Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 January 25

“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit”
(Hebrews 6:1-3).

Today’s Morsel:  It seems that many are graduating from college in hopes of bettering themselves, and having opportunities for a better job, jobs that offer them better pay.  But I am afraid that perhaps most of them that are graduating, are graduating without having been taught anything about ethics or godly principles and values to guide them during their day to day life.  Jesus admonishes us, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul” (Matthew 16:26)?  If we have a degree without principles, it is just a piece of paper.  But if we have godly values and principles guiding us with that degree, then we will see how valuable it can be.  Let us go on to perfection.  In a comparative sense, to a more perfect knowledge of things, which the clear revelation and ministry of the Gospel leads to.  You don’t need to be taught everything in life by the school of hard knocks.

Sing:  Learning to lean, I’m learning to lean, I’m learning to lean on Jesus.  Finding more power than I’ve ever dreamed, I’m learning to lean on Jesus!

Thought For Today:  You don’t need to be taught everything in life by the school of hard knocks. (Parker)
