Suggested Reading: Matthew 12

Located in Nazareth, the first century "Nazareth Village" re-enacts life from 2000 years ago.

Key Verse: Matthew 12:35

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.”

It was 4:00 a.m. and there it was…City of Toronto garbage truck #100 stopped on Jarvis Street picking up garbage. Just the morning before on the 100 Huntley Street TV show, we had suggested that everyone put the accumulation of their life’s “garbage” out at the curb and Jesus would take it away. Any evil things you treasure will eventually destroy you if you fail to get rid of them. As you join me daily in reading the Word, you’ll know what is evil and what is good. This blog is good treasure. Store up the good things consistently every day. You’ll bless others and yourself with good things!


Dear Jesus, forgive me for all the sin and wrong I’ve done. I put all these things out of my life. You promised to take away all my sin. Thank You! I treasure the good things you’ve given me. I will bring them out to bless others. Amen!


Before moving to Burlington, Ontario, our TV studios were located in downtown Toronto. Every morning at approximately 4:00 a.m., I would drive up Jarvis Street for my early morning time in God’s Word and in prayer. I had committed to spend at least an equal time in prayer and the Word as I would spend that day on live TV (90 minutes). During the drive, a huge billboard faced me with a picture of a scantily clad woman. I was angry. I wanted only to think of my beautiful wife. After a couple of days of putting those evil thoughts “out at the curb,” I would deliberately look to the other side of the street before that billboard appeared and would pray fervently for the people of the night, that our Nite-light show — still on ’til 4:30 a.m. — would reach their hearts with the love of Jesus!

May God bless you with lots of GOOD today,

  1. Forever set before us are two paths; the paths of good and evil. These paths were first set out back in Genesis when Adam and Eve chose to disobey their Lord. As a result, all the world has since suffered the consequence of their action as ‘sin’ entered for a first time. Jesus however came to forgive us of sin, to cleanse and redeem us from sin. In 1 John 2:12 the scripture states “I am writing to you who are God’s children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus”. We are forgiven, our sins are wiped away forever and we have a new home with Jesus when we select the true and right path … and this path itself IS Jesus. Choose the path of truth, allow Jesus into your heart and start on a new and wonderful journey through life with Him today.

  2. Thank you, David, another great testimony to God’s faithful Love reaching out for all. Living under grace is “the Love of God” in action. Now abides “faith, hope, love”, these three; but the greatest of these is “LOVE”. 1 Corinthians 13:13. “God’s faithful Love abides forever!”

  3. Thanks, David, for your blessing today… I received it with gratitude and hope. Of late I’ve been discouraged in my Christian life and goals… I’ve not been feeling God’s presence or hearing from him, even though I’ve really been trying to stand for him as a Christian mother, to maintain a home where God and Christian values are pursued in our lives. I’m receiving the encouragement of hearing God speak into my situation through the Matthew readings, so I want to say Thanks!

  4. I have subscribed to receive daily emails but they’re not arriving. I did get a confirmation email initially but that was it.
    I’m enjoying this blog!

      • The next day it started arriving. I’ve had two inboxed to me since 🙂 Perhaps I was a little impatient. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR EVERYTHING xox

  5. In each of our lives there is debree which we must be willing to dispose of to so appropriate the full benefits of that which is available as we so relate and connect with Christ. Truly it is an ongoing work of grace. Jesus reaches out right where we are at to release the hope we so desperately long for. The picture truly makes this a reality also

  6. Thank you David for bringing God’s love to me each day through your blog. I have been a Christian a long time and over the years whenever there would be any trouble in my home, I noticed that if I turned on Huntley Street a beautiful peace and the presence of the Holy Spirit would fill my home.

    God bless you David. I love your blog.

    Love in Christ,
