Move Yourself

Scripture reading

And those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
–Daniel 12:3

Thought of the Day

If you only have one name, is it your first or last name? I am not talking about people who are so famous that they can go by one name. People like Elvis, or Madonna, or Bozo. (I am pretty sure “the Clown” is not Bozo’s middle and last name.) The reason I was wondering is that I just read a great quote by Socrates and I don’t know my history enough to know which name it is. (or was, I guess) If he is really just a one-namer guy then I wonder what his mama called him whenever she was mad. I guess she could have stretched his name out to three long syllables. SO CRA TES !! Anyway, here is the quote:

‘Let him that would move the world, first move himself.”

Mr. Socrates (or whatever) was a pretty smart guy. He figured out how to change his world. Daniel figured out how to change his world with God at his side. How about you? Are you ready to move yourself?


God in heaven above, I can move mountains with You. Amen.
