A closer walk with our beloved friend.

We Do the Same.



Then Gideon made it into an ephod and set it up in his city, Ophrah. And all Israel played the harlot with it there. It became a snare to Gideon and to his house. Judges 8:27 New King James Version                                                                                                              

After Gideon conquered the oppressors of Israel he took some of the booty and made a monument to his victory instead of using it to give glory to Jehovah. After he died the people worshipped the alter rather than Jehovah.                                           

How many people do that today?                                                                                    

Just look in any town or city and count the monuments to great heroes of any country. How many alters (statutes) are there for great men or women or great victories in battle that give glory to the individual compared to how many there are to Jehovah who inspired and strengthened and assisted in the victory?              

Do you take credit for any great victories in your life instead of giving glory than thanks to Jehovah?                    


An example is: how many alcoholics believe it was of their own willpower that they conquered the demon drink and then one day give in to temptation that leads them to complete ruin?                    


I have seen a fair amount of it.                                                                                                   

Prayer: Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) I am eternally grateful for the wonderful privilege of worshipping the most magnificent God of all. Thank You Jesus that it was through Your magnanous sacrifice that this is possible. In Your glorious name I give thanks. Amen.                                                                                          

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. You are right. If we do anything, it is by the will of and with the help of the Lord! And He deserves the praise for helping us, as He always does!
