The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those that are bruised.
Thought of the Day
I wish that today were Benjamin Franklin’s birthday so that you would really be impressed with the timeliness of this fact. Unfortunately old Ben was born on … I really can’t tell you. Of course if I don’t know, maybe you don’t know either. So in case you don’t know; Today is Ben Franklin’s birthday and in honor of old Ben, I want to tell you this interesting fact about him.
During most of his adult life, each morning, Mr. Franklin would ask himself this question. “What good shall I do today?” Each evening, he would reflect on the question, “What good have I done today?”
I always knew Ben was smart, but now I am really impressed. You see, he knew that we were put upon this earth to make a difference and to do some good, each and every day of our lives. Maybe this is a great time to start being like Ben and to ask ourselves the same questions each morning and night. Try it. I can’t think of a better way to prepare for the coming of the Christ Child.
Father, What good shall we do today? Amen.
