Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 5 May 2021




The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.(Proverbs 11:5)


Today’s Morsel: One of the things about ability is it will enable a man to go to the top, but it will take character to keep him there.  In one’s own wicked way, which he has chosen and delights to walk in; he shall stumble therein, and fall to ruin and destruction, into hell and damnation.  Jesus said that “if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.(John 11:10)  Ability refers to being able to do something, which means that if a person can do something, they have the ability to do it.  Men are often elected for a job based on their skills and talents.  The good man, not blinded by passion, follows a safe and direct path of life; but the wicked, led by his own evil propensity, and losing the light of conscience, stumbles and fails.  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.(Isaiah 35:8)  Remember,  ability can get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.


Sing:  Oh, there’s a highway to heaven.  None can walk up there but the pure in heart. Oh, there’s a highway to heaven, walking up the King’s highway!


Thought For Today: “And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness.”


  1. Character is something the world has either forgotten or ignores. But it is essential for the child of God that wants to walk as Jesus walked.
