship to begin? Would I learn something important? Would this bring me closer to God? Would I see beyond the surface and recognize the gifts that person has to offer the world? Is this part of the wisdom we are after?

Holy Father, I know you place people in my path for a reason. Help me to stop and meet with them. I believe this is part of your path to wisdom. I pray for your help to understand. Amen

Becky, transforming

Prayer - “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit…



20200925 Fri, Daily Devotion - Matthew 11:19

“Wisdom is justified/proved right/vindicated by her deeds.”

One of my most often thoughts these days is we have too much knowledge than what we do. Especially as a pastor, I talk too much compared to what I live out with my physical body. I feel I have to reduce my words and do more than what I said.

This verse helps me to confirm that “Wisdom proved, justified, and vindicated by my deeds.”

Father, God thank You for reaffirming my thought with Your Word. Help and guide me to be a truly wise man in Your eyes. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
