Daily Thought – Choosing the right portion!!

Word:  And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41,42.

Thought: What is our everyday worry about – is it regarding things temporal or eternal? We all know by heart “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”, but what are the things we seek and worry about. We spend more time in seeking and worrying ‘all these things’ than Seeking ‘God’. We start to worry about things at hand and many things about the future which we are not certain about and we are troubled and concerned of those, but God has called us to be concerned only about His kingdom and carry this load His yoke which is easy and light and not to be worried about the things we are concerned in this world, since He who feeds the sparrows and clothes the flowers will certainly provide all these things which are worried about. We are concerned about things which do not matter – we spend a lot of time, money and energy is working for things which are not worth it and worried about the outcome, while we forget to chose the good part. Only one thing is needed for us – we are just on our journey to the destination and the path we traverse should be least concerned when we have the beautiful destination in mind. We should be only planning and worried about reaching the destination and concerned about others who might miss the destination and not worried about little things which come on the way – Let us choose the right portion and the right path!!

Prayer: Dear Lord, please help us choose the right path – let us not be worried and concerned about the things of the world, but be concerned about the glory and expansion of your kingdom on earth. Amen.


Daily Thought – Meekness of wisdom!!

Word: Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. James 3:13

Thought: It is very important for us to discern that our wisdom is from God or from the world. We could discern as James explains by the way in we tend to demonstrate the wisdom – is it with the humility of the heart with all meekness or with bitter envy and strive. We deceive ourselves by saying we are diplomatic and we should handle politically, but the wisdom from above is not to be diplomatic or political, because it is pure wisdom and will always pursue what is truth with all humility and our thoughts, words and deeds should be in accordance to it. As Jesus grew in wisdom and when He was in the middle of the elders in the church, He demonstrated the wisdom with humility and yet people admired Him. Have we tried to get the wisdom, knowledge and understanding from above and able to go to the place which God has placed us and demonstrate the wisdom in purity with all humility – let us always see for ourselves and not be deceived that we are going with the wisdom from above. Let us ask and receive the wisdom from God “”If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him”. Let us not try to gain our wisdom from the gurus of the world, but from the pure word of God which gives us the wisdom which no one could fathom.

Prayer: Dear Lord, please grant us the wisdom from above and let us not be crowded with the wisdom of the world and let people around us experience the meekness of our wisdom. Amen.
