Our Daily Manna Devotional 29th June 2018 By Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe

TOPIC: THE MATTRESS OR THE SON

Basic Scriptures: Deuteronomy  6: 1-12

Some years ago, there was news over the radio that a building was on fire. The fire fighters arrived quickly and extended a ladder to a window where a woman with a baby in her arm, was screaming for help. Immediately, a safety net was assembled and she and she was told to let the child drop into the net.

The child fell into net unharmed. “Now, you come down the ladder,” she was told. Then the fighters noticed that she was pulling a big mattress through the window which she held unto with one hand as she came down the ladder, refusing to let it fall. They were to learn that she had all her money in that mattress. Anybody can shout “Hallelujah” and “Amen” when all is well. But our sense of value and who we really are is often revealed in a “crisis situation” when we are pressurized into letting go of some things and hanging or clinging unto others.

Under “normal circumstances”, would the woman have agreed than the mattress was more important to her than baby? But her readiness and zeal to let the baby in to the safety net but not the mattress showed clearly where her real treasure was: The mattress! Some have tagged the Supreme Command of Deuteronomy 6: 5 as the “ALL-COMMAND” because of the three-fold “ALL” – “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might” (ESV).

There room here for divided affection or allegiance. What then is the meaning of loving God with our “might”? The Word-translated “MIGHT/STRENGTH” in Deuteronomy 6: 5usually functions as the adverb “VERY” in the Old Testament (298) times. It is an ACTION WORD! As you finish today’s devotional, ask yourself: Does any engagement take first place over THE LORD or over worship on Sundays or weekday services?

How many minutes (hours) do you spend with God in private prayer and the WORD daily and how many hours do you spend on social media, your phones, or at a party weekly? The money we spent for God in most cases is usually the least in our budgets. Imagine just how many hours you spend at the saloon or behind the mirror every morning, decorating your body of earthly vanity – a piece of dust.

How many do you spend in your daily quiet time alone with God? Where exactly have you stored your treasures – your heart? Life is vanity! As the FIRST HALF of 2018 ends, if you want to be first and be head in all you do in 2ND HALF, put the LORD first!
