Our Greatest Need

You can put a public school and university in the middle of every block of every city in America—but you will never keep America from rotting morally by mere intellectual education. Education cannot be properly called education which neglects the most important parts of man’s nature. Partial education throughout the world is far worse than none at all if we educate the mind but not the soul. To think of civilizing men without converting them to Christ is about as wise as to think about transforming wolves into lambs merely by washing them and putting on them a fleece of wool. “Happy are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy.” The mercy the world needs is the grace, love, and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is His transforming and regenerating power that the world needs more than anything else.

Prayer for the day

Merciful Lord, may my life be filled with Your outflowing love for others.

    I was recently given the opportunity to view Kirk Cameron’s video called “Monumental”. The content agrees with what you have said , as I do also. There is nothing more important for all people to know than the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ, my Savior!

    Lord pls have mercy on me. Forgive me all my sins and give me the grace to work in accordance to your will in Jesus name

    We so often get so wrapped in ourselves, that we forget to love others, help others, and show mercy to those in need. This is sooo important as it not only benefit them, but us,in return! I have learned this lesson so many times during a divorce, grief, etc. By loving and helping others, it helps us through troubling times and certainly heals us. Today’s society is so “self/me” oriented, and we need to remember that loving and giving to others is a critical part of being a Christian.
