Spread the Good Word: Psalm 119:165

Today's Good Word is one of hope for the future. When you think about our world today, it may be difficult to believe that someday everyone will know the glory of the Lord.

Spread the Good Word: 2 John 1:6

Have you ever wondered how you can show more love to the people around you? Today's Good Word gives a hint.

In fact, this verse and the surrounding verses draw a strong connection between loving one another and keeping God's commandments, as if they're almost reciprocal. If you do one you'll do the other. We can best love others when we're doing our best to be like Christ.

Spread the Good Word: 1 Samuel 15:22

Today's Good Word comes from a particularly memorable moment in the Old Testament where God tells Saul, the king of Israel, to do battle against the Amalekites and to utterly destroy them and all that they have.

Saul destroyed most everything and everyone — except the king and the best of the livestock. Saul figured it was a good idea to make an example of the king and sacrifice the animals to God. 

Do you remember what Saul said when he returned from battle? In verse 13 he proclaimed, "I have performed the commandment of the Lord."

In his mind, he'd done what God had told him to do. Except that he didn't.

Spread the Good Word: Psalm 141:3

Today's Good Word sounds like a great prayer that we can all pray at the start of each day. Wouldn't it be wonderful to go an entire day without saying something negative, hurtful, or careless? What about that imaptient, demanding tone we sometimes use? I'm sure we'd all like to reach out and grab some of the words we said yesterday and put them back into our mouths.

Spread the Good Word: Exodus 12:13

Today's Good Word comes from the passover story. If you remember, Moses instructed the children of Israel in Egypt to put the blood of a lamb on their doorposts so that they'd be spared from the final plague — the death of the family's firstborn.

If you are going through something difficult today, we hope that the simple promise in today's Good Word brings you comfort and hope. 

The next time you feel like you're in a hurricane of hardship, just imagine the Lord pushing away all of the bad things that are happening, replacing the howling wind with beautiful harmony. Imagine Him fully surrounding you with His protection so that nothing can touch you. And, most importantly, reiterating His promise that He will deliver you from this time of trouble.

Spread the Good Word: Proverbs 29:18

Today's Good Word reminds us how important it is to see clearly. And you know we're not talking glasses and contact lenses. We need our inner eye to be operating as close to 20/20 as possible. 

What does that mean?

Spread the Good Word: Luke 11:3

Today's Good Word reminds us that we must look to God every day for natural and spiritual sustenance.

Thankfully, many of us have enough actual "bread" on hand to last for weeks, so we're not wondering where our next meal is going to come from. But, each day we thank God for the food He provides, realizing that it's there because of His grace.

Spread the Good Word: Hebrews 6:10

Today's Good Word reminds us that the work we do isn't for nothing. Sometimes we don't see the results we desire in the timeframe we expect, especially when it comes to the things of God. 

Maybe you've been teaching youth classes, but it doesn't seem like the young people are "getting it." Perhaps you've been giving your testimony to a friend or co-worker, and he or she hasn't comitted to visiting church yet. These things take time.

Today's Good Word inspires us to take inventory of the major influences in our lives and ask, "Does this thing invite and entice me to do good and love and serve God?"

If the answer is no, then we should rethink that thing and probably get rid of its influence on us.

Spread the Good Word: 1 John 4:19

Today's Good Word is one you've likely heard before if you've been hanging around church for any length of time. Let's look at it and remember why it's so often quoted. 

We love Him. Who? God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Amen!

Spread the Good Word: Romans 13:10

When Jesus Christ walked the earth, He did many amazing things that left people speechless. One of these is when he took hundreds of years of laws — the Law of Moses — and summed it up in two commandments that pretty much anyone can understand. 

1. Love God.

2. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Spread the Good Word: Romans 12:9

Spread the Good Word: Romans 12:9

Abhor: to regard with disgust or hatred

Synonyms: loathe, detest, despise

Today's Good Word reminds us how we're supposed to feel toward evil. We're not supposed to admire that which is evil. Or acclaim that which is evil. Or applaud that which is evil. We're supposed to abhor that which is evil.
