The scripture for today, August 18 (8/18), is Mark 8:18f as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember when I broke [in pieces] the five loaves for the five thousand [hungry people]? How many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”
Economic and political times are uncertain and unstable right now for a lot of people. How much do you worry about it? Planning is good. But worrying?
Instead of spending your time worrying and tearing down your mental and physical health, do what you can, then look around. Is there someone else you can help? Visit someone who is sick and clean up their kitchen for them? Tell a story to a little child? Sing a song to an elderly person and invite them to sing along with you? Write a letter to your parents or a ground child? Read to someone with poor eyesight?
While you’re busy helping others, take Jesus’ advice and remember your past. Ask yourself, “Has God forsaken me in the past?
Sit down and make a list of every time you made it through a bad period of time in your life. How did God get you through them? This is your proof.
Remember your proof.
LUKE: SLAVE & PHYSICIANS. Physicians in the first-century Roman Empire were slaves, usually of one rich family. Go along with Luke as he progresses from a slave to Tribune Theophilus, to whatever medical education was available (not much), to being the personal physician to an apostle whose body had been tortured every way possible, to authoring two books of the Bible.
