Robbery

Scripture reading

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
–Hebrews 4:12

Thought of the Day

I read a great article not long ago which was a great example of the amazing impact of the Word of God. It was about a sixty seven year old Australian minister named Sterling Tillotson. Reverend Tillotson recently walked into a local jewelry store to get his watch repaired, just in time to witness a robbery. The good reverend walked up to the would be robber and knocked him out cold with his Bible. Yes, I said his Bible. After the incident the kindly minister convinced the jeweler to forgive the thief. The store owner did not press charges.
Now I am not sure of the deep theological meaning of this story, but I guess you never know how God is going to speak to you. Be careful out there.

Prayer

O God, Open my heart so that your Word can impact my every move. Amen.
