Matthew 4:10 niv

mountains-468137_640

The third and final temptation was on a mountaintop where Satan
showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and told Jesus he would
give them to Him if Jesus would bow down and worship him.
Jesus told Satan that we are to worship God and serve only Him.
Not only did Jesus tell Satan what had been written, 
 He also told the devil to GO AWAY!

When temptations come to you do you recognize tempter?
How long do you listen before you tell him to go away?

Psalm 8:6 msg

nature-conservation-480985_640

God designed the earth, created everything,
put it all in place, and created man.
Then He gave man authority over what He had made.
God charged man with taking care of His creation.
I am not sure that we remember the charge given to us.
We seem to think we own the world we live in 
when really we are managers and caretakers.

How do you think we would fare
if we were given an evaluation of the job we are doing?

1 Corinthians 3:19a niv

jester

The world pursues knowledge at any and all cost
thinking it is wisdom being achieved.  
Knowledge is a wonderful thing but it is not wisdom.
There is more to wisdom than books and experiments and theories.  
Knowing this is the beginning of becoming wise.

Are you a “fool” for God or foolish in His sight?

Revelation 3:10 niv

approaching-storm

Everyone has trials in this world.
Because you are faithful to follow His commands
you will be spared the last trials of the world.  

Praise Him from whom all blessings flow!

Are you worried about the “end times”?
Why?

1 John 2:15

heart221

God created the earth to be our home.  
All that He created is good. 
There are things on earth that are of the world
 that were not created by God.  
If we put these things (before God) in our hearts
we are denying His love for us and our love for Him.

Is the Creator or the created first in your heart?

Blessings this day of grace,
