Daily Reading – Job 40-42 / Acts 28:1-16
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Acts 28:6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
In Acts 28, the folks on the island of Melita changed their minds a few times. First they welcomed everyone off the boat and treated them kind. After a poisonous snake bit Paul, they saw him as a criminal getting what’s coming to him. When the poison had no effect, they changed their mind again and saw him as a god.
It’s true that things around us will at times cause us to change our minds. People are watching everything we do as Christians and listening to all that we say. The Bible says in Matt. 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
We sure don’t want people to see us as god’s,
but how great would it be if they instead
saw our God in us?
