“One expression in Titus 2 deserves special notice. It is the word homemakers. The Greek word is oikourgous, which literally means “workers at home.” Oikos is the Greek word for “home,” and ergon means “work, employment.” It suggests that a married woman’s first duty is to her own family, in her own household. Managing her own home should be her primary employment, her first task, her most important job, and her true career.”

– JOHN MACARTHUR

Daily Devotional: Forward or Backward

At 72, I look and feel older.

Both the mirror and camera capture the real me. My many ailments are physical signs of aging.

Remember wind up clocks?

I once heard a thought provoking quote. ‘You can’t turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again.’ (Bonnie Prudden)

“Return and say to Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your father David says: ‘I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I am going to heal you. On the th

What’s your honest opinion? Do red lights interfere with your schedule?

My husband doesn’t like sitting at big city red lights. They take so long to change. Personally, I prefer red lights over 4-way stop signs. Red lights take the guess work out of stopping and proceeding into traffic. I wouldn’t find opinions or preferences in the Louisiana driver’s manual. The pamphlet explains the laws.

What about caution lights? Many drivers speed up to avoid the changing from yello

Psalm 23

"Jesus is my Shepherd; I shall not want. Jesus makes me lie down in green pastures: Jesus leads me beside the still waters. Jesus restores my soul: Jesus leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Jesus is with me; Jesus' rod and His staff comfort me. Jesus prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Jesus anoints my head with oil; my cup runs

“In contrast to the wise woman, the foolish woman is not content to be a keeper at home. She is not satisfied with where God has put her. One of the things the feminist movement has done so successfully is to stir up discontent in women with being homemakers and to convince them that other pursuits can increase their sense of self-worth… Fueling discontent and pushing women out of their homes in search of greater meaning and satisfaction has resulted in off-the-chart stress levels for many

Daily Devotional: What a Find

Many accuse Christ followers and evangelicals of being narrow minded. In a way, thats true. Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14 NASB).

Daily Devotional: What a Find

by PamFord Davis  

 

 

I have a terrible sense of direction.

I’m easily confused; especially in new places. The problem goes beyond highways and interstates; I have a hard time finding our table in a restaurant when returning from the ladies room.

Do I turn right or left? I wonder if a GPS would help.

Is there help for the confused?

Oh no, this town has one-way streets.

Help!

I know one thing; there is only one way to God.

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no

“Just a minute! You can’t forget the crowning jewel of all – contentment! This jewel adds luster to your crown. This jewel releases your husband from bondage and pressure. Sadly, it is often a missing jewel. It’s easy to be content when you have everything you want. But can you learn to be content when you don’t have everything you want? Can you be content with what your husband provides for you? I am always challenged by Psalm 128:3 TLB where it talks about the “contented” wife in the h
