Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Matthew 7: 24-27. There is much to say about wisdom when it comes to having a home and raising a family. It is a necessity; wisdom, that is. It can determine the success or failure of your family; its strengths and its weaknesses, it’s joys and its sorrows to a large extent.

21 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

The Wise and Foolish Builders

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

When you are just starting out in life, you most likely have a picture in your mind of just how you want your life to be. Whether single, engaged or married, you want to be prepared to build a strong home. What I can tell you for sure, the only way to get there is through obtaining godly wisdom.

Listen, you have to be dedicated to gain wisdom. Certainly, you have a measure of wisdom, but there is much more to be obtained. Crave it. If you do, understanding will come, and if you live by it, your home will be a home of peace and love. There will be beautiful treasured memories of a life well-lived.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for today and all that you have done for me. Help me, Lord to get wisdom. Help me to walk in wisdom I ask you Lord for a strong, godly home filled with precious treasures.

In Jesus’ name, Amen
