DCLM Daily Manna, Saturday March 19, 2016 by Pastor Kumuyi – Walking With Christ

Topic: Walking With Christ [Saturday March 19, 2016]

Text: Proverbs 13:18-25

Key Verse: “Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed”(Proverbs 13:21).

As it is with every line of inspired Scripture, the book of Proverbs delivers wisdom-laden instructions, designed to uplift man both on the spiritual and physical levels. One ignores them to one’s peril. But because God desires that we live and not perish through ignorance, he packaged life-saving instructions; firstly, for the sinner to appropriate and be saved.

Secondly, for the backslider to consider and retrace his steps and lastly, for the redeemed to read and stay on course in the narrow path leading to heaven. Verse 18 of today’s text speaks of the dire consequences of rejecting the discipline of God’s instruction. But those who heed correction are honoured. How about the sinner whose manual is the article of conduct produced in the devil’s workshop? Verse 21 says misfortune will pursue him. The righteous will take over his wealth eventually. Prosperity, however, is the reward of the righteous.

There is a word for the child-pampering parent. Unknown to a mother or father, they hate their child if they refuse to apply the rod of correction when the child errs. You show a right balance of training and discipline when you reveal the tough side of chastisement. That is the work of true love according to the Lord: “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent” (Revelation 3:19).Above all, the Scripture makes it clear that one can only be wise when he walks with wise men.

The scriptural application is that we can only receive great nuggets of wisdom brewed in heaven when we walk with Jesus Who is Wisdom personified. Why not strive for the fulness of God which is embodied in our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ?

Thought for the day: Knowing God and accepting Jesus as Lord is the pathway to abundant life.

Candour

Candour

It amazes me sometimes how people react to those outside their ranks and how they tend to jump into quick conclusions on issues with outright bias to their sentiments , and having a tendency to cause friction in good relationships.
Candour is a disposition to form a fair and impartial judgment on the opinions and actions of others; or a temper of mind unsoured by envy, unruffled by malice, and unseduced by prejudice; sweet without weakness, and impartial without rigour. Candour is a word which, in the present day, is found exceedingly convenient. To the infidel it is a shelter for his scepticism, to the ignorant for his ignorance, to the lukewarm for his indifference, and to the irreligious for their error. “True candour is different from that guarded, inoffensive language, and that studied openness of behaviour, which we so frequently meet with among men of the world. It consists not in fairness of speech only, but in fairness of heart. It is not blind attachment, external courtesy, or a time-serving principle. Exempt, on the one land, from the dark jealousy of a suspicious mind, it is no less removed, on the other, from that easy credulity which is imposed on by every specious pretence. Its manners are unaffected, and its professions sincere. ‘It conceals faults, but it does not invent virtues. In fine, it is the happy medium between undistinguishing credulity and universal suspicion.”
This is how we know those formed in character.

The Value of the Life you live is not measured by how much you possess but by how much you are willing to sacrifice for Others.

We find great fulfilment in our living here on earth by helping other creatures of God find relief to their problems.
Sometimes, we need to go out of our ways and take the necessary pains in order to save one or two lives who are at the end of their roads.
This is the reason God didn’t place us alone, but gave us some neighbours to expend our love on.
