THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Harry found a grandfather clock marked 25% off.
It was exactly what he wanted, so he paid for it and had it delivered the next day.

When it was delivered he set it up in a prominent place in the living room.
You can imagine Harry’s surprise when he discovered that it ran slow!
No matter how he adjusted it, the clock lost 15 minutes every hour.

Returning to the clock store, Harry complained to the manager "The grandfather clock I bought loses 15 minutes every hour."

The clerk replied, "Well, what did you expect? It was clearly marked 25% off!"

Our expectations of life and people don't always meet the standards which we'd like to see.
Life is sometimes cruel.
If we're looking to the world to meet our expectations, we'll be sorely disappointed.

But if we look to Jesus to fulfill our expectations, we have HOPE!

In Christ we may constantly draw on the "bank of faith."
In Christ we may see our needs met by God's lovingkindness.
In Christ we may have expectations completely beyond this world!

Our expectations from the world are:
to attend school when we reach the age of five,
to drive when we reach the age of 16,
to graduate high school when we are 17 or 18,
to graduate college, if we can,
to find a good job, and
to (hopefully) reach retirement age and "take it easy,"

BUT THEN WHAT?

This world offers no more!
But Christ offers eternal life with Him in a place called heaven!

Let me wait not upon the world, nor upon people for my expectations.
Let me wait upon CHRIST!

Love ya!
