Be Bold for God

Scripture reading

The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.

–Proverbs 28:1

Thought of the Day

What do you know about fleas? I bet I know more than you do. That is because I just read an article about these little annoying things. Did you know there are about 1,600 species of fleas in the world? Did you know that all the world’s fleas probably weigh more than the world’s humans? If your cat or dog has a dozen or two on them, there are probably another 10,000 hiding out in your carpet. Have you had enough? Let me tell you one more fact that amazed me. As small as they are, fleas have unbelievable jumping ability. If you had the jumping ability of a flea, you could jump to the top of a twenty-five story building in a single bound, thirty thousand times in a row! (If you had the jumping ability of a flea you could make a lot of money jumping on buildings and things. I would for sure pay to see you jump.) So now you know what I know about fleas.

Let me tell you what else I know. I know God wants us to be bold as lions for Him. I know that He wants us to be bold in our witness, and in our loving, and in our service to others. Be Bold!

p.s. If you are wondering how I managed to tie this scripture in with fleas, it was the closest thing I could find. Flees = fleas.


Lord, I can do all things through You. Amen.
