YOUR TREASURE CHEST


Today’s Reading: Matthew 12

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion).

 

Located in Nazareth, the first century “Nazareth Village” re-enacts life from 2,000 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!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

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!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

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-Lite show — on ’til 4:30 a.m. — would reach their hearts with the love of Jesus!

May God bless you with lots of GOOD today,

David

  1. God has given us the ability to choose. He will never force us because He has given us this responsibility of freedom of choice. Unfortunately we don’t always choose the good or right things and sometimes fall into sin. The other factor is that Satan can and will tempt us especially when we are feeling low, weak and vulnerable. As David said, if we study God’s Word, pray and continually choose that which is good and righteous over that which could lead to sin, we will be living out of the spiritual and not the carnal. The Holy Spirit is ever before us, pleading for us and will never let us go; Jesus loves us, and we must always remember that we are children of the King.

  2. May GOOD things happen to you today! I pray for complete healing that The Father isn’t done with you any time soon, the world needs you, I need you David! Bless you and yours.

    • Thank you for your devotion to the Lord David. We love you and you are such a blessing and a beautiful example to us all who seek and love and serve the Almighty God in humility. May the Lord bless you and keep you. Draw close to God and may the Lord prosper you in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
