DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

A man owned a small farm in South Carolina.
The South Carolina Wage & Hours Department claimed
he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an
agent out to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay
them", demanded the Agent.

"Well," replied the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's
been with me for 3 years. I pay him $400.00 a week plus
free room and board.
The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $300.00
per week plus free room and board.
There's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day and
does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about
$10.00 per week and pays his own room and board."

Agent, "That's the guy I want to talk to."

Farmer, "That would be ME!"

Acts 4:13
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John,
and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men,
they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they
had been with Jesus.

LIGHT from the WORD.

The "rulers and elders" (Acts 4:8) thought because Peter and
John had no formal education, they were "unlearned and ignorant."
Thank God, each of these "unlearned and ignorant" men were used
of God's Holy Spirit to write part of the Bible, and leave a record
of salvation through Jesus Christ!!

Being "with Jesus" makes all the difference in the world about
having genuine understanding!

I've heard many lectures from educated men, which bored
me to sleep.
I've heard many sermons from uneducated men, which put
me on the edge of my seat!

Education is obtaining (and hopefully retaining) factual knowledge.
Wisdom and understanding is how one uses education.

Let us obtain and encourage good formal education.
But let us also encourage spending time with Jesus,
from Whom we receive "knowledge and understanding!"

Spend time with Jesus through prayer and study each day!

Love ya!
Bro. Bruce
