APPLES OF GOLD

Today’s Reading: Proverbs 25

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

 

This is a gold aureus of the Roman Emperor Tacitus (275/276 AD) minted in Rome. It was on display at the Davidson Center at the Jerusalem Archaeological Park. As in our reading today may 100words.ca be valuable like gold. Each day we mine for the infinite value to be found in God’s Word. Like gold, words are our medium of the exchange of our thoughts.

Key Verses: Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat;

And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;

For so you will heap coals of fire on his head,

And the Lord will reward you.

 

Jesus said, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory… [then this mighty King of the universe will say,] ‘I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink.'” However, God’s love is so great that He entered humanity as a little Baby, grew into manhood, gave us teaching, and we crucified Him. When He returns, the first thing He will do is judge us as to how we’ve cared for the hungry and thirsty. Amazing!!! The least we can all do is help others in deep need.

Proverbs 25:11 says, “A word fitly spoken is like APPLES OF GOLD…” Crossroads produced a movie back in 1979 titled “Apples of Gold.” Part of the film detailed the atrocities committed by terrorists in Israel and beyond. Copies sold around the world and all proceeds went to help terrorist victims by procuring prosthesis for both Jews and Arabs in Israel and the Palestinian territories. It played first in the Jerusalem theatre and then for ten years weekly in major Jerusalem Hotels. The Crossroads Family of Ministries works hard as our partners (you) enable us to communicate in a wise way with words “fitly spoken” accompanied by powerful visual messages.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord God, I pray for You to put a watch over my mouth so that I will say only what You want me to say. By Your grace may I communicate carefully like those “apples of gold,” crafted with tender loving care. Help me also to do my part in caring for needy people. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!!!

100 PERSONAL WORDS

Some time ago the 100 Huntley Street daily telecast featured a New King James Study Bible with Dr. David Jeremiah’s notes and commentaries. Thomas Nelson Publishers has published a special edition of the Scriptures with excellent study materials and lots of excellent features. Here is an interview with Dr. Jeremiah about this new study Bible. Also, here is where you can purchase this new Bible for a Christmas gift! Good suggestion!!!

Yours for feeding the hungry, speaking words fitly, and for a new beginning in Bible study for the New year,

David

  1. Wow! So much Wisdom in Proverbs (as I‘be said before). But really, isn’t that the Truth? Had a big power outage in our area this a.m. but we seem to be on track now, thankfully. Have a Wonderful day all. (missing Beverlee’s comments & music additions). Bless her Lord, in Jesus Name. Amen. Blessings all.

    • I also miss Beverlee’s comments and her music selection .I pray she comes back. A few years ago I purchased several Dr. Dave. Jeremiah study bibles and is the so very helpful in understanding of God’s word…Blessings to you and all the other bloggers . WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER . Amen.

  2. “If the godly give in to the wicked, it’s like polluting a fountain or muddying a spring.”
    -Prov 25:26

    As I read through Proverbs, one message comes through loud and clear: what you say and what you do have to match.

    Dear Lord God, I know I am guilty of not doing the things I know are right. Please forgive me. Help me today to do things that are right and helpful for others. Have Your way in all this world, and in me also.
    Thank You for restraining evil in this world. Bless and send out all Your people as workers for Your harvest, in Jesus’s great name, amen

  3. Amen Rob and to the other comments,
    I have been enjoying Proverbs and I also felt led to agree with David’s prayer for myself.
    I also miss Beverlee on this blog hope you will come back on soon.🙏
