Daily Devotionals


Writing in his diary, a young man predicted his future: “Someday I’m going to do something special with my life. I will become famous!”

Years later, an old man said to his family, “I could have done great things with my life, but I didn’t. I am so sorry. I wish I had. I am a failure.”

What a tragic disclosure! The old man now talking was once the young man dreaming

God gives each of us a limited number of days, a select number of skills, and with them the ability to do something honorable. None of us know the number of our days or the length of our life. Some of us never develop the skills God has given us. Many do not invest the talents God has given them wisely, wasting their lives on the frivolous unaware of God’s gifts.

An important question to ask ourselves every day is this: “What am I going to do with the time, the talents and treasures God has given me today?” For this day may be our last.

We have no assurance of tomorrow. We may lose the skills that we have through a tragedy or our treasures may be taken from us without warning. When we attach our lives to God’s power and His plan, we will have no regrets. Our lives will honor God and bless others.

Prayer:  Teach us, Lord, to be faithful to You and to make the most of all You have given us. May we take Your gifts, invest them wisely, and do what honors You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture For Today:    Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6
