Cavern Full of Gems

Story of the day:  Cavern Full of Gems

Each human soul is like a cavern full of gems.  The casual observer glances into it through some cranny, and all looks dark and sullen and useless.  But let light enter into it and lo!  It will flash with crystals and amethysts and quiver under the touch of brightness.  If souls do not shine before you it is because you bring them no light to make them shine.  Throw away your miserable, smoldering, fuming torch of conceit and hatred, lift up to them the light of love, and lo!  They will arise and shine; yea, flame and burn with an undreamt of glory[Canon Farrar]

Quote of the day:  Helmut Thielicke

“The gospel must be preached afresh and in new ways to every generation, since every generation has its own unique questions.  The gospel must constantly be forwarded to a new address, because the recipient is repeatedly changing his place of residence.”

Bible verse of the day:  2 Corinthians 2:14

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

I lift up my praise to You Father that it may be a sweet fragrance to You.  May all the things that I do this day bring honor and glory to Your Name.  When I come into a room full of friends or strangers, may my light shine so brightly that Your Name becomes famous.  I thank You for this blessed day, and I love You with all of my heart!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
